Plot
Every year the world's top bikers assemble on the Isle of Man to race for the prestigious title 'King of the Mountain'. Among them, as this documentary records, is maverick Midlander Guy Martin who arrives determined to overhaul reigning champion John McGuinness...


Review
TT3D: Closer to the Edge
Browse more images »
Billed as the world’s first 3D sports movie, that third dimension is really just window dressing on a motorbiking doc that’d be exhilarating in only two. The Isle Of Man TT is pure cinema — an insane blur of leather and machines that claims several lives every year — and director Richard De Aragues shows the bikers in their fearless element. Local boy Conor Cummins, remorseless champion John McGuinness and softly spoken newbie Ian Hutchinson all vie to become ‘King Of The Mountain’, but it’s the Wolverine-chopped maverick Guy Martin who’s the star of the show. As the bikers career through tiny villages at 200mph, there’s so little margin for error they may as well be podracing through Emmerdale. It all makes for a motorsports movie you don’t need to be a petrolhead to enjoy.


Verdict
Rev up those whiteknuckle thrillride clichés, you're going to need them.
