Adrenalin Crew 2 – Awaiting Trial


Picture: C    Sound: C     Extras: C     Main Program: C



When we read about a group of guys doing motorcycle stunts so illegal and crazy that they were dangerous and in trouble with the law, we thought this might be an interesting release, but Adrenalin Crew 2 – Awaiting Trial is much more about being loud, gross, remarkably stupid off the road and despite the admittedly very “stacked” (professional critical opinion) and sexy women around, this is not the wild bike stunt piece we had expected.


Maybe in the 1970s when they would have had the high mix of boldness, energy, knowing what to do with both these women and their bikes, this could have really been a cutting-edge piece that we could enjoy and recommend.  As it stands, there is no one director, no focus, wasted opportunities throughout and though the bike stunts included are solid, this is more Jackass than Evil Knievel.  Too bad, because these guys have talent and there is maybe even a documentary film here.  Maybe they’ll get their act together for that, if we ever hear from them again.


The 1.33 X 1 image was shot in various low-definition digital formats and is as rough looking as it is roughly edited.  That is the nature of programs like this one, so the intended audience will likely not care.  The Dolby Digital 2.0 sound is harsh, sometimes stereo (give or take the stereo Rock songs) and one should exercise caution in turning up the sound too much, and not because “it rocks” or anything but because the sound is strident and denatured.  BE WARNED that the menus are even worse; a problem with the mastering.


Extras include a dud spoof of MTV’s Pimp My Ride (reviewed elsewhere on this site), media footage, two music videos, band credits, clip of a wreck, clip of an arrest, director’s commentary and previews for four other titles.
