Two brothers overcome emotional and physical obstacles to achieve success in the competitive world of Supercross racing. The brothers' conflicts are magnified by their different life choices and their decision to become competitors and rivals. KC Carlyle is a more cautious rider than his younger brother Trip, who has more natural talent but takes too many risks. When KC gets an all-expenses paid "factory" -- corporate sponsored -- ride, a rift forms between the two brothers. Trip is forced to go at it alone, becoming a "privateer"--a rider without a sponsor.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"You could see the same thing for free -- with higher production values and snappier dialogue -- watching X Games coverage on ESPN."
‑ Christy Lemire, Associated Press
"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."
‑ Matt Singer, Village Voice
"That's right, it's time for yet another entry in that most-dreaded of genres: The XXXTREME Sports Movie."
‑ Michael Hastings, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
"Finally, we get Supercross: The Movie, which basically fills in the holes Supercross: The Novel left behind."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"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."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"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."
‑ Joshua Katzman, Chicago Reader
"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."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"It might hold some appeal if you're as teenager with a thing for dirt bikes."
‑ Richard Luck, Film4
"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."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"Too bad the DVD doesn't just cut out all the exposition and plot and (yikes) the actors"
‑ Keith Breese,
"Only the most devoted MX fetishists could like the film, because it doesn't offer a scrap of nourishment for the uninitiated."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"An example of how too much of anything will get annoying -- including VVRRRROOOOOOOMMM and flying bikes."
‑ John Anderson, Newsday
"It's a bizarre, contradictory mess, a lousy promotion for a sport still unknown to many Americans"
‑ Christopher Borrelli, Toledo Blade
"Mercifully, it's a mad dash to the final finish line."
‑ Harry Haun, Film Journal International
"Save your hate-mails, motorheads. I'm not knocking your favorite sport, just the amazingly brain-dead movie that it inspired."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
