4.0 out of 5 stars Flawed, but very watchable, April 8, 2004
This review is from: On Any Sunday 30th Anniversary Collection (DVD)
This is a difficult set of father/son directed films to rate. On Any Sunday gets 5 stars; the all time classic, perhaps best motorcycle film ever although I would consider The Road Racers a contender. The seriousness of the sport is not ignored, but Bruce Brown's sense of humor always shines through. And the music is so perfect that I sometimes hear it in my head while riding my motorcycles. OAS is only 1 year younger than me, yet it does not feel particularly dated; it really is timeless. While I enjoyed the other films, and in particular the present day interviews with the OAS riders in OAS Revisited, they really pale in comparison to the original. Like an earlier reviewer, I feel Dana Brown got a free pass from his dad to make the sequels. They lack the humor, pacing, and with the exceptions of the old deleted scenes, cinematography of the original. I love the original so much that I like the sequals more than I should. Still, it is worth the price of admission just to see Malcolm Smith and Mert Lawill 30 years later, and hear them tell their own stories in their own words. If only Dana Brown had the talent of his father, this would be an absolutely brilliant set. As is, I am still glad to have bought the set and passed on my original On Any Sunday DVD to a seriously ill old flat track rider, who I hope gets some joy from it.
