Supercross: The Movie ★½ 2005 (PG-13)

In case you are unaware, supercross is an offshoot of motocross racing but is held on indoor tracks equipped with gravity-defying jumps. Brothers KC (Howey) and Trip (Vogel) want to become champs but, for now, they are underdogs. KC has to play second bike to corporate sponsor star Rowdy (Tatum), so Trip decides he'd be better off going it alone and gets his own sponsor, Earl Cole (Patrick, the only one with actual acting ability). Richardson and Bush are the chicks the brothers get involved with. The plot may be clunky but director Boyum cranks up the racing thrills and noise level. 98m/C DVD . US Mike Vogel, Channing Tatum, J.D. Pardo, Robert Carradine, Steve Howey, Cameron Richardson, Sophia Buh, Aaron Carter, Carolina Garcia, Ryan Locke; D: Steve Boyum; W: Ken Solarz, Bart Baker; C: William Wages.
