The cool camera angles put you right up to and right inside of the cars on Sunday. It's a 50-minute film with Kiefer Sutherland narrating. Great movie for the family. The list contains related movies ordered by similarity. Watched it three times so far and it just gets better. The whole movie was just great and I would tell any Nascar fan to buy it for the memories and the racing experience up close and personal. There was nothing new or exciting in it that he hadn't seen before.
Been for a long time. This groundbreaking film also goes behind the scenes to uncover the science, technology and teamwork that fuel America's most popular spectator sport. I especially like the recollection of the death of Dale Earnhart-We saw this as it happened and it still doesn't seem real to me. He loves this video and watches it frequently. It will help take the edge off during the off season. That's a lot to ask for but there it is. From early inception to close up and personal thoughts of todays drivers.
I thought the music was very appropriate for the scenes and the camera angles were quite impressive. Examples: in one scene a crash is shown from a distance, and they animate in a tire which detaches and flies straight for the camera. To get five stars I would have wished for much much more onboard footage and for cameras to be placed in strategic locations to open up the behind the scenes activities during the race. There are two features profiling drivers and showing close finishes from recent seasons, but these are both short and not terribly interesting. Plus it's really funny to see how young some of the drivers were back when this was filmed.
It's really interesting and well done. Also included are interviews with top racers, such as Winston Cup Champion Tony Stewart. Even Dale Jr looks like a young pup. The pit crews get proper treatment, too. Loaded with lots of tidbits of information I bet even the seasoned Nascar fan doesn't know.
Its a staged interpretation of racing. The matching attributes are highlighted in bold. It shows the history of nascar from the early days of racing on the beach to the tracks of today. The only complaint I have for this movie is that it's not very long, I believe it's only like 45 minutes long. I watch it having already been brought up to speed on the sport; I know nearly all the drivers, their sponsors, and their car numbers.
But they cram a lot of stuff into that 45 minutes. It goes into Nascar and shows so many aspects of the sport, the drivers, the pit crews, and people who go to the races. I also haven't tired of watching it. It puts you in the car for true action from the high speeds to the crashes without actually hurting you or your hearing. I really enjoyed the narration. Kanamori, a teacher of a 4th grade class, teaches his. Behind the scenes footage at this point is very good and the race scenes are also good.
Its sure to keep them entertained during football season while they await the flag to drop again. . The soundtrack is pretty awesome if you're really into this type of stuff. He definitely sounds like he's reading from the script that he doesn't exactly know where to put emotion or emphasis, but he gets the point across rather well. Having said that, I'm writing this review with complete objectivity now. Shop around and get a good price, and you'll be glad you bought this one.
My 3-year old son loves it, and asks to watch it at least twice a week. The overall effect of the movie is fine, but it lacks intensity- and the intensity it tries to create is usually phony. While Lonesome Dove director Simon Wincer captures the action including some amazing mid-pack and cockpit footage during actual races , Kiefer Sutherland narrates an informative survey of season-long activities, from car building and safety measures at Mooresville, North Carolina, to pit-crew practice, transportation logistics, constant danger and its effect on drivers' wives and families, and the aerodynamics of drafting. This is definitely worth a look if you like auto racing at all or just like action. Recommendation engine sorted out realistic, serious, exciting and rough films with plots about rivalry, ambition, contests and competitions, sport, athlete's life, athlete and trainer and power relations mostly in Sport, Drama and Action genres. . .
