Great film for everyone!!
21 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

Amazing film for everyone. Great for those looking for cool tricks and undeniable action. Makes you think and feel at the same time as you see the damage of estranged relationships and the power of rebuilding them through forgiveness and what can be accomplished. The viewer is taken on a journey of real life circumstances and how they can turn your world upside down. The strongest way to open a heavy, shut door, is through an open heart of forgiveness - moving forward to all the possibilities life has to offer. The skate scenes are electric and leaves you saying, "I want to try that!" and with faith, hard work and dedication, YOU CAN! Believing in yourself and the forgiveness of others is a life-changing lesson that all can benefit from.
