I’ve been a great fan of Danny MacAskill for a long time. No, great is not the right word, my fanship has been huge, no gargantuan. I’ve seen all mtb films I could lay my hands on (or eyes at least) more times than I can count, I’ve watched documentaries. I’ve felt so inspired to try to push my own very limited limits.
I’m still in awe of his skills, but in all other respects his stocks just plummeted. Why oh why Danny did you have to go and become such a stereotype? Why did you have to do this? Not only does this film suck in terms of gender stereotypes, it also sucks as a mtb film. You know, I saw the whole damn thing, just because I kept hoping that one of the girls would jump up on a bike and do some awesome trick, because that would have turned the film from tragedy to at least something worth watching. Now it just plainly sucks on all accounts. I wish I had more virtual thumbs, so I could give you at least one thumb down. Go make amends! Please!
