4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie, 3D effects average
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Wrong focus
Good Film and well put together, gave it 3stars as it concentrates too much on Guy Martin. Watching the coverage this year and listening to Craig Doyle it was if there was only Guy out there racing, no disrespect to Guy but typical TV. Buying the film showed similar concentration on 'celebrity', worth a lokk but there's others racing out there.lol

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Movie - not a 3D showcase though, 25 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TT3D: Closer to the Edge (Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + DVD) (Blu-ray)
I knew nothing about the TT, so this was something of a revelation. There's something re-affirming on the human condition in it, that such characterful, passionate, talented amateurs compete with such utter commitment - in an event which shows continued strength without undue commercial intervention. The film makes it obvious that the driving force behind the TT is the riders and the fans.

On the other hand - it's not worth buying the 3D version. So little of the race footage was filmed for the documentary, most of its from the bike-cam's or stock event coverage from helicopters - which of course were not filmed with 3D cameras. This means that nearly all the true 3D footage is just interviews - which is nice to see in 3D, and to be fair the interviews are the highlight of this movie rather than the racing itself. It's all about the intense and hugely contrasting characters that risk their lives to win - and their anticipation of and reaction to the inevitable casualties.

So a great film, an intimate character study of fascinating people - all so different - but united by a compulsion to compete in an often fatal race.

It's just a bit pointless in 3D.

5.0 out of 5 stars A decent Road Racing film - About time!, 6 Jan. 2012
Being a total bike nut who attends as many local track and road races as can be squeezed in every year, Closer to the Edge was a no brainer for a christmas pressie from the missus.
Thoroughly enjoyed the movie from end to end, and immediately watched it again. Very well made, except it seemed a little too short, but that is probably because I could watch bike racing for hours!

I liked that it focused on one racer, Guy Martin, which gave the film a solid thread and avoided it becoming just another TT review film. Other reviewers are correct. You see this movie and you find youself surfing the net for tickets to nexts year's TT (Grandstand already sold out for the big races - Pah!)
Another enjoyable aspect of the film was the contrast between the slightly eccentric maverick Guy Martin and the understated calm professionalism of Ian Hutchinson.I found myself almost cheering for Guy Martin just because of his sheer heart and determination, and could almost feel his frustration as he was repeatedly pipped by Hutchinson.

An excellent movie. It's all in there; breathtaking speed, a sense of occasion, carnival atmosphere of the TT, the tradition of the TT. An insight into the RR sport and the colourful characters that populate it. Triumph, failure, tradgedy, humour. Good, gritty entertainment. Should be more films like this one.

A must see, definitely.
