Good, but not a great documentary
20 May 2018 | by dim_zaxSee all my reviews

This documentary, although only 93 minutes long (regarding real running time), seemed longer and dragged a lot at times.

The first part is suffering from the same sickness these newer documentaries suffer, by trying to pass new footage as old. Dressed with different frames and colours, these parts seem out of place in a high end product. Also, there was a rather disturbing part that, pretty much, was a Mercedes advertisement and didn't add anything to the story.

Then, there was the music. It was too loud most of the time and at parts it covered the commentary.

The sim racing part also added little to the film. I think they tried to make a reach for newer audiences, but the part seemed off of the rest of the film. Instead the more recent history of the track could be mentioned, with certain clips from fantastic wet races, in the dark, from a couple of years before.

On a more personal note, i didn't like the homage runs, because i find it sad that these cars are run at half their speed in order to honor the drivers that took them to their limits. More of the older footage from the actual events, would be appreciated, as the lovely tunes of Murray Walker's voice were.

Overall: 6/10
