You could chug a 12-pack of Mountain Dew and it still might not equal the caffeinated rush of this breakneck 40-minute IMAX film that should lose little of its visceral jolt on the smaller screen. This is the real fast and...  more »

Movie Reviews

Thrills and Spills!!!
Nathan Unck | West Jordan, Utah | 12/24/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"ESPN's Ultimate X is the most entertaining IMAX film that I have seen. It features Thrills galore with amazing stunts done on moto cross vehicles, skateboards, BMX racing bikes, and the Street Luge. The music in the film also provides a rush and ads a lot to the stunts performed. The only thing I didn't understand was in the opening credits, they showed a guy doing stunts on a wakeboard, and I got really excited thinking that they were going to have a segment on wakeboarding. But, as the movie time wound down, there wasn't one. So I was kinda disappointed, but it wasn't really a flaw in the movie. It was very well made. I also didn't like how it was only 40 minutes long because I ached for more. It was a fun film, and I think that it has something for everyone to enjoy. The 75 year old grandma taking tickets at the door kept talking to me about how neat it was. This movie is definitely worth your time. Check it out!!!"

"Bruce Hendricks's did a wonderful job with this documentary on the X-Games. The film has some of the best cinematography I have ever seen in a sports movie. The best segments were the sequences involving Freestyle Motorcross.
These sequences had booming, yet tastefully used scoring for music. The way the camera is used is very nice, the shots are extremely clean and varied; making the films like "Childeren of a Metal God", and "Crusty Demons of Dirt" look ametuerish. The audience begins to love Pastrana and hate Deegan. So there is a sense of characterization in this flick. Still this pales in comparison to Bruce Brown's 1971 classic "On Any Sunday".
The skateboarding sequences are also suberb. Hendricks's is a good story teller, and makes these seemigly bland andrenaline junkies seem like the real people that they are.
The downsides are the lack of naration other than that of the athletes and commentators. It would have been better without the ESPN commentators for their commentary in the movie seemed to be rather patronizing, and at its worst, propaganda for ESPN.
Also the street luge was well shot, but was just style without substance.
Overall a movie defintely worth seeing if you like good cinematography, well done documentaries, or just like guys going all out."
