Now this is a video! It's enjoying to watch. Edd Allen knows what it takes to make a good video and he pulled out all stops to make it happen in this Seventies production. The intro is beautiful. It must look insane on a big screen in a cinema but I only had the pleasure to watch it on TV. The Seventies crew distributes a lot of brands and they sponsor a lot of riders. This gave them a lot of choice to get footage together for Number Ten.
Stand outs in my eyes were the Caleb Kilby part (big rails and gaps), the Robin Fenlon part (you never know what he pulls out of his ass, original view on spots for sure) and the Nick Vale part (not afraid to do crazy stuff). It looks like Edd Allen went out of his way to make this a good flick. There's more to it than just clean filming with trick after trick editing. The intro to his own part is magnificant and Dan Price's intro is hilarious. It was good to see Boyley come back to Hastings to film his part before he left again (RIP Boyley). I personally enjoyed seeing "The Fids" (Fiets) do a nothing on dirt and how can a Sebastian Keep part ever disappoint? There's 10 more guys with sections as well as extra features on the Boyley Jams (03/04), the Mad Scotsman (Amos wants to do that fucking rail!), the Seventies warehouse (what a place) and a slam section that shows you what the riders have to go through to film their part.
If we would still give out stars to videos at FATBMX, this would at least have a rating of 4 out of 5 stars. Maybe if someone could fill us in on the Hidden Extras on this DVD (there are three listed) it would make it to a full 5 star production.
