Editorial Reviews

LORDS OF DOGTOWN tells the radical true story behind three teenage surfers from Venice Beach, California, who took skateboarding to the extreme and changed the world of sports forever. Stacy Peralta (John Robinson, Elephant), Tony Alva (Victor Rasuk, Raising Victor Vargas) and Jay Adams (Emile Hirsch, The Girl Next Door) are the Z-Boys, a bunch of nobodies until they create a new style of skateboarding that becomes a worldwide phenomenon. But when their hobby becomes a business, the success shreds their friendship. Directed by Catherine Hardwicke (thirteen) and written by Stacy Peralta, Lords of Dogtown is "...a dazzling daredevil ride." (Peter Travers, ROLLING STONE)

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and wild, co-starring Heath Ledger February 1, 2008
After slowly getting over the news of Heath Ledger's death, I wanted to watch him again in one of his movies. Although I like Brokeback Mountain, I prefer this one.

It's the story of the Z-Boys, four teenage surfer friends who in the mid seventies take up skate boarding and thus change the world of sports forever.

Heath is "Far Out!" Skip, a surfer and surf store owner who is the first to recognize the kids' talents. He pushes them (calling him a manager would be a little too much), and makes them grow into what they are to become.
More or less drunk for most of the time and always open for yet another trick to spin off a little cash for himself on the side, he cannot hold them once the success and fame hits.
Big managers' promises of fast cars, the prettiest girls and cash in adundance pull the boys out of his loose grip.
Their friendship starts breaking apart as ambition, jealousy, girls and greedy managers take over.
It is only when one of them (who got left behind) falls seriously ill, that the boys get back together and rediscover what their friendship is all about.

Starring Emile Hirsch as the enigmatic and anger driven Jay, Victor Rasuk as the ambitious Tony Alva and John Robinson as Stacy Peralta (who also wrote the screenplay).

Great camerawork, both on and off the skates, terrific acting, solid directing and wonderful production and set design.
The film and the actors do a great job in transmitting the fun and thrill of skating.
My favorite scene is Tyson, The Wonder Dog, the fun loving skating bulldog who simply can't get enough of the sport(also as an extended scene in the special features - he was not trained to do this but took up skating by himself!).

5.0 out of 5 stars The trailers for this movie were misleading... November 1, 2005
By Cubist
Dogtown and Z-Boys was a hugely successful documentary chronicling a group of wild skateboarders in Venice Beach, California in 1970s. Naturally, Hollywood got interested and wanted to make a fictional version (because hey, no one watches docs, right?) with Fred Dirst (of Limp Bizkit fame) directing and David Fincher producing. Fortunately, someone came to their senses and Dirst was out with Fincher taking over but the budget for his vision was too large. So, the studio opted for a low budget take with independent film darling Catherine Hardwicke, fresh from the success of Thirteen, taking over as director. In an effort to keep it real, Stacy Peralta, who made the Z-Boys doc, wrote the screenplay for Lords of Dogtown and worked closely with Hardwicke in order to remain true to what he and his friends went through all those years ago.

Thankfully, the film's producers didn't raid the WB cabinet for the young cast. Instead, they got Hirsch (from The Girl Next Door), Victor Rasuk (from indie fave Raising Victor Vargas) and John Robinson (from Gus Van Sant's Elephant) who have some actual acting chops but not a high enough profile so as to distract. They disappear into their roles as does, surprisingly, high profile actor, Heath Ledger. He does an excellent job of becoming his character, one of the Zephyr skate shop owners who is a burnt out drunk but has vision and tries to protect his team of young skaters.

The trailers for this movie totally misrepresented it as an over-processed, heavily-edited piece of lunchmeat. Instead, Lords of Dogtown perfectly evokes the times it depicts with unerring authenticity. It portrays skaters as they were back then - stylish and below the radar, just before the sport took off to the wildly popular institution that it is now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, Great music June 4, 2005
By MMAfan
I thought this movie was really cool. I still like the original better but this movie was still good. I loved the music in it. Such as the the Hendrix tracks Voodoo Chile and Fire, Sabbath's Ironman, and other good ones. I didnt ike how they put a remake of Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here in it he credits. The movie was still great and is worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old School Rules... June 11, 2005
By Nemo
In the mid to late seventies and early eighties my friends and I had heroes. From Black Sabbath to Steely Dan, Hank Aarron to O.J. Simpson, and then there were the legendary Z-Boys. The guys we read about in Skateboarder magazine which we anxiously awaited the arival of in our mailboxes each month. Skateboarder Magazine made these guys stars. Especially to kids like us growing up in land-locked suburban Atlanta, GA. The Z boys were responsible for influencing mine and my friends years of skating in the future and for that I raise my glass to them. I got chills while sitting in the theatre and watching this great film which chronicles so many of the things I remember from being young and growing up in the skate culture. From our OJ Wheels to our Tracker trucks, from our Z-Flex boards to our Vans skate shoes (which I still wear while skating my long board) Stacy Peralta and the boys carved a niche that the world can never forget. A great movie for the young skaters of today to see. This was before the days of small wheels and railslides. This is about style and good old fashioned rebellion. The Z-Boys were breaking ground while not even knowing it. Hats off to Peralta for making another great Z-Boys movie.
