Lords of Dogtown, 2005 is a biographical drama film based in Venice Beach, California, (and if you know me well), this is definitely a movie made for my preference. Basically the plot of this film is the story of the coming and making of the newest skateboard, a cruiser, making the rider feel the same carves on flat ground as a surf board does on the waves. The main characters Stacy Peralta, Tony Alva, and Jay Adams, or also known as Z-Boys, gain fame by going into skate competitions with a local skate store known as Zephyr Skate Shop. As droughts hit California, and a wave of heat swarms the Golden State, allowing the boys to sneak into peoples backyards and use the empty pools to skate in. This movie is not only a true story but it has multiple varieties of characters and plot twists that keep your mind engaged on the screen till the very end. I would only recommend this movie to someone who might be interested in surfing and skating. So pretty much what I'm saying is, if surfing and skate doesn't pertain to your interests, I wouldn't suggest watching it. Although this movie is mainly about surfing and skating, it contains scenes of hardships throughout the families and friends. Ending the film in the boys great success to fame and where they are now.
My Movie Rate: 4.5 stars
