I went into a cinema without a clue what I was going to watch! For the first ten minutes I was hesitant and didn't know if I would sit through the entire movie. I have no particular love for skating but can relate to that ethos from teenage years.

In the end I stayed and began to enjoy the roller-coaster that this doc takes you on.

The use of well sourced actual footage of their childhood/teenage days up to to the pros and after paints a vivid account and perfectly documented time line of their lives and careers. The added PTC's from Tas Pappas and others add that missing dimension and beautifully tie it all together in a classic doc style.

Utterly compelling and keeps a great level of suspense. Really enjoyed this movie. NOW I like skating!
