I have little knowledge about the background of skateboarding, so it was neat to see where and how skateboarding began. One thing this movie highlighted was the importance of money and fame to many people, especially teenagers. The Z boys broke apart for fame and fortune but in the end they found out that friendship is the ultimate wealth even though their lives had taken different paths. I wish the movie had gone into more detail about the Zephyr skateboards for those who aren’t familiar with skateboards. There is much explicit content in this film because of the Z boys’ reckless behavior. They ignore the law often evading police, trespassing on property, and skating in traffic. The movie also shows their preferences for underage drinking and sleeping with girls. This film left its Dove approval in Dogtown so don’t bother seeing it.
