So, how do I like it?
I really like the fact that it doesn't feel like you've seen it before. It feels new and fresh. These guys aren't mutants like Sharma or Ondra, operating on a super human level, but simply really good climbers. I think this makes it easier for most of us to relate to our own climbing.
True, Shawn doesn't have the resources Big Up-productions has, but it doesn't really matter. The Sends made me psyched to go out there and try harder, and in my world, that's one of the major reasons I watch climbing movies in the first place.
To make the next DVD even better, I have two suggestions:
- I'd like to see more of the surroundings where the climbing takes place. Aerial views from cranes, trees, or from the top of the crag perhaps?
- Maybe a bit less philosophy?
All in all, I think it's definitely worth watching, and the good thing is, it's in English, so what are you waiting for? Here is where you buy it.
