Storyline

By vividly recounting the TT's legendary rivalries and the Isle of Man's unique road racing history, this 3D feature documentary will discover why modern TT riders still risk their lives to win the world's most dangerous race. The Isle of Man Tourist Trophy is the greatest motorcycle road race in the world, the ultimate challenge for rider and machine. It has always called for a commitment far beyond any other racing event, and many have made the ultimate sacrifice in their quest for victory. A story about freedom of choice, the strength of human spirit and the will to win. It's also an examination of what motivates those rare few, this elite band of brothers who risk everything to win. The vision of top commercials director Richard de Aragues, this promises to be one of the most thrilling films of 2011. Written by CinemaNX

Absolutely Brilliant - especially in 3D!
9 May 2011 | by (Nottingham, England) – See all my reviews

This is the first review I've written on IMDb and TT3D is definitely a worthy title!

I was unsure what to expect having recently seen I, Superbiker at the cinema which I felt was more like a season review of the BSB than a film.

TT3D however didn't disappoint - it really does capture the spirit and emotion of the Isle of Man TT. The on bike footage is amazing especially when watching it on cinema screen.

We paid the extra and went to see it in 3D which was well worth it, it really adds to the effect of the film.

The best bits for me were on the one liners by Guy Martin and the footage of the TT itself.

I'm looking forward to seeing what the director (Richard De Aragues) brings out next!
