Product Description

Clarkson: Heaven and Hell (DVD)

British personality Jeremy Clarkson, host of Top Gear, brings you Heaven and Hell, a critical review of the best and worst cars in the automotive world. Clarkson trawls the whole of "car-dom" to bring you seven great cars and truffles the undergrowth looking for seven automotive disasters. The good ones - the Ferraris, the Porsches and the Aston Martins - are driven to within an inch of their lives on the track. The bad ones are killed. Sawn in half. Hung, drawn and quartered. They're hammered and blown to pieces with dynamite and their skeletons left in the open to rot. There's even some time for a game of car jousting.

If the mere mention of Porsches, Ferraris, and Maseratis is enough to get your heart racing, you'll want to take Heaven and Hell out for a spin. Jeremy Clarkson, host of the International Emmy award-winning British series Top Gear, puts you in the driver's seat of the sports cars of your dreams (and other ill-fated vehicles of your worst nightmares). You only have to be a fan of vintage James Bond films to get a rush from the tire-smoking test drive of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage. Clarkson is authoritative and funny, and his enthusiasm is contagious. But woe to "the unimaginative junk built with no soul, flair or passion." "Seven deadly sinners" are dispatched to "hell" in creative ways. Clarkson purchases a Perodua, drives it across the street from the dealer, and then pummels it with a sledgehammer. He stages a jousting match between the "hateful" TR7 and a Ford Scorpio, A Citron gets the Monty Python treatment when a dumpster is dropped atop it. The test drives around the track can get repetitive, but considering that this is the closest many of us will ever get to a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti or a Porsche 911, just strap yourself in, sit back, and enjoy the ride. --Donald Liebenson

For a devoted fan of Top Gear this DVD is a nice filler for the time between episodes. However, watching this DVD reminds me of just how great the show is. This DVD is a good time but I really found myself missing Hammond and May and all of the other elements (the news, the star in the reasonably priced car, the cool wall, etc.) that keep an episode of Top Gear moving and visually interesting. This DVD is mostly Clarkson doing powerslides in really nice cars, punctuated by the occasional bad deed done to an even worse car. And while this is fun, it gets a little monotonous. Its hard to watch it all in one sitting and its even harder to watch it more than once. The production quality is very good, even if in a few places the background music is little cheesy. Most importantly however, Jeremy Clarkson is at his impish, opinionated, gregarious, obnoxious best, and that is what makes this DVD worthwhile.

really a good thing to watch, especially if you are a petrol head; awesome cars and great reviews and info with Jeremy's usual witty manner; glad to see the Stig doing his thing and loved the destruction of the useless things on four wheels; just missed the Hamster and Capt Slow giving Clarkson his much needed ribbing

This is a fun little video, sadly only going for one hour. However, it is very amusing to say the least. Even though the majority of his cars that he considers will go to heaven are cars the majority of people will not be able to afford, you still get a video his thrashing em about. Giving you dreams of you doing that to them. I do recommend this video, its entertaining Jeremy Clarkson style.

As a long time Clarkson fan I was looking forward to sitting down and spending some time with this DVD but I was sadly disappointed.

Part of the problem is that with the advent of production cars such as the Veyron and Koenigsegg, the "Heaven" cars on this agenda are just not as impressive as they would have been when the show was first produced. Top speeds of 170 and 180 are just plain "meh" when - with a fat wallet - one can have a car with over 1000bhp, reaches 60mph in under 3 seconds and tops 250 on the open road. Since Clarkson is demonstrating cars he approves of, and all are similar performance cars, the "Heaven" sequences become formulaic and, dare I say it, even slightly boring.

The "Hell" segments are shorter and for the most part there is limited valid explanation as to why they are so bad; one gets the impression they are simply cars that Clarkson himself doesn't like. More than anything, they seem to be segues into the next "Heaven" sequence, rather like the articles about subjects like geography and airplanes which appear in porn magazines. Most of the highlights are in the "Hell" chapters such as the jousting tournament between the TR& and the Ford Scorpio, which deserves to be a staple event at demolition derbies worldwide, and the explosive demolition of the nasty little Kelisa.

Personally I would enjoy seeing Clarkson doing an entire show on terrible cars, why they are terrible, and creative and terrible ways to destroy them. "Heaven and Hell" is worth a watch but doesn't stand up to repeated viewing, unless you are a performance car marque junkie.

On this DVD that runs a bit over an hour (74 minutes or so) we get British motoring journalist Jeremy Clarkson using his usual hyperbole and hypercritical idiom to discuss a whole slew of very expensive and unobtainable cars as well as some cars he reserves a special hatred for.

All up it is entertaining in a sort of charmingly mindless fashion as he rips apart (literally) his pet hates and spends in inordinate amount of time in boyish enjoyment of blazing about a race track in yet another car the rest of us will only ever get to admire in a showroom. It's actually the latter that gets tedious first with Clarkson but those familiar with the Top Gear franchise of which he is the major cog will know exactly what they are getting by throwing this into their shopping cart.

Highly recommended for those who enjoy Top Gear (though this lacks the interplay and so is not up to the fun fact of that series) and it comes with some extra features such as a photo gallery so you can drool a little further over the latest microscopically updated variant of some Ferrari or Lamborghini.

I was hoping for a little more in every way, don't get me wrong it's entertaining in a very Jeremy Clarkson's way, DON'T expect a 1 man Top Gear DVD because that's not what you'll be buying, he'll test drive some cars, wreck some others but that's pretty much it, this videos is only recommended for big fans like myself otherwise you might find it boring (just ask my girlfriend).

Nope this isn't as good as Top Gear, but it does feature some superb cars, as well as the rubbish.

FYI the cars are:
Maserati Quattroporte
Renault Espace
Aston Martin DB9 Volante, Aston Martin V8 Vantage
Range Rover Sport
Triumph TR7
Ford Scorpio
Perodua Kelisa
BMW M5
Ferrari F340, Ferrari Enzo, Ferrari 612 Scaglietti
VW Golf GTI
Citroen 2CV
Chevrolet Corvette
TVR Sagaris
Vauxhall Monaro

As some previous reviewers have already said, in places it is funny, but it lacks the spark that Clarkson has when he's working with Hammond and May. He may be the star, and the best thing about Top Gear, but he is not as good without Hammond and May.

Fortunately for me I picked this up very cheap. If I'd paid the normal price for this it would only have got 3 stars from me.
