The "Herbie fully loaded" of motocross movies
3 September 2019 | by dmillwasupSee all my reviews

If youre a movie fan, this is pretty much what youd expect from a film like this; A story, some okay acting, and actually some heartfelt moments that make you feel for the main character. And in that sense its not so bad.

However if youre a true motocross fan, you will be disappointed. Here's why. Theres not even a mention of any current pros names. They literally call them different names and just refer to them as there number. The entire movie was shot at Glenn Helen raceway even though they try to play it off like it wasnt. There are tons of inconsistencies with the dirtbike racing scenes. From GoPro footage that goes from a Honda (red bike) to suzuki (yellow bike) and that hes actually riding a KTM (orange bike) all the way to literally photoshopping over actual pro race footage. Footage from 250 and 450 classes in whats supposed to be the same race. A two stroke at a pro national!? The only bike maintenance required is lubing your chain. And just so many shots that felt so repetitive. I get its not a youtube video, its a movie with a plot, but for a dirtbike movie, its really bad. Not much riding actually in the movie and for a movie about riding dirtbikes. I had low expectations for the acting, but it wasnt so horrible. However i had high hopes for the dirbike portions of the film, and i was disappointed. Maybe one day we'll have a well filmed motocross movie
