My Review: This film documents the most beautiful snowboarding shots ever to be taken (in my opinion!).These professional snowboarders, with plenty of medals under their belt, travel together to ride incredible mountains. Dropped off at the tip by a RedBull helicopter (now we know where the funds for this project came from), the snowboarders ride incredible terrain making the impossible seem so easily possible. It’s not about the tricks, but more of pushing one’s potential to surpass their limits. I watched a Blu-Ray copy, and the clarity of the picture was phenomenal. It was just perfectly done with beautiful landscape shots and amazing tricks. It’s exactly what the title states, this is the art of flight. When the film is over, you get a sense of appreciation and inspiration.
With surreal cinematography, The Art of Flight gets 9/10 from me.
