Why was he following you?
I dunno. He was just following me. Maybe he was a pervert.
Oh right, you jumped into the back of a pervert's car? What are you? Playing hard to get?
You know, if my dog had a face like yours, I'd shave his ass and teach him to walk backwards!

Initial UK releases were cut for language and bloody imagery to achieve a PG rating from the BBFC:
[Reel 2] During scene in orchard, after Vietnamese character has pulled out gun, remove dialogue "don't give me a jerk-off hand job" before he loses his gun and is killed (13 mins).
[Reel 3] During scene between man in maroon jersey and boy in blue, after latter has swept objects off table, remove his response "Fuck, no" as he faces away from camera (6 mins).
[Reel 6] After boy on skateboard has crashed through window and Vietnamese man has been shot, reduce sight of his lying on ground bleeding and being held by wife (4 mins).
The cuts were waived in 2000, with an upgrade to a 12 rating. See more »
Alright, the movie ain't ALL THAT, but it brings back warm memories. The whole style of the movie was real cool back when I was 10, and the feelings kind of stuck.
The story line is stupid but the skater-guys are cool. A lot of the acting is poor, but a GOOD MOVIE. You have to look past all the bad stuff and just try to sink into the whole 'nice family' good brother avenging the death of his step-brother theme. THEN you will enjoy it. :-)
