From Amazon.co.uk

Every tribe has its legends, and Richard de Aragues' TT: Closer to the Edge--a year in the life of the Isle of Man’s notorious Tourist Trophy--is an extreme close-up of a mystically dangerous race, one that’s a magnet for motorcyclists with far more racing instincts than professional ambition. The film’s central character is Guy Martin--a young mechanic with Wolverine hair and the cadences of a death wish in his plain-speaking Yorkshire burr. It follows the tense build-up to the 2010 tournament, where Martin and his fellow riders will consciously stake their lives for the deep personal glories of TT success. The odds are ranged steeply against them--more than 230 riders have died along the course's 23 miles of rollercoaster dips and traction-busting corners--and TT: Closer to the Edge is as much a nail-biting survival story as it is a straightforward racing doc. Shown in 3D during its cinematic run, the film's lasting images are captured by bike-mounted cameras: the scenes of riders laying their bikes at impossible angles around corners--or straightening up to zip through the gap between a hedge and a stone wall--are a parade of near-misses. Composed interviews with grieving wives--and the personal philosophies of these brave riders--underline the questions of personal liberty at the fringes of the action. While the Tourist Trophy can only exist as long as the legal exemptions and laissez-faire government of the Isle of Man are in place, TT: Closer to the Edge will speak to your inner daredevil as an increasingly rare expression of our freedom to choose. --Leo Batchelor

A very good documentary film about the IOMTT, including Guy Martin, John Mac, Connor Cummins, Cam Donald, Mike Dunlop.
This film gives anyone who has never attended the TT races an insight into why people want to race at the most famous road circuit in the world.
Anyone who rides motorbikes or watches motorcycle racing can understand why, and where the guys are coming from with their attitude to racing there.
The film gives non bikers an insight into what it takes to race at the IOM, without actually having to go there.
The only way to really appreciate the TT races is to go there and watch it from the roadside, it would also give you a chance to get involved in the fantastic party atmosphere that goes on there during TT fortnight.
If this film inspires anyone to want go to the TT, my advice is go! you will love every minute!!! I did!!

Living on the Isle of Man i have grew up with the tt, and every year the place comes alive for two weeks when bikers from all over the world come to watch the greatest road races in the world.
This film sums up the tt perfectly and is very well made.
Guy martin is the main feature of it and is a bit of a character to say the least! The guys who made this film coudn't have picked a better year to film it as so much happens that no one could have predicted.
Even if you are not a fan of bikes or even motorsport, i would still say watch this film, you will not be dissapointed!

This is a must see, must own movie. I own several movies and documentaries on the TT races and my wife was a tad reluctant when we attended the opening night at the cinema, as she expected an update of the same old, same old. It says everything when I tell you, at her insistance, we returned to cinema next day, son (16yrs) in tow.... and he in turn went with friends the following day to see again !
Superbly shot and equally scripted. Enjoy.

I just wish more reviewers of the 3D movies would actually say what the 3D experience is like so that folk can judge whether it's worth the extra or not...so here goes...

The movie itself is excellent, especially if you're into bikes and not even racing or watching racing.

The 3D effects are mainly of the 'off bike' parts, which are good, however I was expecting (not unreasonably I think) that the actual bike racing parts would have more 3D, but sadly not.

Overall, I wish I'd just got the normal Blu Ray version of this movie.

I should start this review by saying that although I enjoy watching motor car racing (especially Formula 1), I've never followed motorbike racing and I don't ride a motorbike either. To be honest, they scare me half to death. And I came to this film having just seen the much-hyped Senna, which I enjoyed and admired, but wouldn't rate as a great film. I was fearing that it would be similarly over-hyped. But I couldn't be more wrong. This is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen and I would recommend it to everyone regardless of whether or not they like motor racing (of any type).

What makes this documentary so great is that it explores the human condition and, in particular, attempts to explain why these men risk their lives to win a race. And they certainly do risk their lives and they know they are risking their lives. The year of TT races that this documentary covers allows the filmmakers to explore the full range of experience. They do this by observing the participants and letting them talk. There is no attempt to force the analysis; instead, we see how these men are drawn into this obsessional pastime and it comes to define their lives. The film is quite extraordinary in the way you get behind the various characters and by the end you cannot help but admire their brave passion. The racing shots are pretty awesome as well. And if you don't know the story of that year's TT races, you will be drawn into a dramatic roller-coaster of emotion.

Only one aspect of the film disappointed me; the 3D. I wouldn't have minded if the whole film was in 3D or if none of it was (frankly I'd have preferred the whole thing in 2D so that I could concentrate on the characters).

Saw this at the cinema.It's a great insight to what drives people to compete in the TT and why they keep coming back year after year. Watch it and you'll be booking your ferry ticket to next years race. great film!

You need to buy this blu-ray even if you don't know much about the TT or motorcycle racing. These guys are just amazing, the will, determination and drive these guys have to do what they do is amazing. The isle of man TT is the ultimate race for man and machine where a mistake can cost you the ultimate. The racers are riding in excess of 190mph for 6 laps around a 37 3/4 mile lap on country roads and over a mountain averaging over 130mph on the way.

This is breathtaking viewing, not to be missed.

Cheers
Lee
