While it showcases some cool stunts, Supercross feels like an infomercial for its titular sport, with undeveloped characters and a shopworn plot.

Carlyle (Steve Howey) and his kid brother, Trip (Mike Vogel), are both racers in the rough and tumble world of supercross, a revved-up variation on motocross racing in which specially modified motorcycle negotiate specially built dirt tracks that send riders through tricky twists and turns, over rough terrain, and off high-flying jumps. Both are talented racers, but K.C. has a wilder and more

You could see the same thing for free -- with higher production values and snappier dialogue -- watching X Games coverage on ESPN.

Like the drive-in classics of Roger Corman and Samuel Z. Arkoff, this develops the principal characters and conflicts with just enough depth and keeps the narrative moving at a brisk pace.

Only the most devoted MX fetishists could like the film, because it doesn't offer a scrap of nourishment for the uninitiated.

Director Steve Boyum, a former motocross driver, hacks his racing footage to incomprehensible pieces and, from the looks of the meager, jumpy narrative, did the same to the script.

The writing is abysmal, the acting wouldn't pass muster in a high school play, and the direction by erstwhile stuntman Steve Boyum (Timecop: The Berlin Decision) is positively sleep-inducing between cycle jumps.

An example of how too much of anything will get annoying -- including VVRRRROOOOOOOMMM and flying bikes.

That's right, it's time for yet another entry in that most-dreaded of genres: The XXXTREME Sports Movie.

It might hold some appeal if you're as teenager with a thing for dirt bikes.

It's a bizarre, contradictory mess, a lousy promotion for a sport still unknown to many Americans

Finally, we get Supercross: The Movie, which basically fills in the holes Supercross: The Novel left behind.

As a fetishized appropriation of the extreme sport of Supercross motorcycle racing, for a story about two different-but-similar racing brothers, "Supercross" succeeds in combining fast action with slow burn emotional fuses.

Mercifully, it's a mad dash to the final finish line.

This action-packed dirt bike adventure is way too formulaic for even the dopiest of dopes.

The cinematography has the cheap, washed-out look of old home movies, but director Steve Boyum provides some exciting race footage to pass the time.

Too bad the DVD doesn't just cut out all the exposition and plot and (yikes) the actors

Save your hate-mails, motorheads. I'm not knocking your favorite sport, just the amazingly brain-dead movie that it inspired.

Supercross has its charms for those who appreciate cinematic innocence, and as a love letter to its subject certainly registers as sincere.

A short and frantic cookie cutter of a sports movie that will please fans of the sport, but probably won't bring more to the fray.

Part advertisement for Clear Channel's Supercross broadcasts and part hellish miscalculation on the part of the producers.

When the first line of a movie is "My name is Trip Carlyle," you know you're in trouble. That sounds like a guy stuck in the '80s with a made up name.

Audience Reviews for Supercross

As a motocross/supercross fan & rider, I was really disappointed in this movie. Not even an hour into the movie, both brothers have girlfriends...really? There seemed to be more romance than racing in the entire movie. The supercross side to the movie wasn't a breath of fresh air either. There was just something about it that seemed so wrong...maybe it was the fact that they put Channing Tatum and Aaron Carter on dirt bikes and called them "racers"...or it could be because they made a privateers' racing career look easy. Winning against professional factory riders? Really? Supercross the movie is a huge let down.

A movie that tries to be amazingly cool, but tries so hard that it fails!

Loud, dumb race movie, the two lead actors have an okay chemistry as brothers and are easy on the eye but that's all this has going for it.

Supercross' plot is shopworn despite the one or two cool stunts provided in the last fifteen minutes.
