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
I don't know where to start with the plot... it's very unrealistic. The protagonist gets put in jail for doing flat-ground tricks at some public plaza spot and fleeing from cops (over said ''illicit'' riding). It's almost like the person who wrote the movie never watched BMX videos like ''Little Devil - Criminal Mischief'' or ''FBM- Albert Street''. The stuff this protagonist gets in trouble for is small fries compared to stuff real BMX'ers do. Just to reference real life, Anthony Panza broke into Splish Splash Water Park and rode the water slides on his bike causing thousands of $$$ damage to the fiberglass and only got a week community service.
The two ''Drug Dealers'' are the most comical characters in the whole movie. They remind me of Harry and Marv from home alone, but less funny and memorable. They probably tried to make these guys menacing but the acting is so cheesy.
The whole movie lacks focus, it's all over the place. I barely understood what the drug heist at the party was about.
Steve Crandall playing a police officer near the end was fun to see.
I got all the little BMX references they put in the movie as a form of fan service. But for your average Joe this movie is a 2.5/10 at best.
BE PREPARED FOR THE CHEESE, EVERYTHING IN THIS MOVIE IS CHEESY GOOP!
