Speed, speed and more speed. This is more or less what sums up the very essence of the new Lobster film ‘Losers’. To be fair though, with a team consisting of riders like Halldor Helgason, Sparrow Knox, Frank Bourgeois, Fridge, Eiki Helgason and Birkir Georgsson, you wouldn’t really expect anything less.

The whole thing begins with music that sounds like something you’d come across at an undercover gig (Shoutout to King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard), multiple mosh pits included. You’ll have a hard time sitting still when these tunes start blaring out of your laptop.
We’re blessed with some gnarly AF bails at the beginning, bails that make us cringe in pain just looking at them. After the meaty intro, we see the boys hitting spots no one in their right mind would ever try – the rails are out of this world, and that’s before we’ve even mentioned the jump-into-wall ride Halldor takes off a massive rooftop.
