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.
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.
Note that this Carlton release is dubbed for swearing, as though it's a version shown on ITV in the 90s, simply transferred to DVD - annoying!
