  Unmissable

| | See all Lezmar63's reviews (12)

I never liked Senna when he was alive, I always thought, that he thought he was invincible, but this documentary changed my opinion to the man, it is very well put together, and is not only about the sport of F1, but about the man, that was, Ayrton Senna, and so is enjoyable, even if you aren't into F1, or sport in general.

  Outstanding Documentary Film

I watched this twice while on long plane journeys recently. I thought it was brilliantly made and very moving. The footage and the music was excellent. It really takes me back and Ayrton Senna truely was an inspiration. I do now own the blu ray version. With so much old footage you do gain little benefit over a dvd copy, but at 9.99 from play.com I don't mind. The extended version is a one watch for me. The theatrical version is better. This is one of the best films I have seen this year and the contributions of people like Ron Dennis and the F1 Doctor are fascinating. Even though I am not a big F1 fan, you can only admire the bravery and dedication of these incredible drivers.

  Best thing Ive ever watched

Forget movies, forget anything else. If your a fan of F1, your not really until you see this. Without spoiling anything, you will be absorbed, you will be amazed, you will feel happiness, anger, sorrow and then more happiness at the amazing things this man did, some of which just boggle the mind, need I say more?

  Prost V Senna....

F1 Fans, knock yourself out. This one is for you, some of the in car footage is fantastic and frankley terrifying, if you are into car racing that is. My wife who likes car racing a bit was not overly impressed and while she thought it sad that he died, which we all knew was coming so made it as tense as Titanic, the rest of the film was a bit slow and should really have been called Prost V Senna and why Senna thought he was hard done by. Difficult when only one protaganist is still alive admtedly as you only get the one view now. The Blu Ray seems pointless as the pic is mostly awful and do I feel I know the man Senna more now, not really, nothing you couldn't have guessed at. He holiday'd on big boats with nice looking girls around him, was a national hero in a poverty stricken country, was charitable giving rides in his speed boat, liked a female or two, died a tragic untimely death competing at the sharp end of an inherently dangerous sport. Sad but not the ground breaker I had been looking forward to being immersed by.

  Senna

| | See all jodavision's reviews (1)

From the day I heard about the release of this film, I was counting the days to see it. To re-live the career of my boyhood idol, in exquisite detail, with the emotional ups and downs of the great man's life, was a privilege. A truly epic film that would bring tears to anybody's eyes with a heart and soul, not only motorsport fans. The DVD will be a chersihed possession make no mistake.

  A must-have

This is possibly the best ever sports documentary, telling some of the behind the scenes story of Senna's great career. Deeply emotive, quite harrowing in parts, it is a must-see even if you are not an F1 fan. Poor Alain Prost is portrayed as a villan for the majority of the film, which if you know of the events on Imola 1989, is a little unwarranted but not unexpected given the bad feeling between the Alain and Ayrton between 1989 and 1993. Bear that in mind whilst watching the film and you'll gain a little more insight into Senna's driven nature.

  finally, the most eagerly awaited film (for me)

i thought i knew everything about Ayrton,
it's not until you see the private family footage, that you have a real insight into this amazing mans life.
i was looking forward to this movie like nothing before it.
from the minute Ayrtons mother started talking, till 5 minutes after the lights came on, i cried like a baby,
this is a 'Must Have' as far as i am conserned,
i have seen all his races (except for the Mercedes 190 race at the Nurburgring in 1984)
have read all the books by various authors,
seen the movie,
now i have to own it as well,
i need this, like a lady needs an expensive pair of shoes....

  Utterly Brilliant

| | See all Solobabe's reviews (2)

This goes beyond a Formula 1 or even Sporting documentary - it is a brilliant piece of film-making that does justice to the legend that is Ayrton Senna. I am bias as a Formula 1 fan who adored this man - but I am also a film fan and I can say with absolute conviction that anyone who loves inspired stories, great films, drama and human heart will not be left wanting after watching this documentary. It is breaking records and winning awards all over the World and so it should. It is a fitting and everlasting tribute to a simply wonderful man. Utterly brilliant.

I've been a Senna fan for as long as I can remember and could not wait to see this film. From the opening to its end you are taken on a journey that saw one of the sports greatest competitors rise to fame and reach the ultimate prize. Emotion is key and the film sucks you into the world of a man driven by a desire to win.

We all know the likely outcome of that terrible weekend, but to watch this film, for me, was a privilege.
