4.0 out of 5 stars 3D review. This packs a punch., November 25, 2012
By 
This review is from: Nitro Circus: The Movie [Blu-ray 3D / Blu-ray / DVD] (Blu-ray)
Nitro Circus takes a group of daredevils and shows what happens when you take stunts to the absolute limits. This is truly a heart pumping ride worth taking. You'll see tri-cycles jump ramps across buildings,huge car flips,insane dirt bike jumps,buses flying across the sky,wheel chairs attempting to go through loops,and the whole time the cast takes it as if it's just another day at the office. The whole films leads up to a finale which highlights the first live Nitro Circus show in Vegas.

The 3D here is a nice supplement. The material doesn't need it,but it certainly adds to the overall experience. The movie itself is quiet a knockout,but the 3D insures you stay down for the count.

Pros: The stunts are insane here. Without a doubt it's hard to believe no one has been seriously,life crippling injured attempting any of this. Some of it is pretty funny as well.

Cons: I felt at times they took too long in between shots to get the input of celebrities and sports figures alike. The stunts themselves sell the idea and I didn't need to be reassured of it. I felt the snippets of Channing Tatum's endorsements wore thin very quickly. I also believe the ending was somewhat anti climatic. The only other gripe I would mention is that at times I felt the film was too Jack-Ass esque in delivery.

On a final note I am a little shocked at the negative reviews this film received from critics. Early Hollywood inpart, was built on a foundation of talented individuals that put their lives on the line for a few moments of celluloid glory and we remember it in celebration,shock,and awe. Nitro Circus,in a way harks back to those glory days and it's a crying shame this film is not thought of in the same category by those who get paid to give their opinion. How can they so easily forget part of movie heritage?

I not only enjoy this film for the spectacle,but I respect the crew behind it. Good job guys (and ladies).
