When Brian is sneaking into the WMS warehouse you can clearly see a number of times his skateboard he had throughout the first half of the movie. He then sacrifices the board to blow up the propane tank.
A few scenes later when he is riding in the street with his backpack he has the same skateboard, then breaks the trucks on the police lights. Only then does he replace it for the new black board. See more »
This is the story of a young confused high school punk who loses his adopted Vietnamese brother to a couple of gun runners. What is he to do? Well he could figure out who these people are and when he's frustrated, he could just skateboard while he's pissed. To lighten things up, he could hit on his dead brothers girlfriend.
There are many famous skaters who lent their abilities to this film. This does rank above the break dancing movies ('Breakin'')and the evil dancing movies ('Footloose' and 'Dirty Dancing') of the eighties, but I don't think it comes close to bike movies ('Rad' and 'The Dirtbike Kid')
