  1. 100
    Absolutely exhilarating...Pound for pound, it's more kinetically thrilling than anything Hollywood has produced in years, not least of all because it's real.

    Like his father, Brown inserts himself into the action via folksy narration. His husky, laid-back voice sounds something like Kevin Costner, lending a regular-guy aura to the reverential treatment he affords his subject.
  3. 75
    If there's one thing missing above all else from today's action movies, it's the lost art of the car chase.
  4. 60
    Brown probably captures enough to satisfy hardcore enthusiasts, but everyone else might end up wondering why he ignored the glory for the dust.
  5. 58
    The single most impressive thing about the film, in fact, is the taste that this shotgun technique gives of the mass simultaneity of the race.
  6. But where there is a natural poetry of motion in surfing movies, off-road racing is a herky-jerky pastime whose ­appeal is hard to fathom. I guess you had to be there.
  7. 20
    The movie is monotonous, storyless, and at under 100 minutes, interminable.
