Thriller, tension and intrigue in this skateboarding movie
This movie deals about a skateboarding adolescent(Christian Slater) investigates his fostered brother's killing. His parents(Ed Lauter, Mercurio) are profoundly grieved. His brother from Vietnam origin is killed by an organization led by a nasty(Richard Herd) but he aware that the store he worked sends arms to Vietnam instead of medicament. Meanwhile a tough police inspector(Steven Bauer) track down the killers. The down-and-out teen has a skateboarding team(Max Perlich) and and he suddenly become involved in several risks, helped by the group skateboarding Trashers.
The film displays action, suspense, thrills and, of course, spectacular skateboarding. The stunts demonstrate their perfect craft in the empty swimming pools of unsuspecting urban homeowners, pioneering a stirring new sport. The picture impresses with its stunts footage with thrilling bounds and leaps. Noisy musical score made with synthesizer by Jay Ferguson. The motion picture is professionally directed by Graeme Clifford. He's a good director with his greatest success : ¨Frances¨ and Ruby Cairo, today directs for television only: Last Don I, II, among others. Another films about Skateboarding sub-genre are ¨Skateboard: The movie(78), Skateboard kid I(93) and II(95) and Skateboard madness¨, though the classic movie is ¨Lords of Dogtown¨ directed with Catherine Hardwicke and with Emile Hirsch and Heath Ledger. For those with teen interest and skateboarding buffs.
