    Most of Ultimate X is comprised of truly exhilarating footage of men -- and one woman -- pushing their bodies and their nerve to the edge.
  3. In a feat of truly impressive cinematic finesse, Hendricks manages to capture every possible angle, from below a soaring motorcycle to atop a speeding luger's helmet.

    This being the "ultimate" movie about "extreme" sports, there's a lot of superlative slinging in the commentary.

    Happily, a feeling of genuine comradeship among these athletes shines through, and their irreverent, go-for-broke comments are a jolt of fun compared to the usual canned epigrams from pampered sports multimillionaires.
