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!

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

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.

I love surfing and water sports , I grew up on the beach as a kid living in Sydney Australia . This movie was awesome from big wave surfing to windsurfing , it just blew me away . Climbing frozen waterfalls to rock climbing . I can appreciate how dangerous it is for those men and women athletes on how they challenge mother nature and to be on top of their game because you wont get a second chance if your not
.I was interested in how they filmed in Imax and to all camera men/ women and people associated with shooting documentaries, I give five stars

Great IMAX movie for fans of the genre!

I waited for YEARS after seeing this for the first time (and multiple times thereafter)! Contacted the makers of it and finally received word that this was out on Blu Ray.

Viewing on a 120" projection screen with 1080p projector and great sound system.....WOW!!!! Clarity, sound, cinematography are terrific!

This is a MUST have for any IMAX fans or folks desiring to show off BIG SCREEN capabilities!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Biggest waves I've seen other than some of the tow-in surfing that Laird has done at various places across the globe. The climbing scenes are also great. Totally enjoyed watching this and totally amazed at the size of the waves at Waimea Bay - I think 1999. Great diversion from the pain as I'm riding my bike on the trainer in front of the TV.
Buy it! You will never regret it. I think I've shown it at least five times during the first week I had it.
