The movie is a coming-of-age drama about a boy growing up in Astoria, New York during the 1980s. As his friends end up dead, on drugs, or in prison. He comes to believe he has been saved from their fates by various so-called saints.

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

When Piper Cole does a back flip in front of Trip, the crossover between when the original actor for Piper (Cameron Richardson) and the stunt double is obvious. Cameron attempts the jump normally, as if to complete the jump without a trick. In reality, to perform a back flip, the rider would need to lean back quite substantially half way up the jump in order to get a full rotation. See more »
My name's Trip Carlyle. This is my brother, K.C. We're tight, but that doesn't mean we don't compete.

Completely unwatchable except for the nice bodies and faces of its stars. A really trite teenage oriented movie with all the clichés, coming of age, antics and sexuality you would associate with a movie of this genre. Oh, it is bad, bad, bad. I am surprised it was even made. Or maybe I am not....these days practically anything gets produced. Just a waste of time. But I guess many teenage girls would like it, as I said, for its handsome and hunky young stars. Don't waste your time. It is that difficult to watch. Mike Vogel, more blond in this film, just postures and smiles and acts like a complete and total moron in most, no, make that all, of his scenes. It is very, very difficult to sit through the entire mess. I guess if there is nothing else on the tube, and you can find nothing to read, you may want to take a look see. The only plus is that motorcycle and racing fans may find it exciting. Even that I doubt.
