Bike Setup: Haro Escape 8.3 stock
from Ontario, Canada
Date Reviewed: August 5, 2003
Strengths: Joshua Benders 2nd or 4th attemp to stick the landing on the Jawdrop which is a 55 foot overhanging cliff in Kamloops B.C. The Soundtrack is explosive with my 2 favourite Songs [Click Click Boom, Saliva] & [Be careful with that mic, Clutch] Kris Holmes ability to ride a unicycle on the ledges of a suspended bridge which is like 90 feet up in the air and his ability to ride shore trails on a unicycle.
See the movie it's filled with explosive freeride action

a Weekend Warrior
from Leeuwarden - The Netherlands
Date Reviewed: February 9, 2003
Strengths: -Great camerawork; Use of helicopters, cranes, etcetera; -Intoduction of riders and locations is a good idea; -First 10 minutes were great and set high expectations (Hell Track California); -Kris Holm on the rail of that bridge was really breathtaking; -Bobby Root in San Fransisco was nice; -Camerawork in Nelson BC was some of the best I've seen in videos like this.
Weaknesses: -Fat Tire Fury seems not to be finished; -Except for the intro-track, music was terrible. -The World Cup parts are really cheap ways to finish the video. My point is; I don't want to see old stuff on a video like this. -Eventhough Kris Holm's trick on that bridge was awesome, I'd rather see more urban assault shots than unicycle. Same goes up for the freeride wheelchair.
For a $30 video I expect much more. The shots taken in California and Nelson were really great, but that's about it. This video just doesn't motivate me. Ride to the Hills and Search for the Holey trail did.

Strengths: Thsame spectacular things in comparison to the first video, cliff drops, wc downhill, wc dual slalom, wc 4x, bender, cedric gracia, lopes, 30-40 fet drops, etc.etc
Weaknesses: nothing new ...
¿Is this video better than than the previous one (nwd)??
The twig was very high, the first video was impresive and spectacular, (the best video ever), nwd 2 it could not obtain the same sucsess. Anyway, this video is better than all the kranked, and other fox videos.-

from Boulder Creek, CA, USA

Strengths: This can all be sumed up with kick ass. The music was sick, the downhill kept you wanting more, the uni on the bridge wanted you to throw up because no one else can do it, and the espesially nice touch was Bender. I duno maybe it was just me but they need to go one more time over there at Fox and get out one more video.
Weaknesses: The only wish is that it would be free but hey you have to pay for everyth8ing these days.
Bike Setup: My baby, cannondale v1000, judy xL, fox airshock in the rear, and nice new nobs(speacialized 2.35) i won them at a rafel.hehe

Strengths: Great footage. Loved the weelies down the streets. Great last ending scene (checking his package to make sure their still there :) A little to much of the one wheeler. But it was well worth twenty seven dollars.
Weaknesses: It could have been better. More riding.
Overral, pretty good for my first video, overral it's ok. But it's not worth 27 dollars.
Bike Setup: Dual Supension for downhill'n. 5 inch Fox vanilla in the back and a 7 inch marzocci bomber Jr. T in the front

Strengths: Well I Muni(mountain unicycle) and man Kris Holms Rocks!!!! I would have lie to see more of him but come on do some more drops that is the kind of thing I like to do and see!!! The bridge ledge thing was heart pounding especially when he rode the tube railing. All I have to say about the rest was it was AWSOME and to all you mountain bikers remember North Shore Muning is just as kool if not kooler than mountain biking. If you like unicycling buy Unibaza or one tired guy(a full hour of Kris) just remember MUNI MUNI MUNI!!!!!
Weaknesses: Not enough MUNI!!!!!
I am into mountain biking and after seeing 1 I got a MUNI(and MUNIs are kool because you can outfit them with mountain bike parts like I have a double wide and gazz 3inch) To all of you watch the movie buy a MUNI!!!!!
Strengths: Bobby Root's hillarious seggy in San Fran with the blow up doll, Bourdon and Beckjord's craziness in BC, Kris Holm's unicycle madness, Bender trying to find the most elaborate way to becomming infertile...
Weaknesses: Boring music, old guys riding dh and ds get pretty boring too
I can't believe I got this on DVD for less than $20! I've watched the first NWD like 30 times, and just had to get the second. NWD 2 is longer and has some crazier stuff than the first, but I would have liked to have seen more of the absolutely crazy cliff hucking and BC boardwalks and ladders that made the first one so great. The longer trials sections (from Holm and Lenosky) more than make up for it though, in my opinion. Overall I think it's a better movie, but only because it's longer. The DVD has some cool extras on there too.
konaworld.com says that Bourden and a few of the other Kona boys have been out in the Australian outback shooting segments for Disorder III!
