From start to finish, it's a story of friendship between 4 street-wise males who don't mind using violence to achieve the lives that they want. They trust no one but each other which is vital to their success as mobsters.

After the skaters are told that they have to head to the intersection of Harbor and Katella, they go into a residential neighborhood. In actuality, Harbor and Katella are major thoroughfares in Anaheim, and the intersection of Harbor Boulevard and Katella Avenue is within walking distance of Disneyland. In fact, Harbor and Katella were the nearest cross-streets to the Cosmic Age Lodge where Vinh is killed earlier in the film. See more »

Ok I know this film is old, but who cares? Let's get that out of the way, it's old it's old it's old. I don't care if it's old. I was 13 1/2 when this movie came out, and I know a lot of people even my age (27) would consider this a dated "old school" movie, but like I said, I don't care, it's still fun.
I was a middle school skater in the very late '80s, and this film brings back great memories. Ok the fashions got old by like 1991, but again who cares? Forget the fashions and just concentrate on the skateboard stunts, they'll blow you away. Legendary skater Tony Hawk is in this film, and everyone who was or is a skater knows how valuable Hawk was to skateboarding. These days I see a lot of teenagers skateboarding in parking lots and malls, it seems the trend has come back since being dormant since 1990. Even though the skating fad died down then, I was still skating as a teenager into around 1995. It was uncool to be a 19 or 20 year old skating back in the heyday of grunge, but once a skater, always a skater. Many times when I see these kids skating today, I want to haul my old 27 year old butt out there and show them how us 13 and 14 year olds did it back in 1989.
