i saw this movie on HBO last night, after hearing from it from my skater friends i decided to give it a shot, well, as a skate/sport movie it was pretty bad the camera was not focus all the time, and did not keep with the skater, sometimes you could only see his foot in the shot cause he was moving too fast and the camera wasn't coordinated, as a movie itself the continuity sucked they went from bowls to half pipes in 2 seconds, the guy fell of his skateboard and broke his arm immediately ( which is total bullshit since i have fell really worst and only some bruises no broken bones), there were 2 chicks in the whole movie one said 3 lines and the other one has to take some acting classes(duff). the plot? haha! no considerable plot. a guy skating and another guy teaching him something about it, horrible editing and an insult to fine skateboard movies (dogtown, grind). In Three words: HBO at afternoon. it's not even worth the try if you don't like skating.
