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.

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: Baking a cake is a lot like friendship. You put a lot of work into it, and sometimes it doesn't turn out the way you thought it would, but it still tastes good.
Gabriella: I told you not to eat that spoonful of frosting.

when you woke up this morning, did you say to yourself "today i'm gonna talk, or today i'm gonna skate!"?
5 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

this film combines action, great characters, a superior plot, suspense and most of all--sports. extreme sports. brink pushes the limits of extreme sports movies with awesome stunts combined with spot on excellent acting. this movie did it all. not only did Sid from Toy Story deliver one of the best performances of his life, but he reunited with sam horrigan and rekindled the acting chemistry they had in the hit "escape to witch mountain." this movie captures the wonder of extreme in-line skating with a way that no other movies has. it also emphasizes the importance of good friends and the need to have honest relationships. "you are defined by the company you keep, and how well you keep it." --ralph brinker. this movie will not disappoint...unless of course you wanted to get it on DVD. it doesn't exist. Disney is cheating the world out of a spectular film directed by film legend greg beeman.
