And I thought my weekend escapades in the mud were fun. That was until
I got a hold of IMV Films latest release MOAB: Like Nothing Else. Any
true Hummer enthusiast has come across the name Moab at one time or
another. Moab, Utah is home to some of the finest four wheeling
adventures in the US. Sprawling red rocks trails full of ancient
history as far back as the prehistoric era await you in this once
booming mining region. The primitive nature of Moab has created some
highly technical and obscure routes that are barely passable, unless
of course you're behind the wheel of an H1.
Follow a pack of highly experienced Hummer owners as they travel to
the mid West for two days of grueling off road excitement. Get a first
hand look at the true astonishing capabilities of the H1 as the
caravan of Hummers navigate through Moabs' most difficult terrain
including the Moab Rim, Lions Back and Hells Gate.
Moab: Like Nothing Else is full of excellent footage of Hummers
challenging the most difficult trails Moab has to offer. The 70-minute
DVD is full of day and night four wheeling, great camera angles of the
H1s suspension articulation, and some excellent candid interviews.
Watch the Hummers drive by broke down Jeeps and Toyotas with big
hearts. But of course no demanding off roading course is without
incidents. Things do break, but with the highly experienced group of
techs, the Hummers are back up and running in no time. Except when
video director Sav has an 8-mile trek downhill with no brakes.
Super steep inclines, stomach churning declines, and passage ways full
of unforgiving red rock walls await you in this exciting must have DVD
for any true Hummer enthusiast. Moab is no match for the H1!

In this film, the folks over at IMV tackle the task of documenting a Hummer trail ride at Moab. In short, they went out to film a bunch of Hummers, rock faces, wheeling, carnage, spectacular views and a group of people having a good time on the trails.
This is a DVD that is fun to sit down and watch when you can’t be on the trails, or to put on in the background while you are working on your truck. As a viewer, you get an introduction to a variety of the characters in the Hummer world and you get an opportunity to see Hummers rambling through the spectacular scenery of Moab. As an added bonus, you get to see the crew from IMV wheeling on terrain that requires slower speeds and low gearing than their previous “rally style” off-road experiences while driving in beater cars. Newcomers to wheeling in a Hummer can learn the benefits of BTM alongside these first time drivers of the “Angry Iron” rig borrowed from Shawn Smith.
When I asked director Sav Charudattan about the experience, he explained that, “ At IMV, we were accustomed to pushing automobiles, racecars and bikes to the limit on the street or at the track. The most off road experience we had was with beater rally cars driving 70 mph through Florida pine forests during the night. Usually we try and AVOID the rocks or roots in the road. So it was quite a change to intentionally seek out seemingly impossible obstacles and drive directly OVER them instead of around.”
The crew at IMV succeeds in making the viewer feel like they are part of the action – don’t be surprised if you feel a little like you were out there as part of this Moab Hummer convoy when you are done watching.
Be warned, there are two versions of this film on the DVD, one uncensored and one censored. The uncensored version does have harsh language, and the censored version features more bleeps than a game of Pac-Man (but you can probably get away with watching that one with the family!)
All in all, “Moab: Like Nothing Else” is a 70 minute documentary that is fun to watch and makes you want to roll out to Moab and wheel. There aren’t a whole lot of Hummer films or videos out there, but to date this is the best one on the planet.
