Storyline

Andy "Brink" Brinker and his in-line skating crew--Peter, Jordy, and Gabriella--who call themselves "Soul-Skaters" (which means they skate for the fun of it, and not for the money), clash with a group of sponsored skaters, Team X-Bladz--led by Val--with whom they attend high school in southern California. When Brink discovers his family is in financial trouble, he goes against the wishes of his parents and his friends and joins Team X-Bladz. Brink tries to lead a double life but will be able to pull it off? Written by Anonymous

Goofs

Before the first downhill race, there's a close-up of Gabriella as she speaks to Brink. In it, her helmet is buckled. In the next shot when she takes off, her helmet is visibly unbuckled. In the shot after that when she tucks down, her helmet is buckled again. See more »

Quotes

Brink: Val and his crew were dissin' us. We started givin' 'em beef right back, but they wanted to hit it right there at school. Clearly, we couldn't step off, so we had to battle.
Ralph Brinker: Don't they teach English at your school? What am I askin' you for? You haven't been there long enough to find out.

I grew up watching this movie.
29 October 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nowadays I look back and wonder, "what happened?", for when I was a child I tuned into the Disney channel every so often in anxious anticipation for "Brink!" Today you'll hear most people making fun of Disney channel movies, and it's completely justified. But there was a day when they were the cream of the crop when it came to the 5th grader nation, and Brink was the flagship film. Today Disney is plagued with movies like "Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century" and "The Cheetah Girls" ... well, we are in a dark time. If you can't remember the days when the Disney channel was awesome, it was when Brink hit the TV. If you haven't seen this movie, go see it for the sake of old times, and for the 5th grader in all of my generation. Plus, it's actually a good movie.
