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.

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.

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

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.

Richard Luck

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?… More

Supercross' plot is shopworn despite the one or two cool stunts provided in the last fifteen minutes.
KJ Proulx
A movie that tries to be amazingly cool, but tries so hard that it fails!
jay nixon
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.
