    Probably the worst bit was it made some of the riding look like it was just hold on down a steep hill rather than impressive.

    ^^This! A couple of things were impressive, but over-all I was just terminally bored after 15mins. The good thing is that it made me want to get out and ride somewhere that didn’t look like a sand-pit.

    The “we think MTB is a developed sport”-argument is BS. Just look at how often someone tries to define XC, or a company announces a new must-have niche bike, and we all get in the same argument about what MTB ‘really is’ that then peters out when everyone gets bored and just decides to go ride a bike instead.

    ah, like the guy who was carving massive turns in the loose shale? just. holding. on. riiiight….

    you lot just sound dull! big mountain stuff has been done before, but this was next level stuff. they took you to places you’ve never seen or heard of before and rode their bikes down lines that no other humans have ever even previously considered. with a hell of a lot of style to boot. that was the concept of the film – pretty simple, what’s not to get?

    i’m sure if they wanted to make something with lots of fooling around (like Dudes of Hazard), or make a film purely about pushing the boundaries of massively complex new school bmx-style tricks they could have. and i’m pretty sure that all the riders and photographers of other films can appreciate the efforts taken to make WTTE rather than sitting at home thinking “my stuff is better than theirs”.

    great response from someone who’s only input to the discussion was “i agree with such & such’s negative review because being anti-cool is the new cool”

    At the end of the day (/jeremy kyle) it’s all bike riding, so it’s all good, I was getting a bit tired of all the ‘This breaks all the boundaries!’ nonsense about where the trail ends, but you’ve got to admit the riding is pretty bloody entertaining to watch, those guys have balls as big as mountains.

    Life Cycles was also pretty cringeworthy for the narration, but there are still some amazing scenes (transitions from season to season in the opening scene), it makes me confused why people on a mountain bike forum have to be completely negative about films which are good for the sport.
