I saw it a couple of weeks ago and was very impressed. I think it will be a classic like On Any Sunday was/is. For someone who does not ride and is baffled why people would want to "risk their lives" this would help them understand why we do it.

I really liked that they featured riders from all disciplines at all levels. I will definitely be picking this one up on DVD.

I bought the DVD a week ago but still haven't watched it. It seemed to be a big PIA to see it in a theater with everyone a sellout or a long drive to get there. If a big TV doesn't lend itself to viewing it I have a High Def projector that should. If it stinks I can always toss Razorback into the player!

A buddy of mine bought the DVD and brought it over this afternoon. We watched WWR and then On Any Sunday. OAS is way more entertaining and professional despite being 40+ years old. WWR was fun but the film maker seemed addicted to slo-mo and the sound track began to sound like a Hallmark movie of the week chick flick after a while. WWR is a good one to show people who are not up on motorcycling but OAS remains more entertaining for riders.

To be honest I would have to say I'm with Gary, it was good,not over the top.

Would I see it again with a group of friends on a cold wet winter night, definately

will I dust off my DVD copy and watch it one of these days, sure one of these days.

I guess I need to get my hands on a copy of any given sunday..never watched that

If they had cut the last half hour it would have been a good movie.

I and everyone in the theater clapped at the end. Inspirational, emphasized family, quality time, attitude and portrayed very accurately what it feels like to "fly"on two wheels.

Not enough of this, too much of that, wrong coast....., no matter what they did someone would find fault with it I guess. For what they intended to do I think they did it pretty well but that's just my opinion.

On Any Given Sunday - The Next Chapter

This is going to be a great movie. I can't wait until it is released. I read somewhere that it was to be at the San Sebastian film festival, but when will it be shown on the east coast - Philadelphia?

I have watched ON Any Given Sunday about 30 or 40 times. The cinematography and story never gets old just like Dust to Glory.

I saw it on DVD, and I honestly don't know who the target audience was. Some of the cinematography was nice, and there were some interesting characters interviewed. Overall, it was entertaining enough. But, it seemed to be pushing a message that most riders already know. It seemed - as per the apt title - to try to explain the WHY of motorcycling enthusiasts. But it seems they marketed the movie TO motorcycle enthusiasts, rather than try to cross it over and market to non-riders in an attempt to bring them into the sport. Still, as it was, it couldn't convey that allure that you only feel if the doing of something speaks directly to you. It's just like nobody can explain to me why jumping out of an airplane is fun - it just IS to some people, and not to others.

So, yeah: preaching to the choir. And unfortunately, they marketed it only to the choir as well. I'm not a racing enthusiast, but the Faster movies seemed to be much better "motorcycle documentaries" to me, as were the "Long Way Round/Down" series; my non-riding wife was able to enjoy those productions as much as I did.
