An essential for a ski movie collection. You need to get it. great urban and backcountry paralleled with awesome editing and cinematography from level 1 produces a great ski movie.
great vibe in this movie.
Really good value. You can find it cheap too.
It's a very good movie. It's still very watchable. rewind quality is high.
Shanghai Six is one of the best ski movies ever made. Period. Take incredible urban rails and mix it with some insane backcountry kickers along with some of the best skiers, new and old, and you have one of the best representations of the sport when it was made, even now. The editing is great throughout the entire movie with creative ways to introduce sponsors and athletes. The top segments include Corey Vanular, Travis Redd, Tanner Rainville, Crichton and the urban friends segment, Craig Coker, Liam Downey, and Steele Spence. Also notable are Loic Callomb Pattonâ€™s segment where he destroys the step up to step down feature at Keystone and John Symms segment.
Big Mountain 2.5
Overall skiing 9.5
+Steele Spenceâ€™s comeback and best segment to date(he does something else than boot grabs and does a switch 7 in the backcountry). Creative editing. Craig Cokerâ€™s segment and the wall ride. Insane rails.
-Iâ€™ve been sitting here for 5 minutes trying to think about something negative about this movie. Dammit, level 1, thanks for wasting 5 minutes of my life. Iâ€™ve got nothing.
Keep in mind, my little ratings system is adjusted for the year it was made. So dont compare a rating 7 from the 1999-2000 ski movies to the 2007-2008 ski movies
music-8 everything was pretty good besides the blue skies song....
overall a 9
probably be a 10 if teddy bear crisis didnt come out that year, cuz tbc is dope but shanghai is still worth the buy and watch
