Terrible bike movie, it was a movie aimed more towards a visual and scenery not so much on riding or the making of bike, I have to say I is a green thing its main focus was on nature and preservation of nature, not so much for awesome riding. Out of 10 I give it a 4 for bike movies. I would still love to shred some of the locations filmed though, UNSATISFIED

really a one watch movie, the riding was sick, yet the moral was mixed and felt confused.


(i did watch it months ago at the premier)

I really enjoyed this film

its easily the best "film with bikes" I have ever seen

but not a "bike film" as such, if that makes sense?


if you are expecting something like Roam or NWD you will be disappointed


but if you want a beautifully made film featuring bikes based around the concept of atrophy (decay - the passing of time) then this is unlike anything ever made

I have a sad feeling its not going to be appreciated by many riders wanting a more action-orientated movie

I thought the cinematography of the film was pretty much perfect, i haven't seen anything like it.

I loved the part where the surroundings changed around the rider as he was travelling down the trail and the fact that they used the sound of the riders very well and a lot of full speed shots giving you more of a feel of the trail.

it might be just me, but i thought the sickest part of the film was when that guy (i think its mike hopkins) hits that huge hip not only was it huge but the filming of it was pretty epic

they could have easily attracted more people to the film, just using bigger jumps and more technical trails and they could have kept the incredible film work

I thought that Life Cycles was a pretty good movie though I didn't like how they tried to give bicycles a really deep meaning. To me, the actual riding is the deep part, not the thing I'm riding. Also, the computer effects used when they showed the changing seasons was pretty neat but, since it was used for a long period of time, it gave too much of a computer generated feel. Though that's just me.

On the positive side, I liked how they stepped out of the box of traditional biking films. Finally, I like the building and farm scenes. Seeing guys fly out of fields was pretty awesome.

Overall i enjoyed the movie, but was also a bit disappointed. They needed more parts like Cam and Brandons, and less timelapses of trees and stuff. I'm not saying i didnt appreciate the work that went into it, the editing was amazing, but i was somewhat disappointed after all the hype it received. If they'd had 1/2 the amount of timelapses/scenery and used that extra time for riding then it would have been an absolutely amazing movie.

I received my Blu-Ray this week and it is absolutely stunning to watch in High-Definition

I have large collection (170+) of Blu Ray movies and Life Cycles is one of the best in terms of sheer picture quality

the narrator said he cried when his first bike broke and that his "first bike had become a part of him". i think riding became a part of him, not his broken bike.

Hey sorry to grave dig, but I really want to pick up a copy of Life Cycles on Blu Ray. Is it a double disc set including a DVD disc? I would like to rip it to my computer to watch on my Zune.

If I download it in HD off of iTunes can i stream it via PS3? And is it DMR'd?

You cannot stream it to your PS3 from your iTunes account. However there *may* be a program that might allow you to strip the DRM from the video and convert it into a format that will work on your PS3.
