Movie Info

Narrated by Liam Neeson, this film is the heartbreaking and adrenaline-fuelled tale of a family who have dominated road racing for over thirty years. A sport in which men compete at speeds of up to 200 miles per hour on closed country roads. Roads that on any other day service cars, buses, tractors. Roads that are lined with trees, telegraph posts and stone walls. Unforgiving obstacles when struck by the human body. It is a sport that has claimed many lives over the years - and continues to do so to this day. Ireland and the Isle of Man are two of the few places in the world where the sport still survives. Robert and Joey Dunlop, quiet men from a rural village in Northern Ireland - but racers who risked everything to win. And Robert's sons, William and Michael. Two of the world's leading road racers today. Young men determined to continue a family tradition. Featuring stunning action, candid race day scenes and a gripping narrative, this film is the story of two generations of one family that have been united by success. And united by tragedy.

  • The tragedies and triumphs of the Dunlop dynasty will be well known to fans, so this retelling will have most impact on newcomers to their remarkable story.

  • Is road racing supposed to look this dysfunctional? I don't know. Well - an arresting story.

  • The adrenaline-fuelled view from bike cameras descends into crash-porn waiting to happen, as the film luxuriates in its own grief.

    Sep 23, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Featuring a rich brown voiceover by Liam Neeson and sickening on-bike footage, Road tells terrible, exciting, tragic stories that fairly rattle the spine.

    Jun 18, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Slathered in portentous narration by Liam Neeson and a ludicrously over-cranked and incessant score, both of which conspire to undercut, rather than enhance, the overall impact.

    Jun 15, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A fascinating insight into road racing's first family.
