Fantastic action scenes tainted by cliched narration and bombastic music. All in all an exciting look at a crazy event. The footage included as an extra is excellent, including scenes from one motorcycle-mounted cameraman who breaks his hand Fantastic action scenes tainted by cliched narration and bombastic music.

It may in fact be difficult for someone who has never Off Roaded, Dirt Biked, or rode a 4 Wheeler to connect with this movie the way it was intended.

It may in fact be difficult for someone who has never Off Roaded, Dirt Biked, or rode a 4 Wheeler to connect with this movie the way it was intended. But if you have ever done any of these things, WOW, you are going to love it. They have captured the heart pounding struggle, including each small victory as well as defeats and relayed that to us. That three way fight between you, machine, and of course nature. It is a fight each person fights alone, inside them, but with the support of team mates and the competition as well. I couldn't help being emotional watching the action paired with the pounding soundtrack and excellent narration. Gripping! Expand

I did the '78 and '81 Baja 1000 and it brought a lot of memories back. It's about as well done as anything I can imagine. Capturing the true essence of that race on film is near impossible--but Dana did a helluva job!.
