BFE Films Forced Induction: The Final Cut
"There's a breed out there that embraces the uncertainty of a challenge. A group made up of people who worship dust and the smell of gasoline. This is a family of strangers with one thing in common: They are off roaders, and this is a film about them."

These are the opening lines to BFE Films Forced Induction: The Final Cut. We not only found them rather inspiring, but they were enough to convince us that this wasn't your everyday 4x4 video. It began to the sounds of bagpipes, which quickly developed into a driving rock-'n'-roll song with the pipes still wailing out the lead. The music continued throughout with brief interviews intermixed with the unending extreme 'crawling action of such well-known 4x4s as Michael Weaver's Epic 4x4 Sniper #5 and Steve Nantz's Centipede, and plenty of lesser-known, though plenty capable, rigs. The film follows groups of 'wheelers through trails in Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Nevada, and even includes desert racing footage of such racing heavyweights as Larry Ragland and the Terrible Herbst Racing Team.

Basically, the film gets back to the nature of 'wheeling and why so many folks are involved in the sport. The essential conclusion? Because it's there and because it's fun. It depicts this nature of family and friends getting together for a good time, and it couldn't be a more accurate portrayal. With plenty of fast-paced action and incredible camera angles, Forced Induction: The Final Cut answers the four-wheeler's need for a quality film about the sport they hold so close to their hearts. It made us feel good. Hopefully, it'll do the same for you.
