Great family movie, action packed, funny and full of suspens.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

It's a familiar story with a predictable plot, but an excellent performance by DeRon Horton in the lead and lots of off-road car racing may help this genre movie find an appreciative audience. Horton is very easy to root for. Kevin Dillon is gifted with a role that works for him. The elements are exactly what one might expect from a niche sports drama: obnoxious champion to beat, novice competitor just ripe for giving that champ his comeuppance, and some really nice people trying to rehabilitate a young man before he succumbs to the violence of the street. Product placement in Dirt abounds, threatening to make the movie more ad than drama.
