I thought it was one of the best cineamatic creations i have ever seen for a 2 wheel flick. I thought the realism of the jet bike was done superbly! The way he handled that at such high speed was awesome!! I truly loved the realism of the ride through the train and the "get off" could happen. All in all i give it an oscar!
























YEAH RIGHT! It blew chunks!!! All in all i agree Ken-- IT WAS FRIGGIN STUPID!!!!

I didnt realize the HOG "Yamaha Warrior" was so fast as to keep up with Leno's bike.

Those sweepers through the desert looked fun though!

This is gonna hurt!

My fiance had me turn it off about halfway through. I HAD to call her in for the Mt Dew vs Pepsi BIKE FIGHT!!! All I could think of was that scene from Breakin' II - Electric Boogaloo where they were having a break dancing dance off.

I rank this movie up there with Leonard Part VI.

Just watched it last night. I must say that I don't understand what you guys have against it. I thought it was one of the highest cinematic achievements of the 21st century. The scene where they jumped up on top of the train while it was running down the tracks was simply stunning. The acting was flawless, such emotion. The two ladies making their bikes do martial arts moves against each other was classically original. I give this movie 5 smileys.

Wow, I watched it the same day as you and was gonna put up a post...no way!!!

Here's my review: The partial comedic undertone that I felt emitting from the main characters was an unveiling truth and much foreshadowing upon the climactic ending. With a love hate battle that join two almost like brothers, I felt that Ice Cube displayed tremendous emotion in....ahh fuck it...if the movie was a girl giving me head I'd tell it to stop because it was just plain aweful. What an attrocity that wasn't even worth watching for the bikes. It's not worth watching for the bikes because they're animated most of the time anyway. What a pile of horse shit. There's few people that should be shot, but all those involved in the making of this movie should be shot. Jesse James should also be rolled off a cliff for showing his face for more than 3 seconds in such a horrible car accident.

It's cheezy but I still like it. It's all about lookin at bikes the rest just doesn't matter....... And what were you expecting an oscar nominated movie like XXX and Fast and Furious, gimmie a break. All these movies suck but especially if you want some good acting and oscar type story line. Just watch these for the cars the bikes and ofcourse the chiks nothing else matters.
