Movie propaganda

Three hot teen skaters (Sean Kennedy, Ho Thi Lu and Richard Wilson) have to escape the law, their school, their parents, their demons and a couple of low-life crims, to realise their burning ambition - to meet world class skating champion, Tony Hawk (Himself), and compete in his skating competition in the hope he'll sponsor them. This journey takes them from adolescence to manhood.

Theatrical report

Skateboard flicks are too much of a niche market to make it big on the big screen and they are full of clichés because there's only so much that can be done with some kids on a plank with some wheels under it, certainly not an hour-and-a-half's worth. Deck dogz is no exception to this rule.

There are some cool stunts, but. Oh, a note to the parents who try to bond with their uncommunicative teenager by watching this movie: not all skateboarders ("sk8ers") are criminals involved in drug dealing, arson, assault and murder. Some are, like any other group of humans, but most have a healthy disrespect for The Law, probably because they're an oppressed minority. Don't worry, but, it's all good.
