Movie Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am watching this movie right now on tv and it's just so cool! It's set in the future when Corey Haim is a rollerskater and joins the Rollerboys gang to tip off the police on all the bad things they do. While doing this he delivers pizzas and takes care of his little brother. I know many people might think it's a corny movie but to me it's so bad that it's good! And for all you 80's kids, COREY HAIM LOOKS HOT! He's hot enough that you can fry an egg off the screen! SIZZLING! Definitely the better looking Corey!"
It's Not Meant To Be A Rollerblading Movie...

"...As I said this movie really isn't about rollerbladeing; that was just a tie-in to entice us. Remember when rollerblading was really popular during the early Nineties? Anyways, "Prayer of The Rollerboys" is about Neo-Naziism,(at least if you watch really closely) if not; then it really is just a rollerblading movie. If you pay attention very carefully you'll notice that every 'Rollerboy' is let's say white(I'm not kidding; watch for yourself). Also if you pay attention to all of Gary Lee's associates; you'll notice that one of them is Japanese and another, whom Corey Haim's character extorts money from, serves pizza(Italian reference?). And if you pay attention to the pizza parlor propietor(named Pinky) and his attitude towards the 'Rollerboys'; you'll notice a slite reference to Italy's political stance during World War II.

The drug 'Mist' has a secret ingredient called 'Rope' which sterilizes those that use it; which is why Gary Lee doesn't want any of his 'Rollerboys' to use it. Once the weak have been sterilized only the strong will be left; hence "Day of the Rope". 'Rope' is the final solution to the ever plagueing problem. The only opposition the 'Rollerboys' face, aside from the police, is a rival gang called the 'B-13'. The 'B-13' is a gang consisting of every minority and then some. Remember the scene where the truck pulls in and the 'B-13' just start cappin'-off 'Rollerboys'? If you do, watch it again, and pay attention to all the peole involved in that scene. I don't know, maybe I'm just over-analizing this flick.

I recommend this movie because if it really IS just a rollerblading movie, than it kicks ass, because it's a pretty graphic rollerblading movie(especially when Bullwinkle gets his brains splattered by that corrupt cop). If this movie really IS about what I think it is, than this movie comepletely sucks balls. Honestly; how tough does a Neo-Nazi look on rolllerblades?
Either, or, I still recommend this movie...but don't pay more than $10 for it(in any medium, i.e. DVD, Laserdisc, and God forbid, VHS). I also would like to add that this is the best movie Corey Haim has been featured in...aside from "Lost Boys"."
I like this one

"I like this one due to the fact that when i watched it i was well into the rollerblading scene. Its a good movie about a guy who tries to save his little brother becoming a drug addict, on a new drug called 'mist', the punch line is however, this drug makes the user completely impotent. This is a ploy from the Rollerboys themselves to make the America a better place, after its downfall. They call the drugs affects 'the day of the rope'. Corey Haim then comes into play as a hot shot rollerblader, who needs to convert to a rollerboy to save his little bro. By converting he is pushed into a life of sex hungry women, and beating up innocent civilians. This is a good film, but it only deserves three stars due to the fact that its quality and content and not upto todays standards, still i urge you to buy this one."
Very Fun Movie!

"despite some nasty reviews i've read so far, i think that this is a great movie. It's fun, has an original storyline, and the actors performed very well, particularly Morgan Weisser (Bullwinkle) and Christopher Collet (Gary Lee)....The movie has some great skating sequences and they make you want to skate along with them...."
