Based on the MTV series of the same name, Nitro Circus documents the crazy, death-defying antics of Travis and his posse as they travel far and wide to stage outrageous stunts. There's no end of catch-your-breath moments, from a tricycle double-backflip to an endless car roll. Despite the imminent physical danger, the stuntmeisters seems to emerge unscathed every time, only to move on to the next Jackass-inspired hijinks. The film goes in-depth with interviews with the performers and follows the team to their live show in -- where else -- Las Vegas. The 3D effects provide a little extra dimension to a film that lacks a plot or simple storyline and plays like a deadpan comedic documentary.
