A young Josh Brolin stars as Corey Webster, a skateboarder with a dream to skate in the most death defying downhill run in the country called the LA Massacre that takes place in Los Angeles. With a little cash in pocket he heads west where he plans to stay with friends there. New to town when the group hits the seaside beach area set up for skateboarders, he strays into the turf run by The Daggers. This must be a tough group because, well, they’re decked out in black leather and just look tough.
Okay in case you didn’t recognize the sarcasm there this is a movie with 80s written all over it, everything from the slang to the look. Between the punked out make up and the style of clothing you keep waiting for Kajagoogoo or Flock of Seagulls to pop up somewhere. But seeing as how this is LA during the huge punk scene instead you get an early Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Circle Jerks.
Back to our movie. Corey catches the eye of a hot young girl among the Daggers named Chrissy (Pamela Gidley). A bit of flirting and a meet later sets the romance in motion between these two. Unfortunately Corey isn’t aware that Chrissy is the little sister of Tommy (Robert Russler), the leader of the Daggers and a skateboarding champ in the area. Once he discovers what is going on he sets out to keep the two apart but we know that isn’t likely.
A showdown between the two prior to the LA Massacre leaves Corey with a broken forearm and unable to compete.Read more ›
