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 »


Gabriella: Well, hold on a sec. Did you really throw that vanilla shake in Val's face?
Brink: Chocolate.
Peter: How did it feel?
Brink: It was cool and it was SWEET!
[Everybody laughs]
Peter: So uhh? Umm...
Jordi: Well, you see what Peter's trying to say is... well...

The most decent Disney Channel movie I've seen.
13 May 2001 | by Nutri-GrainSee all my reviews

There are some pretty crummy Disney Channel Original Movies out there. I mean Can of Worms was horrible and same with The Thirteenth Year. Both lacked twists in the plot and were just plain "cheesy." Brink on the other hand has more !. First of all, the "extreme sports" idea was great. That's what kids love these days so that's what probably "hooked" them to their televison sets. The music was decent, featuring some recent punk rock bands. Well at least better than The Thirteenth Year's ending credit music! Yuck! Well anyways, Brink delivers a fresh, funny, and realistic situation in which four teens experience a "Rollerblading Odyssey." This movie has got it all: Friendship, betrayal, rivalry, hate, revenge etc. It has all the qualities of becoming an Academy Award winning epic! Um...ok, maybe not. But it is still a whole lot of fun to watch.
