Entertainment Weekly
Amusingly, Supercross puts up a fierce anticorporate front, lauding the self-financed ''privateer'' over the ''factory'' cyclist. If this is a joke, few will get it.
The Hollywood Reporter
Its release calculated to coincide with the X Games, Supercross: The Movie is advertainment to the extreme.
Filled with tremendous stunts and well-shot racing sequences, director Steve Boyum's loud, down-and-dirty ride through the world of Supercross motorcycle racing comes to a screeching halt for its many pit stops for Hollywood clichés.
New York Daily News
Unfortunately, while director Steve Boyum is a successful stunt man and off-road biker, his skills do not extend to the relatively passive arena of filmmaking. Somehow, he even makes much of the action static.
Miami Herald
For anyone who digs hardcore motorcycle racing, Supercross delivers enough engine-revving, dirt-spewing motorcross action to satisfy even the most intense adrenaline craving.
The movie's biggest drawback is a failure to deliver what's promised.
While there's no blood to be seen in Supercross, the film is rated PG- 13, due to some crash scenes, a little strong language and some mild sexuality. That's a shame. This movie was tailor-made for 12-year-olds.
Chicago Tribune
The movie itself has no edge. It barely has a movie.
New York Post
A collection of product plugs masquerading as a movie en route to home video.
The most amazing fact about Supercross is that it took three people to write it. Two chimpanzees with a typewriter could have done just as good a job.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Shamelessly cross-promotional "extreme" sports flick.
