Reviews

Cars! Film! Cars on film! Film involving cars! You get the idea. It’s basically a Blu-ray involving those two things.

Gasp as we find the perfect drift car for a gritty, Bourne Identity-style chase! Cheer as we stage a race for all those unsung heroes of the movie industry! Whoop as we find the car that makes the perfect dramatic exhaust note to dub onto an action sequence! Make some other sort of noise we haven’t thought of yet as we re-attempt the classic Man With The Golden Gun barrel roll, having frankly made a total hash of it when we first tried it on telly! All this plus a vast fleet of sexy supercars and a man with a jet pack racing a Skoda.

Top Gear At The Movies. It’s better than an actual movie. Probably. Actually, it depends on which movie we’re talking about. Truth is, you’d be better judging this on a case-by-case basis. Why not write to us with the name of a film and we’ll tell you whether this Blu-ray is better or not. Actually, on second thoughts, don’t.

Format: DVD
Last year's special Apocalypse DVD was an average Top Gear release (at best). A fine premise with a below par execution, suffering from being too long and the lack of Jeremy Clarkson, a crucial component to the Top Gear recipe for success.

For Christmas 2011, Jezza was off filming another DVD again (Powered Up), leaving Hamster and Captain Slow to try again at delivering another Yuletide special for Top Gear fans. And Top Gear: At The Movies is the result.

At The Movies boasts a stronger premise than Apocalypse. Richard and James take the role of film buffs this time, focusing on how integral the car can be for all sorts of cinematic excitement i.e. Bond movies, Bullitt, Gone in 60 Seconds, The Italian Job etc.

And in their antics:

- Hammond and May find out which cars have the best engines to produce the most amazing noise for a chase sequence.
- Using a Land Rover to build their own Bond car!
- Top Gear Stunt Man trying again to replicate the legendary barrel roll from Man With The Golden Gun.
- Richard and his trusty band of rally car drivers racing the unsung cars of the movie industry.
- Testing cars for handling via an exciting action-sequence full of cars, bikes, tanks, baddies and paintball guns!
- And Richard `guiding' rally car champion Toni Gardemeister driving a Skoda as they race Yves Rossy and his trusty jet pack!

Promising stuff? On paper, yes. But like Apocalypse, At The Movies again suffers from unnecessary flaws. I've said this before, but it remains true. Why Top Gear is such essential viewing is because of ALL THREE presenters working together.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Chloe S "Chick Lit Chloe" TOP 500 REVIEWER on 26 Feb. 2012
Format: DVD
The DVD only stars 2 of Top Gear's main presenters Richard Hammond and James May. Considering Jeremy Clarkson is Harry's favourite person in the WORLD, I was a little worried he wouldn't like this, but instead found he was really enjoying it and the high octane action was exactly what he wanted. This DVD shows the two guys telling us all about why cars are important in action movies, and how they can improve on that brilliant cars. We don't actually see any classic cars from movies so if that's what you're expecting, you will be disappointed. However, I think this DVD is perfect for younger fans of the show, and it's certainly flashy, noisy and perfect for all petrol-heads out there.

I don't want to give away too much information about anything on the DVD as its great just to watch it and find out what's going on with Hammond and May. Instead, I'll just take roughly about the items on the DVD and whether they are any good or not. For Harry, the best bit is probably the boys trying to find out the best "goodie and baddie" sounds the car makes, and this involves them driving them very noisily around the Top Gear test track, with lots of gratuitous noise from the cars. This isn't my cup of tea but Harry enjoyed hearing the sounds, and working out which he thought were the best. Amongst the cars featured were Aston Martins, Ferrari's, and Lamborghini's so plenty in there for everyone. I didn't agree with their final decisions, but there you go, what do I know hey?! Another good section is Richard and professional rally driver Toni Gardemeister in a Skoda rally car racing against the "Rocket Man" Yves Rossy with his jet pack. It's a pretty good sequence, with good camera shots, and a good soundtrack, but I have to confess it isn't a favourite of mine or Harry's.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Movies on a tv screen playout without our seeing them but the two chaps watch them, so it requires a fine level of memory for the film sequences they are talking about. Which is a fine jest. For a while. Then it admits to being merely a cobbled together bit of 'what we let these two do on their school holidays' arrangement.

Thin and lacking in detail, but overall the two chaps are a pleasant enough minor detour. Perhaps instead of aiming at Z grade sci-fi production values, they might aim for a B-movie level of guile..next time. Which there will be. No doubt. With or without the loud taller northern one.

I always look forward to the Top Gear Specials and what makes this cool is that it's a little different from previous offerings. It's still got everything that makes Top Gear a great show and is a worthy special. Enjoy!

Format: DVD
This is a really entertaining dvd and has a lot of the ingredients which make Top Gear a success. Except perhaps for Jeremy Clarkson. Some might say that makes a change.

There are some good ideas, from car movies, the only thing is they can't show the film clips in question for legal reasons. But a true car buff will know them anyway. I enjoyed this dvd and there are some sections which I may watch again. Such as the rally car race and the barrel roll sequence. Also I liked the invisible car.

All in all a good offering from May and Hammond.

Format: DVD
Bought this DVD during the Christmas holidays because I was bored and wanted a DVD to watch. Although the DVD doesn't have Jeremy Clarkson in it, it's very entertaining, and not just Richard and James driving expensive cars and seeing how fast they go round the track, it's much more exciting than that. The feature is approximately 75 minutes long and there are no boring bits. Would recommend this product to anyone ages 8+. The only reason why I didn't give this DVD 5 stars is because £7 is quite a lot for a DVD which is only 75 mins long.
