in one word weak.
26 January 2005 | by zombie-32See all my reviews

First off I am not a skater.

When I went in to watch this movie I was expecting some serious skating stunts and manoeuvres. Instead all you received was a series of short film sections broken up with some poor animation sequences.

The only real surprise was that Tony Hawks had his name attached to this turkey.

If you want to watch a skating movie then you are better off watching Gleaming the Cube or someone else play a skating game either way you get a better acting, skating and story.

Half the story is simply bland and uninspiring before progressing to boring then dragging itself like a dying dog to the end of the movie it becomes so predictable that it feels like you have already watched the movie even though you haven't seen the end you already known exactly how it will end, and finally when the end credits appear you can breath a sigh of relief that the horror is over.
