The movie is a coming-of-age drama about a boy growing up in Astoria, N.Y., during the 1980s. As his friends end up dead, on drugs or in prison, he comes to believe he has been saved from their fate by various so-called saints.

Alexandra Nicole Hulme,
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.

The "450 Nami" bikes, ridden by K.C and Rowdy, are in fact just dressed up Honda 450's. See more »
During the Florida competition Trip's goggles vary between being Scott in one shot and Dragon in the next. This occurs throughout the race but is especially obvious on the line-up when Trip puts his goggles on. See more »
My name's Trip Carlyle. This is my brother, K.C. We're tight, but that doesn't mean we don't compete.

The Title, "Supercross" is an excellent title and they couldn't have picked a better one. From beginning to end there is full out, full throttle action. There could have been a little more dialog, but all in all I decided to rate my vote on this movie as an 8 out of 10. This movie reminded me of the life of Ross "Rollerball" Pederson and his brother Aaron Pederson. Anyone that knows Supercross / Motocross would know or would have heard of Ross Pederson. Ross ruled the circuit for a decade, and K.C reminded me of him, having pure skill. Trip reminded me of Aaron Pederson, as he had so much guts. But soon in Aaron's career he had to retire due to breaking both Femurs in his legs. I wonder if this movie was partially inspired by them. There is a lot of action which made this movie good.
