Absurd, but Entertaining.
23 September 2005 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

"Riding The Edge" is a fun movie. The plot is about John Harmon who is a scientist. He has invented a solar power satellite. But then he's kidnapped by middle eastern terrorists, the only person who can save him is his son Matt. Matt is a dirt-bike champion who uses his skills to defeat the terrorists while also figuring out who are the spies in the government.

The only problem with the movie is that the second half is too slow. Besides that, The movie is fun. The performances are average. There's one Afghan boy named Lawrence, that's not very believable.

In the end: The movie is silly, but it keeps your interest.
