Produced and Directed by Katherine Imp aka Ringleader, with her brother Brandon as Monkey and friend Emily Ginger as Lightning, all starts out well and I actually enjoyed the movie, even though it got a little over the top with the drama at times. I don't think any of the drama was contrived, but at times I wanted to reach into the computer screen and slap each of the three hikers to get them to get a grip.
All in all I enjoyed the movie, even with all the drama. I liked as they worked their way through each of the hardships that a thru hike throws at you along with the personal meltdowns that everyone has when embarking on a long distance hike. I found myself laughing at times and squirming at others. Probably exactly what they were going for. Bravo.
One thing I noticed, Ringleader really lived up to her trail name. Even though she mentioned it a number of times that everyone should "hike their own hike", I really think she expected the other two to hike her hike. Being the producer, director and "ringleader" are all about vision and control and I think her lawyer came out when things didn't go just as her preconceived plans dictated.
I'm really happy that each of them pretty much ended up "Hiking Their Own Hike".
