Product Description

Product Description

FASTEST captures the thrilling, terrifying reality of MotoGP racing. From award-winning filmmaker Mark Neale (Faster, The Doctor, The Tornado and The Kentucky Kid) and with unprecedented access and never-before-seen footage, the film charts Valentino Rossi’s quest for his eighth premier class championship as he battles back from a horrific leg-shattering crash. Rossi takes on a wave of ferociously fast young riders and the emerging stars of the sport, including Jorge Lorenzo, Ben Spies, Dani Pedrosa, Marco Simoncelli and Casey Stoner. Loaded with almost an hour of extras, FASTEST explores the greatest feeling coupled with the greatest risk in MotoGP racing, asking the question every rider even the greatest of all time must face: Who’s fastest now?

This picks up where Mark Neale left us in "Faster", his panoramic story of the MotoGp era from 2001 to 2002. The film mainly focuses on the 2008 to 2010 seasons. Despite the cover, Rossi on the malevolent Ducati, the 2011 season is barley mentioned.

But what a story. This is motorcycle racing in its glory days. Most of the narrative is around Valentino Rossi, one of the greatest sportsmen of our time and unequivocally one of the best there has even been in the premier class. The basic story, his move to Yamaha, quick dispatch of Biaggi, Gibernau and up to 2010, of the new pretenders is expertly told through interviews with riders, the eloquent Michael Scott, ebullient Julian Ryder and the proto-Nietzschean philosophy of Dr Costa. Along the way, we get insights from the always effacing Colin Edwards, a surprisingly mature Jorge Lorenzo, taciturn Stoner and from the up and coming Marco Simoncelli, who's sadly premature death gives the film a very touching aura.

The action shots are stunning. We see bike control around switchbacks, chicanes, slide saves and we learn about the physics of 1000 tires, breaking at 1.6G and the dead on accuracy of Rossi at Lap 1 and Lap 25 in practice. The Mugello crash, which allowed the field to rearrange itself in Rossi's absence, is given the importance it deserves.

The movie is really Rossi but all the better for it. Neale is clearly impressed and delighted by the rider community but he makes no bones that the Rossi phenomenon is likely to be stopped by injury one day and he has caught it at its very best.

If you liked On Any Sunday, Dust to Glory, Faster, then this for you. If you need waking up after a slouch Christmas dinner, then this is a must...for all the family. Also some great bonuses, especially the Red Neck/Real physics section.

I don't follow competitive motorcycle racing and don't know much about it, but I thought Mark Neale's documentary "Fastest" might provide a good introduction. I watch a lot of documentaries about every conceivable topic, so I'm always interested to see how well something will translate to newbies on the subject. "Fastest," which covers the MotoGP World Championship, may be a bit daunting to someone who doesn't avidly follow the sport. At first, we're introduced to Valentino Rossi as he seeks an impressive 10th world title following a horrific accident. As the focal point of the film, Rossi certainly is an interesting character who is a true superstar and trendsetter in the field. But Neale's narrative never stays in one place for very long and instead of telling a straightforward account, it jumps back and forth through years of racing as the topics veer all over the place. It has so much information, it's almost exhausting to try to keep up (maybe that's why it's called Fastest)! Racing enthusiasts should love it, but the movie lacks some of the drama and tension that another approach might have given it.

That's not to say that I didn't like the movie, because I definitely did. It has a number of great elements. Ewan McGregor, a motorcycle man himself, makes a great narrator. The film is edited together with precision and the soundtrack is dynamic. And all of these things enhance the continuous racing footage. The camera work is provided from every angle imaginable from racetrack cameras to bike mounted units. It often feels as if you are directly involved in the action. There are more crashes than I could count and dozens of intensely close finishes. I loved the actual racing footage, and it made me intrigued to actually start following the sport a bit.

Great film. . . most recent in the available MotoGP documentaries. Good footage and behind the scenes. If you buy this, I recommend two additional purchases and watching "Faster", then "The Doctor, the Tornado, and the Ketucky Kid", and end your marathon with Fastest. As a Simoncelli fan devastated by his death in October 2011. . .this was a great film. It was early in his MotoGP career, so he is not in the film as much as I would have liked, but enough it brought a smile to my face and a tear to my eye for a fan who misses him!

This DVD content was just 'ok'. I've seen the other films, and this one does not do anything groundbreaking. Seemed to be more like a recap of the motoGP season if anything. Could have been better by doing more behind the scenes and bike prep etc... or even spending some time with the riders in their personal lives. I suppose if you're a diehard motogp fan, then this would be the next logical DVD to watch...

In full disclosure, I am a TT fan first and MotoGP second. That being said, Fastest is the best of the three films in this trilogy. The cinematography was phenomenal. The breadth of their coverage of the sport in recent times was very good. Interviews with riders and fans was quite good too. If you don't like Rossi, you won't like this film. Much of the film focuses on his accomplishment and his personality. I really liked the soundtrack as well. My brother-in-law, who has little to no interest in motorcycles was transfixed by the footage and stopped what he was doing and sat with me to watch most of this fine film.

The theme of this film concerns the level of perfection that is needed to win in this sport and the amount of danger that still exists. It focuses on the the amount of dedication that riders like Rossi, Lorenzo and Stoner have needed in order to succeed in the sport. The extra features are forgettable but the main event is good enough to give this five stars. If you love MotoGP, you must see this film. You will enjoy the footage even if you just have a casual interest in motorcycle racing.
