TT3D: Closer to the Edge (15)


By vividly recounting the TT's legendary rivalries and the Isle of Man's unique road racing history, this 3D feature documentary will discover why modern TT riders still risk their lives to win the world's most dangerous race. The Isle of Man Tourist Trophy is the greatest motorcycle road race in the world, the ultimate challenge for rider and machine. It has always called for a commitment far beyond any other racing event, and many have made the ultimate sacrifice in their quest for victory. A story about freedom of choice, the strength of human spirit and the will to win. It's also an examination of what motivates those rare few, this elite band of brothers who risk everything to win. The vision of top commercials director Richard de Aragues, this promises to be one of the most thrilling films of 2011.

The critical consensus

Rev up those whiteknuckle thrillride clichés, you're going to need them.

****(*)Phil de Semlyen, Empire Online, 18/04/2011

Not just for the petrol heads, TT3D is a life-affirming joy ride for anyone with a heartbeat.

****(*)Ellen E Jones, Total Film, 19/04/2011

Almost innocent in his obsessiveness, he's like a swaggering cousin of Karl Pilkington, and by the time of the big race day you may be surprised to find yourself rooting for him.

Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 22/04/2011

The colourful characters and human drama keep things interesting and engaging from start to finish.

James Goodyer, Little White Lies, 21/04/2011

It's a saturnalia of excitement, saturated with thrills and a sense of danger that is almost spiritual.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 21/04/2011

For the most part this is an entertaining look at a dangerous and exciting sport done for love and personal satisfaction rather than fame and fortune.

***(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 23/04/2011

The speeds on such narrow, winding public roads are hair-raising and superbly photographed, the crashes spectacular and the riders far more likable than anyone involved in Formula One.

Philip French, The Observer, 24/04/2011

Get on your bike and see it.

****(*)James O'Brien, Daily Mail, 22/04/2011
