Two brothers battle each other for a spot at the Las Vegas Motocross Championships in the high-octane movie, Supercross. Find out if this flick goes big or if it crashes and burns.

Supercross - Super Siblings

K.C. Carlyle (played by Steve Howie) and his younger brother Trip (Mike Vogel) are two very different brothers, who clean pools for a living, while dreaming about riding on the professional motocross circuit. K.C. is responsible, rides his bike with caution and has the hots for an uptight law student (Sophia Bush) while Trip has wild hair, rides like a madman and is crazy for a rival motocross rider named Piper (Cameron Richardson.) The two brothers are tight but fiercely competitive. So, when K.C. is offered a spot on a up and coming motocross team, sibling rivalry takes over.

Supercross - Motocross Mayhem

While K.C. learns that being a sponsored rider on the Supercross tour isn't all it's cracked up to be, Trip enters the pro circuit after his girlfriend's dad offers him a chance to compete as a "privateer". As the two battle each other on the track for a spot at the Las Vegas Supercross Championships, they eventually realize that they can accomplish more working as a team. Supercross may be a bit predictable but it does give you a neat look at the world of professional motocross, where the mechanics and sponsors behind the scenes are as important to as the riders. Mike Vogel is entertaining as the wild and irresponsible, Trip Carlyle, while Sophia Bush (from One Tree Hill) and Cameron Richardson provide some nice eye candy.

Supercross - DVD Features

The Supercross DVD takes a new look at how to present extra features by offering different options on each side of the disc. Watch the flick in Full Screen on side A and then check out a meet and greet with the stunt doubles of the flick. Flip it over to side B and you've got the Widescreen version plus a featurette about real-life supercross competitions.

Supercross - The Bottom Line

If you were planning to go see Supercross for the great motocross action or because you love Aaron Carter, don't bother. The motocross scenes in Supercross aren't all that good and Aaron Carter is in this flick for about three minutes. You'll find better on screen motocross action by watching replays of the X Games or going to watch a Supercross event live. Supercross the movie is still worth watching - but you're better off waiting until it comes out on DVD.
