All Critics (30) | Top Critics (14)

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


This is less of a movie then it is a recap. The 1hour and 30minute runtime drags on as you just watch footage from previous x games. The interviews are the only new thing but they aren't interesting enough to get you through this movie. The saving grace was watching the skateboarding footage, the jump over the great wall and the mega-ramp. But just remember if you keep up with the x-games every year, you're not seeing anything new. 3/10

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.

Fans will be dissapointed because it's all stuff they've already seen. Everyone else will most likely be bored unless they find the 3D amazing, which I know most of them won't. Skip it.
