2 eXtreme DVD,
This review is from: WWF: Hardy Boyz - Leap Of Faith [DVD] [NTSC] (DVD)
Im no longer a massive Hardy Boyz fan, and at the time of buying this, I wasn't even remotely interested in them. However, I found this DVD going cheap, and when I saw the original tag-team ladder match from No Mercy '99, I had to own it.
The DVD is one of the WWF/E's better ones, because it covers quite a lot of the Hardy Boys careers, and a lot of thier childhood and life outside of wrestling, which many DVD's from the WWF fail to do. There is a good reaosn for that however, which is that the Hardys haven't been in the business as long as some others deserving of these feature presentations. There is no WCW/ECW footage that they are missing out on, although small, and I mean small, amounts of independent show footage is shown. The rings they use look like old sagging gym mats, its no wonder Matt and Jeff were willing to throw themselves around so much!
The main feature is, as I said, very well done, and you dont get the feeling youv'e missed out on something. We see around a bit of Jeffs home, and his wierd, model, alumnis, or whatever he calls them. They have to be seen really to know what im trying to talk about, as does Jeff's minature volcano in his front yard, which is part of a giant dirt track for motorbikes. Interviews with Lita and their dad, along with other WWF Superstars, all add to give an overall picture of what the two brothers are like, in and out of the ring. A good part of the DVD, which I enjoyed, was Matt and Jeff talking through some of thier more famous matches, pointing out stuff that you or I never spotted first time watching the match.
The extras are good, although I would have liked to have seen thier Tag Table match from Royal Rumble 2000, and the triangle ladder match from Wrestlemania 2000. But other than that, the extras are good. I must point out though, that the intergender 6-way tag match on the extras, was the match where Austin and HHH beat up Lita. Sorry if I spoilt that for you, but this match was heavily edited on its Sky broadcasting, so has never been seen in the UK before in full. Just thought I should point that out, as it is a good match, and it's nice to see its proper ending.
All we need now is an Edge and Christian DVD.
