I straight up did not expect this movie to be near half as good as it was. I was coming in expecting some generic sports movie they began cranking out in the 80s and 90s. In part it was but at the same time it was also part gang rivalry part west side story/ Romeo and Juliet types. With skateboards!
If I’m going to be completely honest the whole reason I watched this movie is because Brooke Mccarter(he plays Paul in the lost boys) but ended up legitimately enjoying the film!
Ok so you got the Capulets and the Montagues- I mean the sharks and the jets- I mean the Ramp locals and the daggers.
The ramp locals are more what you’d expect out of skaters, bright colors and Santa Cruz stickers, neon and the ‘I say gnarly every six seconds’ look
While the daggers, I shit you not is straight up just a Punk gang but on skateboards (real scary guys-) with pretty boy guyliner , also known as hook, as the leader
So naturally team gnarly’s resident pretty boy gets with Guyliners sister, this only adds to the existing rivalry and the fact they’re all going to complete in the same Downhill competition. With a name like “the massacre” you can guess.
So the story is again, kinda basic it’s a lot more skate montages then it is character building (like Hook is straight up the bad boy protective brother ™️ trope) he literally konks his head and they end and is all “my bad, we good bro?” Lmao. However I’m not asking for any complexity as the characters we get are surprisingly pretty fun in their dynamics. We don’t get other daggers named Past Monk and velvet (yes that’s her name) ￼
However we do with the locals. They are my boys and I’ll die for them.
The best friend ™️
Basically the leader (as Corey doesnt live in LA for some reason)
Literally what you’d expect but I love him
“whoo hoo” “man” “gnarly” “dude-.”
Sneaks drinks, very poorly.
Resident dumbass and sweetheart
“My dads going to kill me”
A literal child
He switches between looking like a young boy and a 30 year old lesbian
I’m assuming someone’s little brother?
The music also is ? Amazing? I like the fucking extended chase scenes on skateboards and just shsikskskskskwk you just have to watch the movie man. Like it got me invested in skating? I forgot people were super super into it as a sport? I’ve seen some people around or Carry a board in school but most people just wear brand names now days idk.
1000/10 greatest movie. Lmao
Oh and the main charecter looks like this:
Oh- and HES FUCKING THANOS! I’m not kidding
