A motorcycle saga that chronicles the personal journey of two brothers who overcome emotional and physical obstacles to achieve success in the competitive world of Supercross racing. The brothers' conflicts are magnified by their different life choices and their decision to become competitors and rivals. KC Carlyle is a more cautious rider than his younger brother Trip, who has more natural talent but takes too many risks. When KC gets an all-expenses paid factory--corporate sponsored--ride, a rift forms between the two brothers. Trip is forced to go at it alone, becoming a privateer--a rider without a sponsor. But when a career threatening crash ends Trip's Supercross career, he and KC realize that they must put aside their conflicts, and work together to help KC defeat the world's greatest Supercross champions.

Supercross is an action packed 81 minute movie about motorcross racing. Before i saw the movie, i had no idea what that was - for those in the same position, it's Motorbike racing with a LOT of jumps. Not something that would normally appeal to me, but the shots used and the effects gave all the action sequences a real "in the race" feeling. This was important, since for a lot of the film it felt like the expansion of the characters had been cut out for the action, but was probably a good move. The cameos from professional racers made the film that bit more credible, and the lifestyle of young, enthusiastic extreme sports fans was portrayed with a very realistic touch. The film follows two brothers as they fight their way from being unknown locals, aiming to the top of the profession, and the heady glories of sponsorships. The plot can be cliché, but it isn't aiming for an Oscar. It is made to entertain, and it certainly does that.
