I was actually surprised that Supercross got even a 4 from me. It was such dumb fun, that I couldn't help but resist. Trust me, the film is really pretty bad, but me being somewhat of an extreme sport fan myself, it was hard to turn away in parts. But its this style of MTV generation kids, the ones who made this film, and the ones who may like it, that worries me. I just hope nobody mistakes this schlock for a piece of art.

The writing is, pure and simple, awful. The acting is atrocious as well, and the film get's more predictable as it goes. The dramatic sequences rarely work, but the motorbike races are actually filmed fairly well, and I was impressed with some of the stunt work. Though predictable, the film offers us a character or two to like, but the 'villians' are so cheesy and clichéd that its almost unbearable.

I won't dig deep into the plot, but it revolves around two brothers who find motocross to be a good escape from their troubles at home and after their father's death. The main characters are quite a pain, one is bossy and the other is a genuine idiot who becomes increasingly annoying, and in the final scenes I actually wanted him to crash. The emotional scenes are worthy of a cringe or two, and a predictable romance subplot gradually unfolds. The story really proceeds to make less and less sense, and all the film can offer by the end is some nice eye candy. The one liner attempts are also equally miserable.

If you're a fan of the sport, then its recommended not as a film, but more just a long infomercial on the sport, with some nice stunt work. The story is at best 3rd grade level and the bad acting is hard to ignore, but it gives a decent perspective on the sport, decent enough that a lot of fans shall be pleased. But if you're not a fan of this sport, then at all costs: Stay away!

I just read a review in the paper today. They said that the film realy lacked any story line and what it did have was extremely abreviated.

Apparently, it's a movie about 2 dirt poor brothers who want to be racers. It's got a final scene which was rather predictable. 2 poor guys racing against a fully funded richie-rich. Guess who wins and gets the girl?? :rolling:

I guess the majority of the film is racing footage so it didn't leave a lot of time for plots or story line. He also said that the racing footage was good.

Overall, he gave the flick 1.5 stars out of 5. He said that you are better off going to watch real super cross than seeing the movie.
