A fun biopic. I enjoyed this take on the 70's skateboard scene so much that I wished I was there. It also has a great soundtrack full of some of my favorite tunes.

A bizarre hybrid of addictingly watchable and absurd enough to make fun of. Cool documentary feel, and Ledger is terrific as he sleazes it up as Skip

Decent biopic of the early skateboard scene held aloft thanks to the late, great Heath Ledger who turns in the best performance. As others have said, the movie loses steam about halfway through. Still an interesting, if flawed film.

Even if you don't like skateboarding I think you would like this film.

Heath Ledger gives an outstanding performance. This movie could have been terrible but it was far from it. I was really interested in each character. I love the way they shot the film. The story kept me involved the entire time. It is very raw, daring, and emotional.

The best part of this movie is easily heath ledger, he nails skip's character and voice. Ledger's preformace saved this movie from being a lot worse. The beginning held promise, but the plot and thought slowly left throughout the movie. This movie tried too hard to be popular and it might have been better if they keep the indie, underground culture in mind and making it a more independent type movie.

I liked this movie a lot but I also am a huge fan of skateboarding and found the story of the origins of it very interesting. As for the acting and directing they are mediocre at best, although Heath Ledger is very good. If you are not a fan of skateboarding I would recommend skipping this movie but if you have ever wanted to see where it all started this is a movie for you.
