X Games 3D: The Movie (2009)



Critic Consensus: Though fans of the event will likely enjoy X-Games 3D: The Movie, most will find it a poorly put together, skin deep, extended advertisement for the extreme sports competition.

Such dime-store philosophy, coupled with the running commentary from the Games' heinously Spicoli-esque announcers, ruins an otherwise gripping, in-your-face experience.

Aside from unrevealing sit-downs with a few key players, X-Games 3D: The Movie is mostly an overlong demo reel of increasingly gutsy tricks.

Unfocused and underwhelming, X Games 3D is most notable as a missed opportunity.

This feature is X-treme only in its multidimensional dullness, which is compounded by interviews in which the interchangeable thrillbots discuss themselves and each other with an immense lack of insight.

This is more a highlights reel than a movie, but there's not a film out there that can top the drama of Danny Way jumping the Great Wall of China by skateboard -- with a broken ankle.

Although the competitions are undoubtedly impressive achievements in the daredevil arts, as a record of what these mentally tough participants do, it too often feels like a warmed-over energy drink.

Audience Reviews for X Games 3D: The Movie


Originally shot for 3D imax, this film looks great, is polished and has great sound even in a home theater. The only draw back is having watched the x-games I knew alot of the out comes of the events.

Jeff Heruth

to me not really worth the 13.25 admission fee good documentary but the 3d wasn't mind blowing spectacular....but i'm a very casual viewer of the xgames i think i only watched 2 xgames events....so i only know the marquee names....and i'm not super into this but was interested....the documentary.....i got more respect for these guys as driven competitors.....and you got a look into what drives these guys to do what they do..........good documentary but not a great 3d movie..
