Two guys ride motorcycles 10,000 kilometers from the tip of northern Scotland down to the southern tip of Africa. As you might expect, this is a great 3-month road trip, with accidents, adventures and much to learn. Since it’s the same two celebrity actors who rode motorcycles from London to New York “the long way around” (also a recommended True Film) there’s a lot of good natured fun and horsing around. It’s hard not to like the company of the two personable chaps. In short, this is a buddy flick. In seven hours they give you an enjoyable and decent orientation to the continent of Africa.
