Movie Reviews X-games 3d The Movie

X-Games 3D The Movie may be the first 3D movie of the season to fall flat. Sure, it's nice to see skateboards flying into your face and dirt kicked off the screen, Roger Moore wrote in the Orlando Sentinel, but mostly the movie amounts to "a 90-minute commercial for the games, lacking much in the line of drama, compelling characters or story line." Ethan Gilsdorf in the Boston Globe had the identical reaction, writing, "The movie can seem more an ad for the X Games (and ESPN Films) than a real sports documentary." But Peter Hartlaub in the San Francisco Chronicle acknowledged that the 3D effects are sometimes pretty spectacular, particularly the final sequence featuring "air" skateboarders. "Thankfully, the big air skateboarding competition at the end contains all the drama that the earlier segments lack," Hartlaub wrote. "The cameras follow skateboarding innovators Bob Burnquist, Danny Way and Jake Brown everywhere -- from the precipice of the top of the ramp to the medical center underneath the stadium -- and the big finish alone is worth the price of admission."
