WHAT PUSHES THEM TO THE LIMITS? From award-winning filmmaker Steve Lawrence (Down the Barrel) comes this astonishing look inside the X Games. Narrated by Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild), X Games: The Movie takes you behind the scenes with six action-sports legends to experience all the sacrifice and glory that come with competing on the biggest stage in action-sports. Pushing themselves and the equipment they ride to places never thought possible - you will get a firsthand account of how these athletes abandon their fear, and risk it all to redefine the limits of the sport. Ride the Superpipe with Shaun White, fly through the air on 2 wheels with Ricky Carmichael and Kyle Loza, race the back roads with Travis Pastrana, and stand atop the big air ramp with Bob Burnquist and Danny Way - for an inside look at what these legendary athletes endure to reach extraordinary heights. Loaded with thrilling bonus features, this is the X Games as you have never seen it before.moreless
