Motorcycle News (UK) - - Mcn garage -

Tested by Liam Mars­den Time tested One af­ter­noon What’s good? The Age of 27 is a 56-minute on­line film that tells the story of Casey Stoner, from his dirt track be­gin­nings in Aus­tralia to his two Mo­togp cham­pi­onships with Du­cati and Honda. It fea­tures in­ter­views from rac­ers, crew mem­bers and fam­ily and is one of the doc­u­men­taries now avail­able to rent (or buy) on Mo­togp’s Youtube chan­nel. (It’s also avail­able free on BT Sport On De­mand). If you have an hour or so to kill, you can watch the film wher­ever you are.

What’s not? Al­though it’s an hour long, the doc­u­men­tary feels rushed and for­mu­laic. Stoner’s ri­vals, fam­ily and crew mem­bers say a few words, fol­lowed by a mon­tage of him in ac­tion set to some cheesy mu­sic. I didn’t ex­pect a big-bud­get block­buster, but the mak­ers could have been a lit­tle more cre­ative.
