The Fallout Volume 2: Review
Cool freestyle tricks are frequently and
in your face.
What is it?
It's 45 minutes of some of the most heart
pounding, adrenalin pumping, ATV antics ever
caught on film. While DVDs like the Carpe Diem
series focus on racing-action segments from
amateurs to pros, the second edition of The
Fallout series is more heavily focused on the
ATV FMX scene. What’s that you say? The jump
video thing has been done time and time again!
Not to worry, the crews from Akraix
Entertainment and Studio 411 have raised the bar
once again on what is thought possible on four
What’s Unique Here?
The MTV generation is known for editing work
that cuts from scene to scene faster than the
human brain can decode. Besides inducing a
headache, this brand of quick cutting has been
overused in all powersports videos since their
VHS format-only days. Fortunately, The Fallout
Volume 2 approaches the task of scene assembly
with a clean, professional style that makes all
of the on-screen feats even more spectacular to
behold. This, coupled with the naturally crisp
definition of the DVD format, results in a vivid
visual package of color and motion.
A few crash segments, OUCH!
While quad FMX gets the lion’s share of
attention, this isn’t to say that the film’s
producers forgot to include some racing segments
and wicked get-offs along the way. The action is
kept at a brisk pace from beginning to end, and
unlike most free-ride videos, Fallout 2 doesn’t
struggle to find filler material between the
What to Expect
This video contains breathtaking natural
terrain, incredible hang-time, tricks that rival
some of the world's best BMX riders, and camera
angles that have yet to be witnessed in the
realm of ATV videos. The soundtrack consists
mostly of scream-rock and lighter punk anthems
most certainly intended to pump up the film’s
viewers, although at times some of the aerial
maneuvers are so graceful that one could almost
imagine classical music causing goose-bumps.
The Fallout Series as added mud slinging
action along with their usual high
The industry is becoming increasingly more
crowded with quality video entries devoted
exclusively to ATV riding. Many rely upon
gimmicks to carve their own niche on the shelf.
The Fallout series does not find itself in need
of any particular marketing gimmicks to get
noticed. While the first entry in the series was
a bit more groundbreaking in its approach to
bring the skills of ATV free-riding to the
masses, the second volume keeps to the original
formula and only adds to it on account of the
ever-increasing creativity of the riders.
Just how impressive are the displays within
The Fallout Volume 2? Impressive enough to get
hardened industry insiders gasping at just how
high the bar has been raised in the ATV
free-ride world of late. If it has that type of
effect on those of us who surround ourselves
with it, imagine what your non-riding neighbors
are going to say!
