It's been one hell of a journey, but we're stoked to finally release this thing into the wild to hopefully inspire you all to grab your bike, head outside and keep things loud, fast and fun.

 Gonna watch this when I get home from work, then hurt myself cause I'm all hyped up from the movie and think I can ride. It's good to have a plan.

 Geez, didn't know that Greg Minnaar could do a superman seat grab on a jump that big, for someone who focuses on speed and racing thats pretty sick. Sometimes forget how good these pro riders are.

 We just watched it. Fantastic riding and locations. We are generally very disappointed of the editor(s) of this movie:

Good:
+ Locations
+ Riders
+ Amount of Story
+ Length
+ Equipment
+ All your drone clips are awesome
+ Digital Download + Price (bought it on Vimeo)

Bad:
- Extrem amount of cuts between kind of random clips or not showing a clip long enough (you feel like they wanted to include every clip they ever filmed. to achieve that they cut insanely fast between good clips, bad clips and complete garbage)
- Camera work (Only the most obvious ones that are used very often and are very annoying: 1. Generally far to close on the rider+bike resulting in riding out of the screen. 2. Zooming into something. 3. Moving the camera too fast.)

Conclusion:
This movie could've been so much better! You filmed so much, that there are many good clips and many bad ones. Please rerelease this movie edited better.

 I agree. So much hype, and such an amazing cast... and it all fell apart in editing. It watched like an early NWD film, but not in a good way. Riders out of frame for the majority of their shots, sections where the same jump is shown a dozen times, but the landing isn't shown once, sections that are clearly sped up, and cheesy cuts make for a disappointing video. In the end I felt like they made a really good trailer, then edited a bunch of b-footage in to make it longer.

 @dkidd: This is how it suposed to be, you know like in skateboarding videos, short clips, fast action and sick riding. Editing goes really well with the soundtrack it's not like "hey lets put some random clips with punk/metal in the background like in these shreddits". For me this is a perfect bike movie. It's like earthed, nwd, made, deathgrip crossover. I was dreaming about movie like that for a very long time and finally some delivered it.

It shows the sport as it is, not in some fake epic way and it really makes me stoked to ride, stoked as f*ck.

 @zalev24: Fair enough. I'm glad that you liked it!
  • + 3
 @dkidd @luigi777 : @zalev24 you're totally right, this isn't a movie for fans of the collective(a great movie for sure) this is raw, powerful, lights a complete fire under your ass. This movie was the the absolute perfect movie (for me anyway). It brought back all the nostalgia of early nwd. Just a ton of absolute shredding with a great soundtrack. Couldn't be happier after watching that.
  • + 2
 Disagree, I think the style was intentional and they pulled it off really, really damn well. The ONLY shot I would've liked to see different was a longer/slower/wider of Brook on the step-up with the entire backdrop in frame for longer.

 Also Steve Peat riding in Sheffield with Arctic Monkeys is pretty badass.

 It is nice to hear that narration, see guys having fun but for God’s sake - how much berm ripping can I watch in a row?? I get that pure speed but I found myself thinking about skipping riding and watching only rider description after 3 segments...

 Watched it the night before Whistler Bike Park opening weekend, thought it was sick, loved the pace and speed and soundtrack... laughed at Finn Iles getting denied into Handlebar on Earthed trivia, quality. Thanks to everyone involved in making this.

 Bought it. Watched it. Can’t see myself watching it again. Just found it went on and on without showing anything new. Prefer Strength in Numbers and the soundtrack that goes with it. Just my thoughts...

 Such a disappointment. I expected so much more from that. So many great riders/racers involved and such a flatness Frown Shame

 Yeah, go watch that melodrama Life Cycles again, Gamble is for real shredders.
  • + 0
 @zalev24: Real shredders like you, right? Ha ha.

Deathgrip was better, Motive was better, Builder or Arrival too. There are some options. Not only Gamble and Life Cycles. And Ride Yor F#*king Bike was for Shredders, to be honest.
