The international Isle of Man Tourist Trophy is the most dangerous motorcycle race in the world. At this annual racing event, countless riders loose their lives as they brave down a dangerous, rocket-course that requires a minimum of two-year training. In the new documentary ~ TT 3D: Closer To The Edge ~ I had the privilege of watching Isle of Man Tourist Trophy course and its compelling racers including Guy Martin, whom I found entertaining and compelling. And even though, I was unable to comprehend Martin‘s accent and uttered words, I was fully-vested and didn’t care.
The TT 3D: Closer To The Edge is a must-see film; especially, the action sequences which had my eyes glued to every frame from moment-to-moment. It was shot and released as a three-dimensional film, which only lend to the effects of motorcycles popping from the screen as the racers sped down the residential roads at the speed of 200 miles-per-hour —- as they flipped wheelies and burst into death-defying flames.
Warning: People f***ing die in International Isle of Man TT, so it’s obviously not for the faint of heart.
Synposis: The Isle of Man Tourist Trophy is the greatest motorcycle road race in the world, the ultimate challenge for rider and machine. It has always called for a commitment far beyond any other racing event, and many have made the ultimate sacrifice in their quest for victory. A story about freedom of choice, the strength of human spirit and the will to win. It’s also an examination of what motivates those rare few, this elite band of brothers who risk everything to win. The vision of top commercials director Richard de Aragues, this promises to be one of the most thrilling films of 2011.
Director Richard De Aragues’s Isle of Man Tourist Trophy is out on DVD and Blu-Ray with the narration of Jared Leto and starring Guy Martin, Ian Hutchinson and John McGuinness.
