This movie has breathtaking cinematography, presents amazing camera angles and intense vivid slow motion action in the most remote locations in the world. It's really unreal some of the stuff in "Art of Flight", it takes nature and snowboarding and combines them into something magical.

A stunning beautiful film that truly is a sonic & visual feast but does get a tad repetitive as it goes on.

Filmed in some of earths most amazing snow peaks & captures the beauty or their sport & the landscape they are in.

If this film was short it may have worked by 80 mins you have had enough. The soundtrack is sensational though & you can't ignore the unforgettable camera shots.

I didn't watch the 3D version. I watched the 2D version (that's now in Super HD on Netflix!), but it's so crisp. Yeah, I'm jealous these guys get to fly in private planes and choppers to some of the coolest locales around the world, but in doing so there are some awesome ariel shots of some breathtaking terrain. The typical editing of the jump sequences (slow-mo at lift-off, slow even more when they tweak the grab) gets a little old, but the gorgeous scenery and the crazy skill of the riders makes up for it. Oh, and it has a pretty sick soundtrack. Not sure if it's coincidence or what, but there's a little overlap in the song selection between The Art of Flight and the latest SSX release.

Enjoyed the cinematography and soundtrack particularly. It was like watching an Attenborough documentary of snowboarding, helicopters and mountains!

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

Plot Summary

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.

Documentary Elements

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.

Technical Elements

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.

Film is more a story of the life of a professional snowboarder, with an unlimited budget, than it is about snowboarding. The images from the film are breath taking and you can tell a lot of thought went to getting them made. However the film gets a bit repetitive.

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