"You will be closer to the edge of your seat."

This review is of the double DVD TT Closer to the Edge.I paid £10.99 for it on amazon including postage. It has the main film on the first disc and the second disc contains an additional film called Charge about the electric TT and is narrated by Ewan McGregor. Charge alone i have seen for sale for more that the price of this double DVD so its a bargain. There are several more extras on the second disc including interviews with many of the racers such as Guy Martin.
Getting back to the main disc the film is a documentary of the preperation and participating in the Isle of Man TT.
It mainly focuses on Guy Martin who is also known for his participation in the Boat that Guy Built, the documnetary on the BBC about Guy Martin and his mate building a narrow boat. Another facinating program if you are a Guy Martin fan. Other featured racers are Ian Hutchinson, John McGuinness and Conor Cummins.
TT Closer to the Edge was originally shown at the cinema in 3D but this 2D version is just as good and captures all the atmosphere of actually being at the TT.
The film last 104 minutes and is rated 15 due to some strong language as passions get high.
All the reviews by the top papers h\ve given it top marks of 4 stars and i quite agree
The extras make it an even better buy. Motorcycle News gives it a 5 star rating though.
This DVD is a must for anyone interested in motorcycle racing as you get to see behind the scenes of several race teams.
It is a great film, unfortuantly I missed it at the cinema when it was being shown in 3D.
Im my opinion it is worth the money for the bonus features alone. it does have some sad moments in it as the TT is such a dangerous race. I will leave it to you to watch to see who won each race and where Guy Martin finished.
