Editorial Reviews

EXTREME is a visually stunning 45-minute journey into the soul of adventure featuring a cast of world champion athletes. Combining incredible extreme sport action with narration from the athletes and an eclectic, contemporary soundtrack, EXTREME explores the paradox of human nature: facing fear from the edge of life. The film takes viewers to the edge of outdoor adventure sports like never before; skiing and snowboarding perilous untouched mountain peaks; climbing vertical frozen waterfalls and red-rock spires; surfing some of the largest waves ever surfed and windsurfing gale force winds. This mesmerizing film is now available for the first time on DVD and in spectacular Blu-ray high definition.

I saw this film six times when it played in IMAX theaters about seven years ago, often taking friends who had not seen it. Since then I have been annually pestering the people at Extreme as to when a DVD might be available. This year's email turned up gold; it's out!

I think this film is utterly extraordinary. To me it's actually a serene meditation on art, beauty, elegance, and the human spirit. I'd been hoping for a DVD release because I periodically felt a need for an Extreme "fix"; and it simply has not been available at regional IMAX theaters anymore. I would love to see it occasionally when I need reassurance as to what is worthwhile in the human spirit!

The previously released soundtrack is also one of my favorite albums. And the pairing of that music to the film is unbelievably inspired, For example, Morsheeba's "The Sea" is played during a snow/mountain episode, not during the surfing -- and it works so PERFECTLY! Whoever coordinated the soundtrack is a genius imho! It's right up there with "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" and just a handful of other movies as having perfect soundtracks (again: imho!). Along these lines, when the film was showing at our local IMAX theater, a reviewer wrote a basically good review -- except that he criticized the soundtrack. He said the music should have been more driving -- hard metal or some such. I just shook my head and wondered at how he could so totally and utterly miss the point of "Extreme." I guess he thought it should have been some kind of testosterone fest with pounding music to drive home the point. I'll stick with my assessment of the film as a meditation!

This looked a lot more interesting than it is. This is an extremely short movie with very little substance to it. It looked all right on a 52" Samsung but for some reason the picture was very small.

Very glad I bought it on a Lightning Deal or I would have been that much more disappointed.

Great photography, fascinating film but rather short. Looked fantastic on a 63" Samsung plasma. Scenes of windsurfers were really awesome.

I recently upgraded to a blu-ray player and then the decision was what would be the first discs that I would want to be the start of the new library. This movie was one of the first things that came to my mind because the photography and action is truly amazing. Something I will definitely watch many times. If you love the outdoors and incredible settings, buy this disc!

I bought "Extreme blu-ray" to see full HD details and for the excitement of watching giant wave surfing. I am fully satisfied for both. This is a nice work, especially when you consider how hard the filming these scenes are. But the results are amazing.
I agree that the main feature could have been longer. I still rate this work 5 stars.

This needed way more intense scenes throughout. It was OK, but we were thinking it would be non-stop exhilaration. More of the surfing and some intense skydiving and such. Wife said, "you spent how much on that?" Enough said, sorry.
