Re: Long way down.
We went and saw it here in Austin last night - unfortunately the cinema messed up and there was no audio for the GS ad and opening shots of the movie, and then for the first part in Scotland, the audio was akin to a single PC speaker behind the screen. Needless to say, after much jeering audio was restored, but they didn't restart the movie.
It's in the same vein as Long Way Round, but it's a shame that they flashed through much of the trip from John O'Groats thru Europe, missing out some spectacular riding and scenery. The Africa footage was awesome, although some parts might be deemed by some folks as not being 'kid friendly', which is perhaps what has garnered some negative comments.
What did surprise us, and is confirmed by the LWD web site, is that other then the damage caused by the offs they had, the only real breakdowns were due to rear shock failure.
Needless to say the first thing that SWMBO said when the lights came up was 'Don't even think about it.....'
In looking at the descriptions for the TV episodes, it looks like they may have some footage that was not included in the movie, it's definatley worth watching.
