When I took my wife to see this movie, I was excited to see what looked like an exciting movie about motorcycles racing through Baja. She was excited about an evening together, and thought she'd suffer through the movie for the sake of the relationship.

Turns out, she enjoyed it as much as me! This isn't just a movie about gearheads driving through the desert, it's the story of the hundreds of people and families involved in the race, how it affects them, the challenges they face, and overcoming obstacles. You'll laugh with the racers as they joke around, hide sniffles as Malcom works with the orphans, share frustration with The Weatherman, and white-knuckle whatever's handy as the trucks and bikes race through crowds of people or along the cliffs, and get entirely caught up in the intensity of the race action across the beautifully dangerous Baja landscape.

This movie documents the triumph of the human spirit in the harshest of conditions. Definitely worth seeing, many times.

For those of us who've ridden Baja this is a reminder of why we do so. For those who haven't this is just the thing to show you why you should. High speed action, adventure, guts, and glory all wrapped up in one great movie. Dana is rapidly approaching the skill level of his father and his movies are having just as much impact as On Any Sunday and Endless Summer. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who loves riding, racing and the desert! Two thumbs up!

I did enjoy this film, however it was a little too much "MTV" stylee footage for my tastes--you know, where they cut every 2-3 seconds to convey "maximum action". The Baja 1000 needs NO enhancement!! What I wanted to see was more SUSTAINED footage of the vehicles in action. Yes, there is some of that, but not enough. Just like concert videos and other sports footage, WE WANT TO SEE THE ACTION!!! that means NOT cutting back and forth like a mainiac, hey, this is just because I care man.

I originally got the DVD because of the Robby Gordon factor. I was blown away by the much bigger story of the race, Baja and all the competitors, particularly motorcycle riders Mike "Mouse" McCoy & J.N. Roberts.

McCoy is, by far, the most compelling and touching story. The original idea man behind the film, he convinced Dana Brown & Scott Waugh that the Baja 1000 was worthy of documentation. To add to the fun, Mouse decided to drive the 1000 mile race solo, a hard enough task for a driver with four-wheels and a roll cage, nearly impossible for a motorcyclist.

Roberts was the winner of the first Baja 1000 in 1967, as a co-driver with Malcolm Smith. His drive to finish the 2003 race, just weeks after picking up his first social security check, is both irrestible and funny.

Whether you are an off-road fan, a racing fan, a Robby Gordon fan or none of the above, if you have a heart, you will enjoy this movie, these people and their stories.

Being a 10 year MX veteran from back in the late 70's and early 80's, I thought I knew something about Baja. I was wrong, this is an amazing race beautifully filmed.

I played the video for a group of friends one day over dinner, none of whom are involved in off-road sports and all were transfixed to the very end. My wife, who absolutely hates motorcycles, nonetheless talked about this video non-stop on the long drive home after watching it with our friends. For the first time EVER, I think maybe, just maybe, my wife found a spark of interest in off-road racing.

Dust to Glory is a fantastic view into one of last great races of our time. It covers everything from the racers and their support teams, to even the fans. See the famous faces, and the not-so-famous faces. This movies has all the stories, all the action, and tons of in-car/on-bike footage. It was awesome.

If you love the Baja, this is the video to get!

I thought this was a very good documentary for people that are into racing, motorcycles and off road enduro racing. I am not sure that somebody who isn't into those things would like it but I found it quite compelling and entertaining. For all you gear heads, bikers, and racing fans check it out I think you'll like it very much.

Oh and by the way it says that this stars Steve McQueen. Steve McQueen and James Garner appear for all of 2 seconds in this when they show people who have been in this race in the past.

I must say when my husband asked me to watch this DVD, I agreed only out of minimal interest. I have been to San Felipe several times and have been there on Race Day for the BAJA 250. Although I have enjoyed being there in person, I did not think I would like to watch a whole DVD on the subject. Boy was I mistaken.

Watching this DVD was like taking my first buggy ride! I smiled the entire way through (but no sand in my teeth :) It was very interesting and fast paced. I am now much more of a fan of this sport and cannot wait to go down to BAJA again to watch and be a part of this wonderful race.

I HIGHLY recommend buying this DVD and watching over and over. Our 12 year old son loved it as well!!!!!!!
