If you missed your chance to see X Games 3D: The Movie last summer, you can now bring it home!

X Games 3D: The Movie was out in theaters in glorious 3D for only one week late in last year's summer. If you did not get a chance to catch the flick and love extreme sports, you will be happy to know that the movie is coming out on DVD this week!


2D Not Too Bad

Unfortunately, the DVD version of the movie is missing all the 3D effects and the special glasses used to watch 3D movies. However, the main attractions of the film are all there. You get to watch the drama and spectacle unfold at the X Games events and see behind-the-scenes stories featuring your favourite extreme sports athletes.


Included are Shaun White, Tony Hawk, Matt Hoffman, Travis Pastrana, Ricky Carmichael, Danny Way, Bob Burnquist, Kyle Loza, and more. While some of the super stars, like Tony Hawk, only appear in archive footage, others like Shaun White provide an in-depth look at his background and his perspective of the X Games.


There are lots of breath-taking stunts and gut-wrenching accidents to see and the music, done by the same guy who did The Matrix: Path of Neo and the Spider Man 3 video game, fits well in the movie.


Awesome or Awful?

X Games: The Movie tries to show a lot in its allotted 90 minutes. There are lots of great athletes and events to cover and sometimes it is a bit random. Instead of being a movie, it is more of a documentary, meaning there is a lot of talking, which is potentially boring, even for fans. If you just want to watch the tricks and wipe outs, have your remote ready to skip and fast forward through parts of the movie.


The movie really is for fans of the X Games, as a collector's item of sorts. If you are only a bit interested in extreme sports, you can catch a lot of the stuff shown here on TV.


X Games: The Movie Rating: 3


Rated: PG, for extreme sports action and accidents
