Bleu remains one to watch, but only real fans will want to watch this.

Free Style is about motocross and stars Corbin Bleu of the Disney Channel repertory company, two facts that might lead you to expect a certain kind of film.

You don't have to be a swooning teenage girl to be enamored of Free Style and its heartthrob actor Corbin Bleu.

As predictable and cliché as Free Style is, it moves along briskly enough and Bleu is compelling enough that it doesn't wear out its welcome.

Bleu's cute-but-bland act flatlines in every scene of a movie with a script that is a perfect match for his abilities.

The movie revels in that kind of good-natured, sitcom-style corniness.

Teen motocross fan aims big in well-meaning but so-so drama.

You can always while away the hour and a half playing 'Count the Cliches.' One wishes Bleu all the best, but on the evidence of this picture his career might be a lot shorter than his hair.

Soft-peddled father issues, and race relations get coasted over like so much conveyor-belt product in director William Dear's oh-so-safe kids' romantic sports drama.

For High School Musical fans unwaveringly devoted to Corbin Bleu, Free Style provides ample opportunity to swoon over the former East High basketballer's big floppy hair and Disney Channel-grade emoting.
