To say that this movie is good is an understatement. From beginning to end, it keeps you engaged. This movie takes you out of your own bubble and makes you realize how challenging life can be sometimes. It shows you the importance of family, how passion, drive, support, and encouragement can change your entire life. It will make you laugh at times, it will make you feel good at times, and you can be sure, it will make you cry.
Being a movie with a heavy BMX vibe, you may ask yourself... "is this movie for me?" (especially if you aren't necessarily into the sport). It is! Besides being fun to watch, the BMX angle is worked into the story in a manner that is exciting and relatable to everyone, not just BMX lovers. The movie is more a narrative about John's experiences through life as a whole, and how being introduced to BMX HELPED shape his life.
If you know John, you know that this film has been a long time in the making. The entire cast is really great in this, especially Ludacris as John's foster/adoptive father. Give it support, spread the word, and watch it for yourself- you won't be disappointed.
