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 »

The setting of L. A. at its minimum
28 December 2002 | by (Brentwood, California) – See all my reviews

This is one of the movies from the Disney Channel that takes place in Los Angeles. The overall picture and result of this movie was good with an exciting climax to the end. However, some of the scenes are predictable, but mainly the movie has created an environment where just about anything could happen, and so it tends to make the situations more realistic and interesting. This movie deals with the lives of some skaters that skate for fun. There is a "bully" in this movie, as is there one in most movies. The bully is not exactly a "bully", but just a pestering person.

The setting of L. A. that was chose would be more realistic if they would have done more congestion in the streets and had some shots with a lot of crowds to give the movie a feel of an urban empire. In the behind the scenes for this movie which were shown over four years ago, described that the cast had to learn how to become relatively good skaters to shoot the movie. In some of the casts' biographies, it shows that some of the characters were actually skaters for a living and don't act but did this for the movie's need of professional skaters. There are some issues that may make this movie discomforting such as how some of the actors and actresses mainly work on Disney movies, so they are easily remembered if you have seen a lot of other Disney movies. What I liked about his movie that you get to see how the lives of high schoolers are like with the sport of skating rattled into their already busy and productive lives. This movie is also one of those movies where the main character or characters have a perfect life, but don't realize it, but not so much as some other movies. The family can also not be perfect too. The one thing that could have made the family better in the film is by having more scenes with them all together. I do like that this movie is interesting and creative in the doings of the characters lives. So, overall I give this movie a 9 out of 10. I would rate it that extra point higher, but I still believe that is could have been just a little bit better.
