I saw the big screen, big sound, big gala film premier at the Palms and it was freaking awesome. This is a big mountain, big screen, big audio system movie! It is a shame everyone cannot see this film in this environment. It has balls to the wall riding, with serious risk to the riders who are laying it out in places they have no rights to be. BIg D, Brad, Jeremy and everyone who put this together deserve big praise as do the riders! A really inspirational film! Wicked work!

I wish I could have seen it on the big screen! Watching on my 15" computer screen and was still blown away I could only imagine what it would have been like to be at the Palms. I am definetly getting this on Blue Ray to get the full experience.
Amazing movie great filming, great riding and a wicked story to go with it. WELL DONE.

I ended up just remembering about the premier and watched it on my iPhone. Still awesome!

Such a sick movie, everything was spot on. Loved it.

Sick sick sick! Good to put a face to the names behind the cameras!

extremely well filmed and sick riding but something about it was just dull... I found myself being bored maybe it was the soundtrack or just the story line in general or even the huge hype before it but it just didnt do it for me although its definetly worth buying just for the shots

How much of the $30 actually goes to the movie makers?
(Sep 25, 2012 at 8:48)
Wouldn't mind getting a copy ordered but after they released all the best bits from Strength in Numbers shortly after I bought it I wounder if its worth the £25 or should I just wait it out.....

Am I the only one around here who thinks old NWDs are better than this? The half of the film is slow motion scene about smiling chinese children, and Berrecloth googling on his iMac... [sorry for my english :]

I loved the film, it was great, groundbreaking? I don't think so...
(Sep 25, 2012 at 0:30)
It was ground breaking because it told a story, and it pushed the limits of mountain biking, and the riders. It deviated from the old style of mountain bike film making like the NWDs. Don't get me wrong those were awesome but it put a new perspective on the sport.

This movie in itself only pushed one boundary, the fact that these guys actually left BC for once. The repetitive helicopter shots where not groundbreaking, the contour-amateur-hour shots where not groundbreaking, the bike riding was not groundbreaking, everything they did in this film I have either seen done before on the web, in another movie or in a contest. The story was not groundbreaking as the story was all about 'is there a better place than Utah' whoa, great story.... for everyone who has experienced utah.
The only thing different about this movie was the perspective that it was told in, good enough for the label of groundbreaking? hardly.
Seriously, this movie was awesome, I thoroughly enjoyed it and I don't hate it at all, but expressions like 'groundbreaking' get used and abused these days like a hooker in a prison.
(Sep 25, 2012 at 6:11)
It was only groundbreaking in terms of budget. I personally found this movie dull as dishwater. The first 10 mins were awesome but when my mind craved a change it just didn't come. I honestly believe by overkilling the heli shots they detracted from the whole epicness of the film. I didn't hate this movie- but I'm glad it was free to watch because I was expecting something magical and this fell way short. If someone bought me the DVD I reckon it'd be several years before the packaging was removed.

fuck i missed it !!!
(Sep 25, 2012 at 9:29)
I didn't manage to catch the film but is it not basically the same story line etc as redbull media house's other snowboarding film, The Art of Flight? Only the mountain biking version pretty much. I would say there was nothing ground breaking in copying a film you have already produced. Taking nothing away from the filming, it looks sick but not anything ground breaking.
(Sep 25, 2012 at 9:57)
to be fair, the riding in the film had to be some of the most ridiculous riding i've ever seen! it's all to easy to take it all for granted and say 'i've seen it all before' but knowing how much easier things look on screen than in reality the riding just blows you away! You could defiantly say it's ground breaking based on the fact that there is no other mountainbike film like it! (correct me if i'm wrong) When will people stop complaining on the internet and just enjoy an awesome film!?
(Sep 25, 2012 at 12:35)
Reading those neg comments about the film saying that this movie wasn't groundbraking and it was rather boring i'm asking myself a question have i watched diffrent movie than those people? In movie that i've watched there was an epic photography, sick lines in sick places. The level of riding - so high! Saying that (LiamReanut) it pushed the bounderies only because guys left the BC is a little bit unfair. I would understand if they would ride only in utah. But they were riding in places that nobody ever before ridden. In the Gobi in China or Nepal!. In the fu*king Nepal man!... Exploring new spots 10000 miles away home, in country that nobody speaks english, climbing 12 hours in Himalayas, sleeping in tents, without showers.... Nobody ever done something like that and i think that is what you call pushing the boundaries of your sport.
I think this is the first movie that has got so massive sponsorship and marketing from red bull for exp. getting 1 milion shares on facebook or premiere in Las Vegas.
Thanks to this movie our sport is more commonly known, normal people around us know how awesome, challenging and demanding this sport is. It also showed other perspectives on big mountainbiking!
(Sep 25, 2012 at 17:25)
I was merely backing up my original statement with an explanation, take it which ever way you want to but in my opinion this film was not a groundbreaking film.
(Sep 27, 2012 at 1:53)
I agree with LiamRenaut, the movie was not so innovative, and it was not as game changing or revolutionary as they presented it in the interviews. My personal feeling while I was watchin' it: wow! Look at those steep powdery chutes! It's like big mountain snowboarding! Look at that guy with the Knolly!... he is actually skiing! F!"£kin' awesome!... 20 minutes later I'm like "ok, now I'd like to see a couple of corners, a trail or something but at the end they just didn't come and left me a bit disappointed, I think it was repetitive.
And also, I'm not likely to be riding in a desert mountain during my life (just like a lot of people here); in my opinion this thing did not represent our sport completely, it's just the big mountain dreamland part of it.

Damn Brad, Looks good North Delta.... BC has so much talent! " The Dude Abides....!"
(Sep 25, 2012 at 6:41)
Why the Fack is Sal Masekala there?
(Sep 25, 2012 at 10:32)
Because our sport is being homogenized into the realms of skating, BMX and snowboarding.
(Sep 25, 2012 at 9:15)
it cost millions to make???
(Nov 16, 2012 at 7:07)
maybe because of the heli that was filming another heli that was filming a boat...
(Sep 26, 2012 at 18:45)
Such a sick movie and great story behind it.
(Sep 26, 2012 at 17:58)
I wonder how the after party was?

I agree 100% @LiamRenaut , and want to add that some shots were taken in a wrong day time because the shadow over the rider and his line was way too obstructive for espectactor's view point , the soundtrack got short in term of epicness (I love only 1 song)
I saw the Art of Flight after some guy in interview sayed that film ecouraged them to do this film but I find a couple things that didn't work because MBT has distinc dynamic to be watched , its needs a closer shots(sometimes)due to the stunt's amplitude is shorter on MTB(the snowboard guys flies farder and dropping deeper than mx ones IMO) the AOF was a PERFECT sync between landscapes, soudtrack and stunts, its really easy to watch for anyone
And I would like to know the production cost because some guy wrote on his FB that the film had a single(humble) production, and in the interviews the sayed that was 6 zeros number in terms of hollywood productions costs, and finally the crashed were so over hyped.
I love the online premier and despites all my cons I will work harder to buy me a bluray player + LED screen and buy the dam disc becuase I deserve the best quality and those guys (pilots and production cowboys) deserve it too because the gambled their ass to do this is not perfect but it is good enough for the espectatives that I had, and despite all my critics if they had an IMAX version I would travel to live the whole experience
