'Clarkson - Heaven & Hell'
(Jeremy Clarkson, et al / DVD / NR / (2006) 2007 / BBC Home Video)
Overview: British personality Jeremy Clarkson, host of Top Gear, brings you Heaven and Hell, a critical review of the best and worst cars in the automotive world.
DVD Verdict: If the mere mention of Porsches, Ferraris, and Maseratis is enough to get your heart racing, you'll want to take 'Heaven and Hell' out for a spin. Jeremy Clarkson, host of the International Emmy award-winning British series Top Gear, puts you in the driver's seat of the sports cars of your dreams (and other ill-fated vehicles of your worst nightmares). You only have to be a fan of vintage James Bond films to get a rush from the tire-smoking test drive of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage. Clarkson is authoritative and funny, and his enthusiasm is contagious. But woe to "the unimaginative junk built with no soul, flair or passion." "Seven deadly sinners" are dispatched to "hell" in creative ways. Clarkson purchases a Perodua, drives it across the street from the dealer, and then pummels it with a sledgehammer. He stages a jousting match between the "hateful" TR7 and a Ford Scorpio, A Citron gets the Monty Python treatment when a dumpster is dropped atop it. All done with Jeremy's usual witty manner I'm also glad to see the Stig doing his thing .. and loved the destruction of the useless things on four wheels! Just missed the Hamster and Capt. Slow giving Clarkson his much needed ribbing! The test drives around the track can get repetitive, but considering that this is the closest many of us will ever get to a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti or a Porsche 911, just strap yourself in, sit back, and enjoy the ride! This is a great piece of work! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:
