Faster(2004)

Faster is the entry in Mark Neale terrific trilogy about the competitive world of motorcycle racing. Neale goes into the action, uncovers some of the sport's greatest racer, new and old and delivers a vivid, compelling and well made documentary. The sport of MotoGP is dangerous and we see the men who race these machines, who would risk it all to be the greatest in the sport. Faster looks at the passion of each man that wants to be the best. Although not as great as Fastest, I really enjoyed this one, however it lacked in terms of really going in the action, and that's something that Fastest did so well. Despite its flaws, this is an entertaining documentary that should deliver the thrills that Moto fans should be looking for. I enjoyed the footage of John Hopkins, and I really think he's a great rider. This is a fine film that overcomes its flaws, and despite its limitations, overcomes its limitations and delivers a memorable viewing experience that will surely entertain you from start to finish. Mark Neale goes into his subject with this film, and though it is not as fulfilling as Fastest, manages to be a film worth seeing and one that is worth seeing. Mark Neale is a great filmmaker and he proves that with this film, along with the subsequent sequels. There's plenty of excitement here and it is never dull, boring or tiresome. This is a must see documentary that delivers the thrills of the sport of Moto Gp, and it's only topped with the 2011 sequel, Fastest. This is documentary filmmaking at a whole new level.
