5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal Blu-Ray Demo Film!, 29 Dec. 2013
This review is from: Red Bull: The Art Of Flight [Blu-ray] OFFICIAL UK VERSION (Blu-ray)
I first saw this movie months ago when I friend let me have an imported copy to watch, and he said I would be blown away - I was.

This movie is to snowboarding what Billabong Odyssey [DVD] or Riding Giants [DVD] [2005] is to surfing. The guys featured here look for the best/dangerous slopes in various location and get dropped off by helicopter. The mountain scenes and the stunts they perform are jaw-dropping at times, however that is only half the story. If you have a large screen TV, a decent Blu-ray player and a good surround system, then the audio-visual feast is something to behold. The rock/electronic soundtrack will certainly test out your audio system if you crank it up with bass that will rattle your pictures and windows in places, in fact if you want to demonstrate your system to any friends, then I can think of no better film!!

If you want to see guys at the top of their game taking an extreme sport to the extreme, then do buy this, sit back and be prepared to be amazed. I only wish I was young enough to take up snowboarding!

In some ways this movie reminded me of the (fictitious) surfing story Crystal Voyager [DVD] which came out in the early 70s and was about a couple of guys searching for the perfect wave. At the time it took surfing movies to another level, and I reckon this one does the same for riding snow.
