I have never seen a film that more completely defines me. I went into this not knowing what to expect. It was like my soul was on display. There were key interviews that brought me to tears so powerful and beautiful. Just one example was the double amputee who in 3 + years over 80,000 miles , rode around the world! When he speaks, it will move you , if it doesn't , you can't be moved. The film struck me at my most basic, most inner core. Some great action footage, some in slomo which is very artfully done from all aspects of motorcycling, moto GP, cruisers, motocross, hill climbing, steeped in History and historical figures with major contibutions to the advancement of motorcycling. Mert Lawell from On Any Sunday has a part in this film, so many others. My wife half expected to just go to humor me and at times she was laughing and other times squaling (she's a softy too). I think it is available on DVD but I'm glad I saw this on the big screen in digital theatre. It was huge for me! I will own it on DVD. The theatre was full of motorcycle enthusiest, I found myself praying that the lights weren't about to come on because i had tears still on my face and would be embarrassed. Until yesterday, I have only attended 2 movies in my life were the audience clapped,Rocky movie where he beat the Russian and Cinderella Man (yeah, 2 boxing movies) now i have been to 3 ! At the end of the movie, I wanted to clap but was too shy, then someone else started clapping and the room erupted with clapping! I was glad someone was not afraid to express this gesture of appreciation so that I could also. Later, my wife told me she wanted to clap too but was too shy. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
