Storyline

Passionate BMX dirt jumper, Phin Cooper (Joel Moody), wants nothing in life but to attain fame in his sport and get paid doing it. After missing out on a competition when he lands in jail for unpaid citations, he is court-ordered for community service and reluctantly mentors one of the toughest boys, Blue Espinosa (Will Martinez). As Phin leads the troubled teen on exciting adventures of riding dirt trails, big jumps and cityscapes, Blue becomes more than an obligation - an unlikely friend whose secret world of drug trafficking threatens Phin's ultimate dream. Featuring some of the best stunts in dirt jumping by legendary pros and hardcore locals in the sport, Heroes of Dirt is more than adrenaline rush. It embarks on an unforgettable journey into real significance, and the price it takes to get there. Written by Jill Bugbee

Finally Its Here!! A Bmx Movie
16 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

Rad, was a great Bmx movie and still is. The riders of the movie Rad, pushed the sport in freestyle, they were great innovators. This new movie Accelerate,has been a very anticipated movie that people who are into this great sport, have been waiting to see. Regardless of the bike aspects: park ,dirt, street, vert, flatland or racing, this movie is going kick some butt. I see this movie with a more eloquent storyline than Rad. Not to say Rad did not have a good storyline, cause i really enjoyed it. There's nothing much else to say about this movie other than I'm really psyched to see old riders come out like Cru Jones(Bill Allen), and modern day riders like Brian Foster, Steve Crandall, Chris Doyle, Joel Moody, and others. I can't wait to go see it. You don't have to be into bikes to go see it. If you like watching extreme sports,or something that you don't see everyday, then I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
