    The photography alone would make this a worthwhile effort, but the drama that unfolds over the two years on tour is equally involving and framed by the interviews with former champions.

    An often thrilling, always compelling intro to the sport.
  3. 70
    An awesome introduction to the sport and the outspoken personalities -- riders, mechanics, engineers, lorry drivers, commentators, fans and girlfriends -- who support it.
  4. Those craving more visceral kicks will be gratified by the endless crash sequences, but despite the perverse thrill of seeing guys fly off their motorcycles at 150 miles per hour, the crack-ups wear thin after the first hour.
  5. 50
    The straight dope for speed junkies and fans of the art of flinging one’s well-padded frame through the contortions enabled only by disastrously catapulting oneself off a slippery asphalt track at speeds even Dale Earnhardt would have dismissed as lunacy.

    In the end, promotion, as good as it may be, doesn't make for a real documentary. Faster is a kind of bone-crushing fun, but there's little drama and certainly no insight.
  7. A loud, choppily edited and surprisingly unengaging portrait of speed demons.

    OK, I am from DC and a lot of people hate the Post's movie critic, myself included. He hates on everything because I guess he's OK, I am from DC and a lot of people hate the Post's movie critic, myself included. He hates on everything because I guess he's jealous he doesn't work for the NY Times. I had no idea what moto GP was like before the film but I thought this was one of the best documentaries I've seen in a couple of years. I was completely blown away and VERY engaged with the characters. the DVD is GREAT over 4+ hours of extras on two discs, basically it's two movies and extras. Highly recommended! Expand
