Quotes

Bullwinkle: [at Gary Lee's office building, he and Bullwinkle are interviewing Griffin as a potential Rollerboy] I have one more question, Griffin: when and why did you change your mind about us, all of a sudden?
[Griffin levels an empty assault rifle at him]
Griffin: ...I *never* changed my mind about *you*.
[he passes the rifle to Bullwinkle]
Gary Lee: Same old Griffin, huh? Good to have you with us...! You'll have to excuse Bullwinkle; he's terribly loyal, just not very sophisticated.

Haim gets mad props for taking on such a dark project, but the results are uneven at best
3 December 2013 | by (victoria b.c canada) – See all my reviews

(Credit IMDb) Set in an unspecified time in the future, USA has declined and become a country of violence and racial prejudice. Griffin earns his living delivering pizzas while he tries to take care of his little brother. An old friend of his, Gary Lee, is the leader of a gang with big ambitions, the Rollerboys. Gary joins them to help the police keep track of the gang.

I saw this movie on You Tube a few months ago, and don't remember too much about it. Corey Haim's drug troubles were starting to get bad at this juncture. His status of a teen hunk was still there, but it was diminishing. Corey Haim is a very talented actor, and it's a shame that he had to succumb to drug use, and pressures of Hollywood. This was a ballsy project for him to take on. It's set in a post-apocalyptic future, and it's quite a grim experience in all honesty. Haim had yet to really sink his teeth into dark material as of yet, and Haim pulls it off very well. He reportedly did all of his own blading stunts, and I was quite impressed with it. Haim has to deal with a below average script, which kinda negates his excellent performance a little bit, but Haim was terrific in a part that was potentially miscasting for him. Patricia Arquette doesn't have a whole lot to do, nor was she as famous as she is now. This movie is interesting, and never boring, but the script lets people down. I wish they had done more, but it's worth a look for Corey's performance

5.2/10
