Welcome to the high-intensity, high-octane world of Supercross, the extreme sport where gravity knows no limits. Brothers KC and Trip Carlyle are up-and-coming motorcycle racers with limited opportunities, unlimited potential, and dreams of becoming champions. When KC's big break comes in the form of a lucrative, corporate "factory" sponsorship, the brothers are torn apart, becoming bitter rivals both on and off the track. But when a tragic accident threatens their Supercross dreams, the brothers must cast aside their differences -- and fear itself -- to defy the odds and take the checkered flag!

Second, the best review they could put on their box cover was from a national motorcross Champion himself saying that is was "FULL THROTTLE SUPERCROSS ACTION!"...WOW! I'm definitly sold now!
Now about the film, i'm not really into motorcycle stuff but i can basically can get into anything when it has a good flow and storyline, well they had a good flow but the storyline was very weak.
Althought the Motorcycle stunts were kinda cool if you care for that stuff!
Fast breakdown of the movie...two brothers who really love the sport really wanna make it big, they finally get a chance and one of the brothers (KC) succeeds in getting a sponsor deal while the other (Trip) is pissed off and always whining and thinking that he should've of been the one who got the deal.
KC ends up with a girl he was working for before he became big time (Sophie Bush), Trip gets friendly with a rival's daughter (Cameron Richardson). Later KC doesn't like his team anymore because he always has to play second fiddle to the number one guy on the team, Trip cracks his knee when he tries to help out his brother KC in a race, KC gets kicked out of the team for someone else...then we end up where KC is in the final race facing his old partner and now rival in las vegas for the big competition and his brother Trip, his girl and KC's girl are all there to root for him...Read more ›
It's also a video you can watch with your girlfriend without having to worry about her falling asleep...although it didn't work with mine.
in Supercross is absolutely astounding.the way they flip in mid air and
the heights they can reach.i have a new respect for these people.the
stunts were mind blowing,but very realistic,as far as i could
tell.there are some hot women in this movie,naturally.the acting is OK
and to me,the plot is thin,but that is not the draw for this movie.the
real reason to watch this movie,or any of the genre,are the amazing
stunts these guys can do.to say they are talented is a huge
understatement.i found this movie pretty exciting.it is only during the
dramatic scenes that i didn't like it as much.i just wanted to see
those stunts.thankfully,that is what most of the movie is.if you're a
Supercross fan,you should love this movie.if you're not,you might still
really enjoy it.at the very least,you should have a new appreciation
for the athletes involved.my vote for "Supercross":4/5

"Supercross, The Movie" was never intended to compete with "Gone With The Wind."
The magic of this Action Sport dramatic is the tremendous racing footage at the Las Vegas Chanpionship, the combination of docu-drama (Tyler Evans, and other racers show acting talent) and the nostalgic simple romantic twine of certain plot development that has nothing to do with life today. This romantic magic is from a better time.
The use of impressionism and split screen during parts of the film was well done. There was some poorly photgraphed scenes in the beginning of the movie.
The sound was good. I enjoyed the music soundtrack. The digital audio effects during the races, made "Supercross, The Movie" more extreme than simple realism.
The movie needed to be expanded. It seemed incomplete. I think "Supercross, The Movie" will be better understood and appreciated as time goes on. This film tries some things in a way that is seldom done today. That's a good thing.
An easy-does-it "Southern Cal" lifestyle blends (or not) with the hard knocks of the Supercross circuit. Living takes a backseat all the way to the Vegas racing reveille.
Tyler Evans, David Pingree and David Castillo show natural acting talent. Castillo, Joe Bucaro III and other stunt riders take some chances on their bikes.
Along with this "Supercross" Directors Cut there are several added Specials. One Feature on the DVD shows interviews with the stunt riders and another gives how the stunts are performed. Most "Supercross" cycling is filmed during gate competition.
Director Steve Boyum has made stunts in over sixty movies. Special camera equipment accelerates over lots of yardage with zoom, so this Dolby 5.1 DVD will "bring it" to you here and now with the summersault and lightning sporting theater action of "Supercross."
`Supercross' stars two young actors Steve Howey and Mike Vogel as two brothers who race motorcycle, but as you know, the film is made primarily for the purpose of showing the Supercross action scenes. So if the film is virtually full of clichéd items such as brotherly jealousy, father-like mentor, or big competition that concludes the film, it is perfectly OK with me. I actually do not care if one character gets badly injured during a race and is confined to bed, and the same person shows up again, only several days after the terrible accident, walking and even hopping on crutches as if it's only an ankle sprain.
What really matters is the race scenes, which need more improvement. Don't get me wrong here because I am not talking about the races or the stunts themselves. Stunt-turned-director Steve Boyum shows a lot of shots of the Supercross bikes flying in the air, but he shows alarmingly little concern as to how to present them to us viewers. The camera overuses the same angles and the same techniques (like slow motion and fast-forwarding) over and over again. The shots of the dirt race course and the audiences (both real ones, I think) themselves are shot fine enough to convey the feeling of watching the real race, but as the director shows little skills in narrative, we have to listen carefully to the announcer's voice to know who is who, or who is winning.
Those things deprive the film's actions of the dramatic tension of the race scenes. Watching a flying bike may be a really exciting experience, but you need more than that to make the race truly thrilling and exciting. After all you can watch the real ones at the Supercross competition, so why make a movie?
