Be honest. When was the last time you watched the fourth film of a movie franchise and thought “Yeah, you know what, this one is the best of the lot”? I’ll tell you when: never. It has literally never happened. Fourth films are, by and large, a steaming bag of horse shit; cash-ins on a winning formula, a victory for the fat cats over any lingering sense of artistic credibility. They’re awful. Just awful.
Then we sat back and watched ‘Slice ‘n’ Dice: Volume 4′ and, well, we saw things in a whole new light. The fourth instalment of this snowboarder’s wet dream video series takes the action to Niseko, Japan, for some sweet, sweet, sweet night-time carving combos backed up by a banging tune (‘Road’ by LIP).
It’s great. Really, bloody, great.
