I can't wait for it to be released on DVD!!!
Ginny
It's funny in a sarcastic sort of way, and its something that we all can identify and find humorous.

I recommend this movie for those who haven't seen it.

Gleaming the Cube is a great action flick if you're a fan of the typical 80's high flying intense action with weak plots. If you were a skateboarder around the time this film was released like myself, or a skater period. You will uphold this movie with high regard. This movie inspired so many people in the late 80's to start skateboarding. It introduces the intriguing and exciting culture of skateboarding paralleled to an action/mystery plot. The skateboarding scenes were shot well...due to the skateflick cinematography guru, Stacy Peralta. There were plenty of scenes with monumental tricks such as Natas Kaupas's famous ollie into the bed of the pickup truck. If you watch the movie today you can pinpoint certain mistakes that should have been edited. Like the poor stunt double shots ( you can tell that one stunt double is Mike McGill and the other guys on the streets are Rodney Mullen and Natas Kaupas). You also can't even forget about how they tried to actually make us believe that the Mike McGill skateboard and the skinny freestyle board with the same graphic were the same board...yeah right! Also, it's pretty funny, that whenever you see Christian Slater trying to skate he pushes goofy footed mongo. But all of his stunt doubles pushed regular footed. It's funny in a sarcastic sort of way, and its something that we all can identify and find humorous. But that's what makes this movie a classic amongst the skate population. It's something that all of us can immediately relate to. This is a must have for any real skate heads out there. It will immediately cause you to reminisce about a time when skating was genuinely all about having fun.

I love this movie! As a kid I used to watch this over and over and be in absolute awe of these skateboarders. Okay, I admit having a crush on Christian Slater as well... But, I am assuming it was more than that because I watched it 5 billion & 1 times or so it seemed. I had no clue they had brought out the DVD until it was too late. I had to buy it at a higher cost used. (Although it looked brand new.) It was well worth it, but now everyone wants to know how I got it. I wish the company would re-release this DVD again so that more people can buy it. C'mon! You get to see Tony Hawke when he was this gangly young teenager!!

The skate scenes alone merrit this movie great. In it's day it was a great skater movie. With new and improved DVD's, and videos on skating it has lost a little. But in the "B" movie world it's ranked up there at the top of the list with the rest. Some plot lines are ridiculous, but just to check out the underground bedroom, the scenes with a young Tony Hawk, and the skateboard we all wanted...C'mon admit it! Rent it, Burn it, love it! "B" movie greatness!

I first saw this film about five years ago. It was about two o'clock in the morning and I thought "cool Christian Slater, I'll check this out". So I sat down and chilled out, letting the story just draw me in until, suddenly, I realised what a great film it was. It's got lots of character and action and the skate choreography is the best I've ever seen.Unfortunately it was unavailable on video at the time and it gradually erased itself from my memory. That is, until I was talking to a skate buddy of mine who asked me if I had ever seen this film.
Regenerating my interest, I began searching for the film on DVD sites, but I was beginning to lose hope. But then I found it and I must say this is one of the best films I have the honour of owning and is a big hit with my friends. It definately benefits from being on DVD - the picture is really smooth and detailed, the sound is fantastic and it'll never wear out.Not to mention, unlike other companies who release old films as they are, this DVD has special features: not only the trailer and bios but interviews with the skaters, a documentary and some interesting facts about the film.
All in all, not only is this a great demonstration of what DVD can do by giving life to an old film, but a fantastic film which, to me and my friends, will never be forgotten.

This is a great movie for skaters and non skaters. I'm a skater myself and I think its the best I've seen so far. In the movie, Christan Slater skates with his friends every day and his adopted brother finds out something strange at work and gets killed, so Christan Slater tries to find out who did it. It has sweet skating in it including pro skaters Rodney Mullen, Tony Hawk, Mike Vallelly, and others. The story is interesting and will pull you into it. It might take a while to understand it, but it will all fit together. I recommend this movie for those who haven't seen it.

This movie was awesome when I first saw it, but I was 13. I recently bought this movie for my younger brother because he's into the skating thing and there aren't many movies like this being made. As I was watching I noticed the acting to be very mediocre but the plot was pretty solid.
The best thing about this movie is the skateboarding celebrities doing a little acting. Tony Hawk being one of them. There's a lot of "old school" skate tricks going on and just looking at the huge boards they used shows how much stuff has evolved.
Overall I think this will appeal to the younger teen audience. If you're interested in that genre though, this is a must have classic.
