- it still gives a real freedom-kick after all these years!!
24 February 2004 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This movie is absolutely fantastic; it's got everything to get that teen-feel going!!! Romance, action, good music, and grreat gear. I don't think they make movies like this anymore, or maybe the nostalgia is just an important factor in these kind of feel-good movies. This thing makes me want to go out & go really fast; -it still gives a real freedom-kick after all these years!!
