The Art of Flight 3D Reviews
Art of Flight is about a group of snowboarders, including pro Travis Rice, who travel the world to unique locations looking for the perfect places to try new outrageous tricks
Art of Flight had a very original plot. In the movie, they travel to places like Alaska, Chile, and Canada. They travel to Alaska first and can't go boarding right away because the weather isn't snowboarding weather. So to keep from getting bored, they do activities like shooting guns, throwing axes, and making a bonfire. Then the next day they go down the mountains there and do some crazy tricks. They then travel to Chile so the can "follow winter". While there they do insane tricks on some of the steepest slopes. After that they go to Canada and find out that there are a lot of avalanches occurring there. They go to the top of the mountain and are about to go down when a bunch of fog forms and they can't see t a thing so they end up getting stuck. Throughout the movie they show them all doing some super cool end crazy tricks.
I think the theme of this movie is adventure is what you make it. I think this because they somewhat say it throughout and by watching the movie, that is what I got from it. This documentary also had a lot of b-roll along with plenty of interviews.
This documentary had some of the most unique camera angles and editing I have ever seen. They had angles with helmet cams, cameras from helicopters, and hand held filming. They also included very engaging music and a lot of slow motion that made the watcher really interested in the movie.
Many people think that documentaries are very boring but this was one of the coolest movies I have ever seen. I really encourage any one who likes snowboarding or even extreme sports to watch this. Anyone who watches it will really enjoy it I believe.

Also after watching the behind the scenes, I wish they had scraped a few of the storyline and went to Europe for some shredding.
