Movie Reviews

Hallowed Ground
Mark Page | Eugene, or USA | 08/17/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Hallowed Ground is a very good skate film. It has footage of Mike Valley, Bob Burnquist and many others. It has a good combination of street, and vert as well as footage from South America. The DVD version is a must have."
Hallowed Ground has the same spirit as Chin

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Hallowed Ground isn't so much about who can do the biggest, longest, or most technical trick. It's certainly chock full of amazing technical skating, but the soul of this movie is in the joy that skating can bring, not who does it the best. Though not as goofy or fun, it has the same sort of overall feel as Chin. Friends skating together and loving it for it's purity, not for what sort of video game contracts it may bring.The footage is beautifully shot, the soundtrack well matched to the skating. I had personally never seen some of the spots in Brazil, and what Hurley video would be complete without a huge session on Burnquist's famous ramp with the over-vert bowl section? Bob and Lincoln soar while Ben Harper is playing, the skating reminiscent of Hosoi. Black and white plus glorious color footage are both included throughout the movie.Old-schoolers will be pleased with the homage paid to vintage style during Mike Vallely's part, among others. There aren't too many professional skaters around that can session a 10' x 10' concrete square. Mike does it with style and flair, and reminds us what skateboarding is all about. Skaters of the more technical breed won't be disappointed either. Plenty of big, precision skating can be found as well.One of the great skate videos, or DVDs as the case is now, thankfully, Hallowed Ground shouldn't be missed. If you only pick up one modern skate video, make it Menikamati. If you pick up two, add Hallowed Ground to your library.Jason"
