    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.

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

    Completely disposable yet rousing on its own crude, testosterone-saturated terms.
  4. Amusingly, Supercross puts up a fierce anticorporate front, lauding the self-financed ''privateer'' over the ''factory'' cyclist. If this is a joke, few will get it.

    Not since Burt Reynolds's "Stroker Ace" has a racing movie provided so many laughs, intentional or otherwise.
  6. Its release calculated to coincide with the X Games, Supercross: The Movie is advertainment to the extreme.

    Provides plenty of authentic dirt-flying motorcycle thrills, but the film's excruciating earnestness and clunky script frequently slow its energetic pace to a grinding halt.
  8. Ultimately, Supercross is an example of how too much of anything will get annoying -- including VVRRRROOOOOOOMMM and flying bikes.

    Filled with tremendous stunts and well-shot racing sequences, director Steve Boyum's loud, down-and-dirty ride through the world of Supercross motorcycle racing comes to a screeching halt for its many pit stops for Hollywood clich├ęs.

    When huge chunks of character development and narrative exposition are relegated to a track announcer's running commentary, it can never be a good sign.
  11. Unfortunately, while director Steve Boyum is a successful stunt man and off-road biker, his skills do not extend to the relatively passive arena of filmmaking. Somehow, he even makes much of the action static.

    For anyone who digs hardcore motorcycle racing, Supercross delivers enough engine-revving, dirt-spewing motorcross action to satisfy even the most intense adrenaline craving.

    A poor man's "Lords of Dogtown," substituting hard-core motorcycle racing for extreme skateboarding and featuring a young cast of television-bred actors.

    The movie's biggest drawback is a failure to deliver what's promised.
  15. The most amazing fact about Supercross is that it took three people to write it. Two chimpanzees with a typewriter could have done just as good a job.

    While there's no blood to be seen in Supercross, the film is rated PG- 13, due to some crash scenes, a little strong language and some mild sexuality. That's a shame. This movie was tailor-made for 12-year-olds.

    A collection of product plugs masquerading as a movie en route to home video.

    The movie itself has no edge. It barely has a movie.

    Since the focus is on the track, the filmmakers aren't out to reinvent the wheel, but for such a simple piece of formula storytelling, they do a remarkably poor job of dotting I's and crossing T's.
  20. 0
    Fails to kick start anything other than the urge to giggle.
  21. Shamelessly cross-promotional "extreme" sports flick.
  22. 0
    That legendary adolescent tolerance for garbage may be severely tested by Supercross.

Supercross fulfilled everone of my horrible expectations. The scenery was good but the acting was hollow, I could care less about the characters, the script and plot had holes in them and it was just a usual disappointment like so many other pictures in the world.

    Supercross circut racing Finals riders and crowd at the Las Vegas THQ Championship became live "extras" for the night-event film conclusion. Supercross circut racing Finals riders and crowd at the Las Vegas THQ Championship became live "extras" for the night-event film conclusion. High-intensity lighting of the Vegas venue greatly added to the elaborate camera technique expressed by the experienced Stunt Director Steve Boyum. Vivid sharp-focused film and emphatic sound is edited IMAX style. The last twenty minutes of "Supercross, The Movie" are spectacular on the theater screen. Full Review »

    "Supercross" spectacular racing photography, best during the Las Vegas THQ AMA Championship, makes the film worth seeing. Bright Vegas "Supercross" spectacular racing photography, best during the Las Vegas THQ AMA Championship, makes the film worth seeing. Bright Vegas stadium lights allowed the cameras (including an over-the-stadium cable system) to stop way down and put crystal-clear images on film. Editing added to the extreme. "Supercross" would play best in the theater due to the graphic and solid-clean speedway cinematography near the movie conclusion. A re-edit would improve the beginning of "Supercross." Some scenes that were taken out of the film's beginning were missed, and several that were included lacked film charm. Actors are mostly young and feature talented "unknowns" who may be about to become famous. Ryan Locke and Sophia Bush present solid performances. Supercross racers David Pingree and Tyler Evans show easy acting style. A simple back-in-time romance and a brotherly sub-plot are all the storyline "Supercross" has to offer. The main draw is the richly edited cycle racing film. Full Review »
