Critic Reviews

  1. For a quick ticket into the world of extreme sports, the sky-high, adrenaline-gorged stunts captured in X Games will make any spectator gasp, wince and brace with fear.
  2. Mostly an overlong demo reel of increasingly gutsy tricks.
  3. Only in the loosest sense is X Games 3D: The Movie an actual movie. It is essentially a promotional film for extreme action sports and ESPN.
  4. 50
    Steve Lawrence's glitzy infotainment raises the question, "How much awesomeness can an audience take?"
  5. 50
    You’d think the 3-D effects would bring the action closer, but the kooky optics often have the opposite effect, turning the athletes into GI Joe and Boba Fett action figures zipping around a dollhouse set.
  6. An uneven thrill-circus display that too often feels like TV writ large and loud rather than the kind of cinematic reimagining that defined the surf-flick genre.
  7. Poorly written, contains too much hero worship and profiles too many events - including one that combines the high jump with motorcycles. But the documentary generates a remarkable amount of goodwill with its stunning visuals, which look breathtaking in 3-D.
  8. Reviewed by: Andrew Barker
    A relatively unimaginative take on the proceedings, coupled with occasionally bizarre stereoscopic work and awkward narration, causes the picture to bail out more often than it soars.
  9. 40
    Dime-store philosophy, coupled with the running commentary from the Games’ heinously Spicoli-esque announcers (“Dude, that was the hardest slam we’ve ever seen!”), ruins an otherwise gripping, in-your-face experience.
