Before watching this documentary, I was not aware of what the documentary was about going into it and after watching it, I am pleasantly surprised and have a newfound appreciation for Peter Brock.

A feature-length documentary which shares the life of Peter Brock. In case you are not familiar, Peter Brock was well known in Australia. A lot of people will say that Peter Brock was the most excellent racing car driver that Australia ever witnessed, and the man was a great icon for the entire world to see.

During the film we also get interviews from many people. These interviews include those who influenced Peter Brock and the people who have been impacted by the presence of Peter Brock since, including his family and loved ones.
The visuals are lively. I enjoyed seeing the older footage of Peter Brock as a child, but even more as his journey began. The makers of this documentary were rather keen to provide the best footage they could and were eager to tell a complete story of his life. The audio track was also rather pleasing.
Overall, while I was quite familiar with the Australian icon, this documentary was well presented. It was great to learn about this legend. The soundtrack and sound effects for this documentary are rather pleasing, and I also enjoyed seeing all the older footage to tell the whole story.
