Time is either spent wisely, or it is just spent. Second after second; moment after moment, they’re all there for the taking. Return to Earth is a cinematic journey into the simple act of living completely in those moments by riding bikes.
If you like mountain biking, do yourself a favor and watch some excellent free content from 50:01 or the British Pie series. If you want to see amazing nature camera work, watch Blue Planet or Planet Earth. This video unsuccessfully tries to blend both into a mess of slow motion and cheesy narration. There's 5 minutes of good riding in this video, 4 minutes of which is available for free (Brett Rheeders part), and the rest is filler.
Those bagging on this movie are probably 16 and bitter they dropped paper delivery money on an "old persons" soundtrack! LOL!! Great riding, wonderful "grab life while you can" theme throughout with a KILLER "old-school" soundtrack (come on, Beach Boys, the Who, Five Man Electrical Band, Steppenwolf, Free Ride by Edgar Winter Group- WHAAAAT?!?!?!!) Those kids shredding in Whistler at age 12 make you feel super young and bring a smile to your face as you think about your kids and (maybe for some) GRANDKIDS! This is a great heritage, pass-it-on, wise earth stewardship (but super NOT over-the-top agenda pushy), mountain bike culture building movie- I only wish it was an hour longer- I'd add another star to make it a six star!! Thanks ANTFilms!
I'm with pstrcork, 100%. THIS VID ROCKS! Sound track was killer, really good cinematography, and awesome content. I think to dis this flick you'd have to have a basic, under developed world view. It's worth at least one watch if not many!
This video has some amazing riding and footage but the story/arrangement of video is not good. I'm not sure what they were really try to do with this film but I wish they would have made it more about the amazing riding of Brett Rheeder!
