The scenery of this blu-ray is as gorgeously shot as what I expected. What I didn't expect was the overall sense of harmony with sport and nature that each extreme athlete experiences. This beautiful film has a very hypnotic effect and left me wanting more. (approx. 45 min. total - chapter headings: Tow-in Surfing, Giant Waves, Mountain Climbing, Skiing, Snowboarding, Man and the Mountain, Windsurfing, Adrenaline Rush, Rock Climbing, Nature as Art.) The Making Of is just as interesting, but again, runs a little short at approx. 22min. I can really watch this again and again, so highly recommended for fans of extreme sports or great blu-ray scenery etc.

excessive, constant dance tune sound track totally removes from the incredible scenic beauty, and cannot turn down volume unless you don't care about narration -- mediocre shooting of sports action, the best of which is the skiing and the worst of which is the surfing: all but skiing looks like a bunch of edit-room floor scraps -- in essence, as one experienced with some of the sports illustrated, this flik doesn't really bring you into the vibe of the moment, and nor does it bring you into the moments of gazing out onto the incredible vistas that i am sure the sport-actors were awed by
