Storyline

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. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Supercross: Coming from a past Motocross racer, whose sons are grossly interested and active in the sport. I took my 2 boys to see this movie. After watching past with them, days/weeks/who knows how much footage or MB of digital images of just racers and riders, with no intended story line on our home TV with them, I did not know what to expect. I figured I would get much of the same, and hopefully a story to boot. I have to say when compared to some of the other full-length films related to the sport of Motocross/Supercross they made a noble effort at putting together actual film sequences, mixed with some acting abilities to present a story line even though it was somewhat weak. As a true race fan you will pick out some inconsistencies in the splicing of the actual "Clear Channel" ® footage that was used to enhance the film. It is hard to take the racing sequences to seriously when the characters are beating some of the best-known racers in the industry. It might have been a little more realistic if they could have used cameos from professional racers in more than just a passing glance. But give them a break it is a movie. However, for a dramatic effect race footage served its purpose. It allowed them to mix reality racing with drama in a manor where it did not obviously appear dubbed in. Even with the track switches and split screen viewing it gives you the impression that you are watching a broad-casted race.

Yea it has some of the most predictable film clichés in film industry, but I do not think it was directed to earn any awards. It is a story of a very common ideal in the sport. It is the struggle of two brothers K.C. and Trip that are dreaming of making it to the big show in a sport they love. From an amateur level there is a lot of effort and motivation that goes into trying to become one of the chosen few that gets the opportunity to earn a high level sponsor or a professional contract. It also shows you the different methods used to grab the necessary attention. Both methods are demonstrated slow and steady working little by little and on or over the edge going for broke. It also tries to show the kids watching that the ethics of trust, loyalty and perseverance do pay off.

If your a race fan, you should enjoy it just for the fact that our sport has climbed one more rung on the latter, to more public recognition. Hopefully we will get the attention that the sport deserves. As a parent, it is a movie that you can stand to sit through with you kids and spend a little time with them. Trust me the kid's will like it and more than likely you will be buying a copy when it is released for home theater.
