    Most of Ultimate X is comprised of truly exhilarating footage of men -- and one woman -- pushing their bodies and their nerve to the edge.

    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.
  3. 75
    Quibbles aside, Ultimate X zips by speedily and is rad fun for sports fans and sedentary folks alike.
  4. This being the "ultimate" movie about "extreme" sports, there's a lot of superlative slinging in the commentary.
  5. After clawing their way into the Olympics, so-called extreme sports deserve respect, but this is no way to get it.
  6. 60
    Nausea-inducing street luge provides the requisite kinesthetic thrill of this mega-cinematic genre.
  7. 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.
