Not just for bikersBy a customer , 11 Apr 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]I'm no biker but went along to a free screening of this yesterday. The verdict is this movie is so good I'll happily pay to go and see it again.
As a standard 2D film it would be absorbing but the 3D element really draws you into the thrills, spills, highs, desperate lows and utter passion of the TT races. This isn't just about bikes racing at quite literally breakneck speeds it's about all the people involved from the riders themselves, their families, the mechanics, and the officials to the fans who come from across the world.
A day later and I'm still taken aback by the experience. The strapline 'Just because you're breathing doesn't mean you're alive' is spot on. See the film and be moved. It deserves awards by the bucket load and offers more excitement than any blockbuster ever could.

Remove your brain, open the throttle & hold onBy Subbington (1 review) , 22 Jan 2013If you don't like this film then you are dead on the inside. This is the human race at their craziest. Thrilling, funny, heart warming, deadly & inspiring ... I've never been on a bike in my life and after seeing this, never will. An incredible film.
Fascinating - it'll have you glued to the tele..By TAKENONOTICE (3 reviews) from Skipton , 12 Jan 2013Wow! Loved it.. Not a lot else to say really but apparently I need to use 20 words so there it is! WATCH IT!
Smashing movieBy Fre5hprince86 (2 reviews) , 10 Jan 2013A very insightful view as to what TT racers go through. Also an eminently great story of the trials and errors of TT racing legends...great movie
Bikers will love this!By mjpaddler (1 review) , 31 Dec 2012Fabulous insight into the lives of the TT racers, preparation, characters, race action, IoM scenery... all in all superb documentary... I want to spark up my Triumph tomorrow, New Year's Day!
Psychologically fascinatingBy MariaDavies (1 review) , 25 Dec 2012Rivetting viewing. Interesting from a psychological viewpoint in that Guy Martin gets penalised for a minor (& some might call jobs worth) indiscretion, which skewed results. One must realise that guys who risk their lives are not likely to be tolerant of this sort of thing. Fascinating film. Great philosophies.
