"Cult fave" in my neck of the woods
10 February 1999 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

Amazingly enough, I think it's cute. Tongue-in-cheek teen flick about semi-post-apocalyptic world ruled by a racist, drug-dealing, high-tech, self-obsessed, rollerblading street gang. The characters were interesting, the relationships explored to a somewhat greater depth than I expected, and the actors gave it their all.

Corey Haim in probably the last thing I saw him in where he seemed to care, establishes great rapport with the other characters in the movie and makes you actually care about his life. (As I said, amazingly enough--I wanted to just laugh this movie off, but really did like it...)

Don't expect Speed or something that polished, but see the movie if you would like to have an enjoyable couple of hours where you won't have to think too much.
