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.

"Supercross, The Movie" Finishes The Event
23 August 2005 | by brentnewhallSee all my reviews

To the critic who exited the theater halfway through the movie, "You really missed it."

"Supercross, The Movie" racing photography at the Las Vegas Chammpionship event is the best sporting cinematography of any motion picture that I have ever seen. Super vivid and intense plastic.

Is there any better quality sports film production than later stages of "Supercross, The Movie" racing footage? Extreme close-ups, sudden slow-mo, chrome, other digital effects, aerial jumps and tight action shots are framed with excellent form detail and clarity.

The Director made some mistakes. He could have used Hollywood draw like Aaron Carter, and Sophia Bush for more than only quick supporting shots. He could have included a lot more Supercross racers, and expanded on character development. He could have made more of a total movie, and it would have been interesting for other racers to have some lines.

The camera work in the beginning of "Supercross, The Movie" is inconsistent at best. The digital sound is consistently excellent.

I liked the audio effects during the event races. The exaggerated sound is in keeping with the New York Film School style and look of the better half of the film. I even liked the framing cut aways. Not to many film makers have the courage to do something that far out of the generic mainstream.

Granted, several of the dramatic (or lack there of) scenes needed to be re-done. It is like they began the project with a total lack of organization, and filmed only one take.

Even so, the "SoCal" "seventies lifestyle" approach of what little character development there is found its mark. The storyline is fine, it is just that there is such a lack of fine tuning.

The good parts of the film were so extra over the top that they made the beginning more than survivable.

I hope the next time around they keep the excellent sight and sound quality of the final racing events, and put together better Directorship of the back-in-time lifestyle dramatic intention
