Trivia

In preparing for his role as Robert 'Poker' Benardi, actor Richard Wilson actually visited halfway houses and spent time with the homeless. He said: "I spent time at The Wayside Chapel in Kings Cross, just observing a totally different way of life. Us middle class kids are brought up so differently to people on the street. The stuff that goes down just makes you want to vomit. I went to a few places and there's like people shooting up in the toilets. I hung around with kids my age who have had that type of upbringing and I just started to get in their head-space. I think it's very important for any actor to do that. I walked the streets as Poker would." See more »

Great
19 October 2006 | by stilldrivingcadilacSee all my reviews

This film was a great Australian film which got less credit then it deserved!

The acting may not be top notch, but it wasn't too unbelievable and flowed real good.Some people may see this is nothing like teen ages, but actually it is pretty close, so they captured that all well. The Storyline was good and also ended and started good, made sense and wasn't boring. A lot of skating action, but also had a great story to go with it. The characters were well captured, and they showed their individuality well even if they may have outrageous names, eg. Blue Flame, Poker, stickers and spaz. Tony hawk completed this package too with great acting and film presence.

I recommend this movie to teen ages and people that enjoy young men drama.

I suggest you try this movie, I myself have watched it a outrageous 23 times, no kidding, I loved it each time!
