For those who might
have had their head in the sand for the last few years, this great DVD
chronicles the amazing Nitro Circus tour of Australia and New Zealand
that happened in 2010.
For those not in the
know, Nitro Circus is a show in the States headed up by action sports
star extraordinaire, Travis Pastrana and his mates who essentially do
things that us mere mortals only dream of doing and filming them.
Normally this is done in sometimes heavily controlled environments,
others it could be in the middle of the street. It all started with some
tomfoolery that once captured on a camera, captured the hearts and minds
of those who watched it, making the Nitro Circus a highly popular show
on television. This is the DVD of the crew trying to bring the same
sense of adventure to a live arena spectacular, and how they go about
I really enjoyed this
feature on a lot of levels. First and foremost we got to see the guys
on a professional level and experience just what goes on at a live arena
event, jam packed with thousands upon thousands of excited fans. We got
to see the assembly of the big jumps and ramps that are used, and just
how the team was put together for this show, with members comprising of
true stars in their own sports all coming together to knock the socks
off all who came to see them.
For those who love
their thrills and spills on a pretty extreme level, this is the DVD for
you. The Nitro crew don't do things on a small level, so when accident
occurs, injury follows pretty darn quickly. Whilst the focus is most
certainly not on the gore, there is a scene with a broken ankle that
will be sure to have you rewinding to see it again. Otherwise you are
going to see an amazing show performed by athletes determined to put on
the most amazing theatre the crowd will ever see in their lives.
This is a brilliant DVD
and loads of fun to watch. It is also the sort of DVD that will be
watched more than once, simply for how amazing the tricks are that are
performed during both the shows and practice sessions themselves. The
quality of both the video and audio isn't too bad either, with only a
few noticeable instances of jaggies appearing on the screen around
people's heads and rounded items. Other than that it was a good watch.
I'd certainly recommend
this 2 disc extravaganza to fans of extreme sports and those who like
seeing people work their hearts out to provide nothing but their best in
entertaining an audience. It was a lot of fun to watch and most
certainly something that I'll view again.
