This story is based where the skateboard culture is the most foreign, the Midwest. Derrick Cabrera, like all skaters, has a dream of being sponsored and one day going pro. He is an up and coming skater with all the talent but has the world against him. Parents, friends and schoolmates can't understand how Derrick has so much passion for something that has no future in their eyes. His crew of friends that are skaters is the only place he is truly accepted. But, as he gets better and better, the skater he looked up to the most becomes his worst enemy. In the sport of skateboarding a single trick that has never been done or conceived can bring you stardom in an instant. Derrick has that trick, if only he can make it. As he attempts to make this trick he is faced with skateproofing, a jealous friend and cops who have it in for him. Derrick finally gets arrested for skating on private property. After that his parents lay down the law and try to force him to quit skateboarding. Adding ...Written by
The other two reviews MUST be from the shills. This flick is about as whack as a swift kick to the sack. Just terrible from the floor up; the basic bs you'd expect from a clown like Dyrdek and co.. Typical skate flick plot about some goober who dreams about going pro, but life throws some wrenches. Will he make it? Who cares. Dyrdek (who we are expected to pretend is a teenager lol) gives us a budget rendition of Tupac's iconic character Bishop. And as expected, we get a close-up of PRod's fake teeth ever 5 seconds. I suspect he's collecting checks from Listerine. Soundtrack is trash. Dialogue might be a'ight if your inebriated enough. Some slimy little kid spits the line "I know all about alone time...". There's some ugly buffy who looks like her face got thrashed with a frying pan. The skating is your standardized low impact flip-in-flip-out ledge boringness. It's a real yawn a minute, lemme tell ya. I mean come to think of it, it was so boring I'm getting bored just from talking trash on it. Don't waist your time. If you skate, just go out and skate. Or for god's sake, man, just watch an Antihero video or something less vapid.
