X Games,The Movie 3D


X Games D: The Movie is a full-length feature film comprised of more than 90% native 3-D content that vividly captures the drama and spectacle that play out every year at the X Games. Featuring Shaun White, Travis Pastrana, Danny Way, Ricky Carmichael, Bob Burnquist and Kyle Loza, the film tells the behind-the-scenes stories of the athletes and the sacrifices they make as they pursue glory and progression on the industry’s biggest stage.

Directed by award-winning filmmaker Steve Lawrence (Down the Barrel) and narrated by Emile Hirsch, the film uses groundbreaking digital 3-D techniques to immerse sports fans into the world of action sports. Whether racing downhill on Shaun White’s snowboard, flying through the air in Travis Pastrana’s Rally car, or preparing to launch down the big air ramp with Danny Way fans will be at the center of the action and get unprecedented access to the X Games and the iconic action sports personalities chronicled in the film.

Dove Review

The 3-D effect takes the viewer on an up-close look at the perils and dangers that these athletes endure in sports. It focuses on an in-depth look at the men that are the pros of snow boarding, skate boarding, rally car racing, and dirt bikes as they prepare for X games. It is definitely a “don’t try this at home” type of movie. With these experts in each of their fields, they describe the thoughts and feelings they endure as they practice and compete. If you are into these sports, you will definitely enjoy the experience of this film. I believe that younger children should watch this movie with their parents because of the dangers that are present in these sports.

We award this documentary the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages.
