Various changes were made to secure a PG-13 rating (for example, the head through the car window; the re-dubbed line, "You were always a punk"). These changes exist in every released version of the film. See more »
This movie was made because of the success of the Fast and the Furious. But in this they decided to use fast motorcycles instead of cars. A can't miss, right! What were the producers thinking when they decided to spend 40 million on this? The extremely thin plot revolves around our "hero", Ford, who is set up for a murder by the bad guy. The guy killed is the brother of our anti"hero", Trey, who of course isn't so bad after all. Then there is a twist involving the FBI cop, but if you couldn't see it coming a mile away, then this is your first movie.
There were many outrageous stunts in this. OK, I could get past two guys jumping a ramp onto a moving train and then driving through the train cars. And racing through a bunch of trees without getting killed. And I can even get past the ridiculous fight on motorcycles between the two girls. But the last 15 minutes where it looked like a video game was too much. It was so silly, them saying this bike could go over 200 mph, and then he does it through crowded city streets. Someone would be dead in seconds from running into something.
But, I must give props to Martin Henderson. He was very hot and I never heard of him before. Hopefully, he'll get more mainstream movie roles because I sure don't mind looking at him for a couple of hours.
FINAL VERDICT: If you like movies with ridiculous stunts, then this one is for you. Also, if you want a good look at a hot new actor, check out Henderson.
