  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Slap on your pads, secure your helmet, and fasten your goggles, as you are about to take a ride with brothers K.C. (Howey) and Trip Carlyle (Vogel) as they enter the fast-paced, in-your-face world of Supercross. They, however, soon find out that their time spent in the Palmdale desert competing against each other has only partly prepared them for the life of a true motocross racer, but their respective love interests help to smooth out the berms along the way, and the power of brotherly love is once again triumphant. Real-life racer Tyler Evans plays his bad self. (Jack Kelley)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.82:1 DVD picture has a gritty visual style that complements the storytelling. Colors are richly saturated and well-balanced, with vibrant hues, accurate fleshtones, and deep blacks. Sharpness is adequate throughout, although some scenes are lacking in finer details. Pixelization can be a problem with this title, but edge enhancement is limited. (Suzanne Hodges)
