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.

Best TT documentary I've seen by farBy a customer , 29 Oct 2012I've only watched a handful of films about the TT - as a road rider of 30+ years I've never really got into the racing side. But of the films I've seen, this is the best by far.
A fairly slow build-up lets us get to know the riders, so that when the action really starts we have a personal interest in what's going on.
To use another hoary old cliche, 'the highs and lows of racing' really does apply here - the highs of multiple wins, the lows of multiple fractures. And, sadly, worse.
seen it 4 times!By pusycatz (2 reviews) from Tamworth , 28 Oct 2012we could watch this over and over again any day of the week....such a fantastic film about the dedication and guts of the elite riders of one of the worlds toughest tracks (claimed a huge amount of lives......but as they say, if they didn't want to do it.....they wouldn't...!)
Funny but also EDGE OF THE SEAT......butt clenching adrenalin film.
A must see for bikers and non-bikers alike.....:-)
Watch it , feel it , love itBy reedrothchild (1 review) , 21 Oct 2012Not a been a bike fan or been able to ride one I wouldn't have thought this would have been for me . But I was riveted from start to finish . I don't know who what or where I end up routing for or liking or having the most respect for the most, is it the people riding the bikes, the fans , the friends and families, the place , the bikes or the TT race . I could not do it justice her I will just sum it up as not just
A MUST WATCH FOR A DOCUMENTARY BUT A MUST WATCH FOR A FILM
Bike riders may wish to look away.By jg05hog (1 review) , 12 Oct 2012I ride every day but this film gives me the jitters.
The film gets you right on the bike at mind blowing speed.
At times you have to close your eyes because you are right there with them.
Excelent film, well put together.
