After your previous Paris-Dakar post, it seems only too apt that the film felt a need to add a motorcycle.
"They had one precious resource, time." But speed thrills.

Your more recent posts on "Critters vs. Sand" remind me of a movie episode that turns out to be factual, in which prisoners emulate moles, tunnelling only a metre below ground through sand that collapsed behind them, breathing by poking rods up to the surface. In the movie, this attempt fails; in life, amazingly, it succeeded--despite their having to spend an entire daylight period underground inside the camp fence, motionless and naked.

That is an amazing story, Richard - thanks for drawing my attention to it, and the link.
