This frenetic documentary about motorcycle daredevil Seth Enslow chronicles his career as a madman on two wheels, focusing on his attempt to set the world's distance record for jumping a motorcycle more than 250 feet fro... more »m one ramp to another. Enslow's reckless style is portrayed vividly with clips showing him doing things on a motorcycle that no sane person would even envision. He tries to ride up vertical mountainsides, he goes rocketing off cliffs, and in one segment that shows how he literally dropped onto the scene and established himself as an up and coming wild man, he sails through the air and lands on a desert hillside filled with parked motorcycles (whose owners madly scramble to avoid his unexpected landing). Enslow is interviewed on the radio by rapper Ice T, and he's followed on tour in various countries, doing motorcycle stunts and partying with his friends, who are, like he is, heavily tattooed dudes. The Hard Way showcases Enslow's obsession to set the world's distance jumping record, and even interviews the fellow who designed Enslow's ramp. Footage of the great jump includes Enslow's rough and bloody landing. As if that's not enough, the DVD contains an extra feature containing X-rays of Enslow's injuries. --Robert J. McNamara« less

"THIS FILM HAS VERY LITTLE TO DO WITH MOTORCYCLING AND MORE TO DO ABOUT SETH AND HIS WANABEE GANGSTER FRIENDS. SETH BEHAVES LIKE A PUNK IN THIS VIDEO, KIDS LOOK UP TO HIM, AND HE HAS LET THEM DOWN, HE HAS SHOWN THAT HE IS NOT WORTH LOOKING UP TO. IN ONE SCENE HIM AND HIS "POSSE" ARE WALKING DOWN THE STREET HOLDING ASSAULT RIFLES, WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH MOTORCYCLING?? I ADVISE AGAINST BUYING HIS VIDEO, GIVE YOUR MONEY TO TRAVIS OR MCGRATH"
Seth... A guy with no self preservation skills.

"I have both the DVD and the VHS of this video. The VHS is good for the footage, but the DVD rocks. The DVD provides extra info, segments and insights to Seth and his wild motorcycle jumps. You get the info on the big crash, how Seth sees himself and a host of other goodies (Including an interactive segment on what he has broken.)This DVD includes interviews with the makers of Crusty Demons of Dirt (1-4, 2000 & 6). Comments from other professional riders (which is not positive, but really funny) give other peoples feelings on Seth and the rider he is. Finally see the crash out in Antelope Valley, CA in '99 that put a big hole in his head. If you like motorcycle movies, and enjoy the "Free Riding" crusty types, the video is not going to fully please. But if you want to see the inside to Seth and how this guy has no self preservation skills, then you got to have it. Long live the freaks...."

"Seth rules, but it could've had more. But..... Gotta get the video just because it's all of the coolest jumps from the other videos all in one. If you collect the Crusty's, you'll get to see all the jumps you said "SON OF A!!!!" to, all in one. The one downfall is that.. if you collect Crusty's, you've seen most of it already...... but not in a row!!!"

"I've never seen a viedo where someone jibs so much. Seth is a god. If you have seen any of the crusty videos then your going to love "The hard way". He just hucks it so much bigger then anyone ever has. There is just something awsome about going for the record jump on a motorbike and getting crushed. Check out slednecks if your into people huckin it huge. It was cool, big truck."
