Standouts: Brandon Cocard, Cale Zima, Victor De Le Rue, Bode Merrill
The unique vibe of Absinthe strikes you from the very first image and leads you right the way through with what will be noticed as a way smoother edit and music choice than last year. The Super 8 atmosphere gives a timeless feel to the movie, and the action as well. The overriding theme is just deep pow and huge tricks all the way through, but the street stuff is really serious too, especially with Cocard.
Bode Merrill’s part really stands out, not only because of the odd choice of music, but also because he rips and will leave you slack-jawed: a double one-foot attempt, crazy gaps… it’s just insane action. Bode innovates and does it on features with serious consequences. Congrats man!
The final part goes to Victor De Le Rue, with a solid showing in the backcountry and a tweak of class as well. Anyway, Absinthe can be relied on to deliver the hammers and this year is no different – if anything the tempo of the movie is the best it’s been in recent years.
Watch this for: Big backcountry riding and urban action from one of the most recogniasable film crews in the game
