Two young brothers compete in the Supercross, the Grand Prix of motocross racing, as independent racers. One brother is cautious, while the other is talented but reckless. With Steve Howey, Mike Vogel, Sophia Bush, Cameron Richardson and Aaron Carter. Directed by Steve Boyum. [1:32]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A young woman removes her jacket (she is wearing a sport bra and low-slung pants that reveal a tattoo on her lower back), a young man helps her remove her pants (she is wearing panties), she climbs on the lap of the young man and they kiss (it is implied that they have sex). A young woman sits on a young man's lap, they kiss, he removes her top and we see her bare back as they continue to kiss. A young man lies on a bed, a young woman straddles him, he sits up, they kiss, and he begins to remove her top, when they are interrupted.
 Women are shown in many scenes wearing skimpy outfits that include short-shorts, short and low-cut tops, and low-cut dresses that reveal cleavage and bare abdomens and bare legs. Women in skimpy outfits wave the race flags for each event. Two young men take off their shirts (they are bare-chested) and jump into a pool.
 A young man and a young woman kiss, a young man and a young woman hug, and a young man and a young woman flirt and he asks her out on a date.
 Racers are shown autographing women's bare abdomens and chests in a few scenes, and one racer kisses a woman's chest after signing. A young man admires a young woman's buttocks as she walks away from him.
 A young woman says, "you dropped your nuts" to a young man repairing a motorcycle.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - There are many scenes of motocross racing with the riders doing mid-air stunts and jumps: One race shows racers shoving each other out of the way, and one rider jumps into the air, falls backward and lands hard on the ground and we see him in the hospital later with broken bones and severe head trauma. A race shows many bikers on a track, they shove each other, and one runs into a wall and several crash in a pile on the ground, and another race has one rider falling on a turn and two other riders crashing together. During an indoor race several riders run into walls or wipe out after jumps. Three riders speed on a test track and one nudges the other to get past.
 A young man lunges for another man after he is nudged on a racetrack and they nearly come to blows, but are pulled away from each other. Two young men get very close to each other, and they shove and yell.
 Riders threaten each other before a few races and two young men yell at each other. A young man yells at his younger brother.
 A rider speeds up a hill of dirt, does a flip in the air and lands safely.

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.




INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
