Movie Reviews

A painful, but realistic look at a tragic story
Jim | San Diego, CA United States | 01/01/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"As a friend of Mark, I was very skeptical that anyone could tell his story. But I was impressed that the movie portrays Gator as a real person, and not just a celebrity gone bad. It captures the energy and culture of skateboarding in the 1980s, and follows Gator's life from his childhood until his incarceration for murder in 1991. It makes no assumptions or judgments, and tells the story through friends, family, and an interview with Gator while in prison.

It's a must see if you're a skateboard fan, but you'll appreciate the power of the story even if you know nothing about skateboarding."

"Tragic story of someone who had it all, looks, money, fame, fans; and when he lost it all, he turned to destruction of not only himself, but an innocent.

Will love this movie if you grew up in the 1980's."
What of the desceased?

"Interesting movie but I'm a little puzzled. On one hand, the movie very accurately portrays the 80's skateboard scene (brings back lots of great memories especially clothing styles). It's easy to get caught up in the excitement just like the dogtown documentary. On the other hand, very little is mentioned about the girl who was killed by Gator. Her skull gets more air time than any video footage or stories of her life. What of her background? Her family? Her dreams? Why should it only be about Gator? Lastly, Jason Jesse is hilarious.
