Supercross (2005)



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

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.

If you love Kawasakis, Hondas, and Yamahas, and don't mind tin-eared writing, get down to the multiplex.

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.
