I read in forums about this where it got completely slaughtered by the ADV riding community.
I also read that they even gave refunds to those that requested it at the screening.
Like a rubbernecker riding past the scene of a horrible accident I just had to see for myself what it was about.
What a mistake that was.
First of all the positive, and there is just one positive thing I can say about this:
There is some really epic drone footage in this but not by far enough to save it to something I would recommend watching.
The rest of it is basically a bunch of middle-aged to real oldtimer dudes filming themselves sitting around talking.
They're not even talking about motorcycles, it's all just quasi-philosophical bullshit.
And just when you just don't think it can possibly get any worse it gets evangelical.
I read a challenge somewhere to do a drinking game to this and take a shot every time anyone says the word story.
I can't see anyone surviving that as they say story 15 times in the first 5 minutes alone.
85 times in the total duration of the film. That's more than once a minute ffs!
(Yes, I counted, it wasn't like I had to concentrate very hard to keep up with the narrative because that was dead in the water from the first frame).
The most hilarious part of the film is when they shout out loud warnings to each other about a puddle with less than an inch of water, I'm no hardcore adventure rider myself but give me a break.
This isn't a motorcycle film, I don't really know what it is or what it is supposed to be other than something I'd recommend you'd stay as far away from as humanly possible.
A story worth watching it definitely isn't.
