Family-friendly and feel-good drama
3 September 2019 | by trinaboiceSee all my reviews

While the plot isn't very unique, the story is still enjoyable and worthy of family-friendly view time. The movie is written and directed by Alex Ranarivelo. It won't win any awards or blow anyone's mind, but you'll leave the theater feeling inspired. You can't pre-order the DVD yet, but I'm sure it'll be on Amazon and other stores soon since it had a very limited theater release. If you're into Motorcross, you'll enjoy some of the impressive race scenes. What a great smile Michael Roark has. He did a great job as a soldier, wounded vet, and Motorcross racer.

Actor/producer Ali Afshar did a great job as the loyal friend and comic relief. He actually owns the GMC Syclone that is shown in the movie. I love it when directors throw in little tidbits of interest in their movies. For example, producer Christina Moore appears in a picture as Marshall Bennett's mother. Ranarivelo chose the number 32 to be Marshall's number because one of his personal favorite cars is the Mark IV Volkswagen R32. I liked Allison Paige's feisty personality as Marshall's wife. She was believable as the worried wife, as well as the supportive wife. The movie poster and trailer basically give away the end of the movie. The dialogue and story are both super formulaic and predictable. The close-up scenes with the bike riders wearing their masks always cracked me up because you couldn't see their faces. That's better than having them not wear goggles or helmets though so that you could see their faces because that wouldn't be realistic. You can read the rest of my movie review at Movie Review Mom or watch my video review on YouTube.
