5.0 out of 5 stars Look at Him Gleaming The Cube... 8 Mar 2001
By A Customer
This dvd shows alot of the essence of skateboarding. The acting, although slightly dodgy in places is done very well for a group of teenage skateboarders and the storyline is well plotted. If you are interested in the history of skateboarding or are and old school skater from way-back-when, you'll love this Film. Contents from some amazing skaters, and Christian Slater's part is amazing. On top of the skating the acting of berreavement by Slater is truly outstanding. He plays a Rebellious Teenager trying to come to terms with the loss of his brother whilst at the same time trying to prove his brother's death was not suicide or an accident, that it was, in fact, murder...

5.0 out of 5 stars A film for the shelf labeled 'Cult'. 26 Sep 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Back in a time before mega stardom, Christian Slater made Gleaming the Cube. In main stream terms it was an underground hit, but within the Skateboarding community it was a Box Office Smash. Everybody who has ever stood on a piece of wood with wheels knows about this movie. As well as the real actors it also features the Godfathers of skating Tony Hawk and Rodney Mullen. Slaters portrial of a skater is convincing and with Steven Bauer as the cop you love too hate, they make a great team. Along with a cracking storyline and some amazing skating, you get to see why Slater is the man he is today.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Gleaming The Cube 14 Dec 2009
I purchased this film as a piece of nostalgia really, as I remember watching this film when I was 14 or 15 with a schoolfriend. We were both skateboarding fans and this film embodies everything that skateboarding is about hence the title Gleaming The Cube. Those of you who know skateboarding will know what gleaming the cube means for those of you that don't it means being the best that you can be in skateboarding terms.

Essentially the film follows disillusioned young skateboarder Bryan played by Christian Slater. Bryan lives with his family and adopted vietnamese brother, Bryans brother stumbles on something illegal and is murdered because of this, then we follow Bryan on his quest to find the killers wih help from his skateboarding friends. Lots of great skateboarding stunts abound and the action is fairly good, there is also an appearance by a young Tony Hawk which adds some prestige to the film.

This is a fantastic film made in the 80's which you can clearly see, which makes it look quite dated sometimes. This film will appeal to skateboarding fans but will appeal to fans of the 80's and fans of good thrillers as well.

All in all a fantastically entertaining film that should appeal to most people.

5.0 out of 5 stars An 80's gem 29 July 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Get your Converse Chuck Taylors on and wipe the dust off your skateboard because after you've watched Christian Slater in action all you'll want to do is find an empty swimming pool and grind your board. Brian Kelly (Slater) sets out to find the killer of his adopted brother after uncovering some sinister goings-on at the factory owned by the father of his late brothers' girlfriend. Eager to uncover the truth, there are no lengths he won't go to seek justice. A great story with some amazing skateboarding, look out for the legendary Tony Hawks.

3.0 out of 5 stars Skater Slater 6 Mar 2011
By Amy
Watched this on the box at ripe old age of about 10yrs and from opening scenes of the boys gate crashing an empty swimming pool I was hooked. Fell in love with C Slater and spent the last 16 years searching for the film to re-watch.

Excited to find it on Amazon clicked complete order without a second thought. Have since realised that Christian's skating was probably all done by Hawks (*nice surprise seeing him, and that all the skating was directed by Stacy Peralta) and that there wasn't quite enough of it featured in the film. Other acting a little hammy and plot / script not as gripping as I remembered (but thats probably age perception talking).
However, if like me you are all up for the 80's revival with a little boarding sprinkled in: give it a whirl.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for skating nostalgia
Very enjoyable if you grew up skateboarding in the 80s, if only for the skating, but some of the acting is pretty ropey and the plot's equally dodgy. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic 80's skate film with the Bones Brigade!
Christian Slater looks the part in this film that tried to cash in on the very last years of hardcore skate culture (before the crash in '90). Read more
