X-fighters/Extreme Games vs Jackass
on 29 November 2011
This DVD has the potential to entertain a diverse audience. Yes, it is Jackass-esque, but the difference is these guys are mostly extreme sports specialists. Mix Jackass with X-fighters and Extreme Games and you might get an idea of whats involved here. The main stars are Travis Pastrana (stunt performer who has won championships and X Games gold medals in several events, including supercross, motocross, freestyle motocross, and rally racing), Andy Bell (former freestyle motocross rider and racer), Jolene Van Vugt (first CMRC Women's Canadian Motocross National Champion, first female to backflip a full-sized dirt bike, holder of multiple Guinness World Records, and co-star of many motocross/stunt videos), Greg Powell (stuntman), Jim DeChamp (X-games competitor, professional downhill mountain bike racer and freestyle rider), Erik Roner (basejumper and skier), and Tommy Passemante (well, OK, Tommy isn't a sports specialist, he's a construction worker). Joined by various friends, they attempt all manner of crazy jumps and stunts - downhill racing tricycles, jumping lawnmowers, hydroplaning motorcycles, big wheel back flips, front flipping a motorcycle, attempting to flip monster trucks, the list goes on and on.
This DVD is a 2 disc set (not 1 as stated by Amazon), contains all episodes of Season 1 (12 Episodes) and has a running time of 283 minutes (nearly 5 hours!). There are also 25 minutes of bonus content. For the price this is a real steel!
