Goofs

Before the first downhill race, there's a close-up of Gabriella as she speaks to Brink. In it, her helmet is buckled. In the next shot when she takes off, her helmet is visibly unbuckled. In the shot after that when she tucks down, her helmet is buckled again. See more »

A Family Favorite
5 February 2008 | by Scars_RemainSee all my reviews

I have been watching and enjoying Brink with my family since I was 10 years old in 1998. It's a favorite of mine and my family and it always will be. I think anyone who enjoys underdog stories will like this one and they should definitely check it out. It's for sure one of the Disney Channel's best releases.

Erik von Detten is great in his part, as well as Patrick Levis, Sam Horrigan and everyone else. The story is very simple but also very fun and light hearted. I also should mention that I really enjoyed the soundtrack to this one as I am a big punk and ska fan. Check this one out with your whole family if you can get a hold of it.
