a legend. He’s funny, he’s witty and he does what most males can only
dream about… host a popular and long running TV series and drive some
of the world’s fastest cars. So if you haven’t heard about Top Gear
than obviously you’ve been living in a cave or you couldn’t give a toss
about cars. If you’re
still reading, you must be the former and of course not everything
Clarkson makes turns to gold and unfortunately some of his specials,
without the Top Gear label have been less than impressive and
thankfully Clarkson Duel falls into the middle.
think of the word “duel” and then add Clarkson to it, you’d be hoping to
expect something like those whacky races that has made Top Gear
so popular but in the actual fact, it’s more of a Top Gear light episode and if you’ve been following the series, than you’ve
already seen most of the cars that appear on this feature. The tests
they put the cars through are hilarious such as taking a corner in
slippers or some really cool drag racing.
special does have a few standout moments, besides Clarkson’s humour such
as The Stig as his co-host… sort of and even a cameo from the gang of
Fifth Gear who get involved in an amusing skit with The Stig. All
kidding aside, Clarkson Duel features some impressive car stunts
as they race, drift and even basically be almost as silly as Clarkson is
on Top Gear. The one-off is matched with good video quality and an
interesting behind the scenes segment plus some other (a little boring)
things as well.
just over an hour, Clarkson Duel is a little low on content but
high on laughs and if you’re a fan of Clarkson, than this is a worthy
buy but if you’re a fan of Top Gear, you might want to rent
before you buy. Nonetheless it’s a decent presentation that is almost as
slick as Top Gear itself.
