Brink! (1998 TV Movie)
User ReviewsReview this title
P.S. Brink is f****** awesome!
This is by far the best movie that Disney Channel has made. It's a movie that older audiences can enjoy. The movie never gets too corny like other shows on the Disney channel. The cast is great. The acting is good. Sam Horrigan(Val) does a great job acting evil which makes the movie not corny. The directing is amazing for a Disney T.V. movie. Great camera and music use. We all know Disney likes to have happy endings and yeah this one happens to have one too but it has a pretty cool intense ending. This is a movie I don't mind watching again.
Overall Rating: 7/10
Erik von Detten is great in his part, as well as Patrick Levis, Sam Horrigan and everyone else. The story is very simple but also very fun and light hearted. I also should mention that I really enjoyed the soundtrack to this one as I am a big punk and ska fan. Check this one out with your whole family if you can get a hold of it.
I'm glad to see that this movie is still shown from time to time on this New, Stupified Disney Channel. This was played a lot on the Old Disney Channel (I remember sitting at home watching this on the old channel, thinking how awesome it was watching it). This movie shows that if you are stuck between a rock and a hard place, you should make a very good decision about how you want your life (as well as your friends) to be.
"BLINK !!!!!" is a wonderful film to watch, if you ever catch this soon enough.
uhm comments on the movie itself, erik was cute yeah, and the movie itself was a little better ( story wise and etc,) comparing to the rest of the disney originals ..
The setting of L. A. that was chose would be more realistic if they would have done more congestion in the streets and had some shots with a lot of crowds to give the movie a feel of an urban empire. In the behind the scenes for this movie which were shown over four years ago, described that the cast had to learn how to become relatively good skaters to shoot the movie. In some of the casts' biographies, it shows that some of the characters were actually skaters for a living and don't act but did this for the movie's need of professional skaters. There are some issues that may make this movie discomforting such as how some of the actors and actresses mainly work on Disney movies, so they are easily remembered if you have seen a lot of other Disney movies. What I liked about his movie that you get to see how the lives of high schoolers are like with the sport of skating rattled into their already busy and productive lives. This movie is also one of those movies where the main character or characters have a perfect life, but don't realize it, but not so much as some other movies. The family can also not be perfect too. The one thing that could have made the family better in the film is by having more scenes with them all together. I do like that this movie is interesting and creative in the doings of the characters lives. So, overall I give this movie a 9 out of 10. I would rate it that extra point higher, but I still believe that is could have been just a little bit better.
Brink has problems with his friends in the movie, there's another realistic part of the movie, but really no fighting in the movie, they talk stuff out, they don't do physical fights.
The actors were great, like Erik Von Deeten, Patrick Levis, ect. The girl who played Gabriela how ever you spell it, proved to girls they can skate if they really love to skate, there was really no steriostyping in this movie and that's good for BOYS!!!!!!!
If you haven't seen the movie you so got to see the movie, it's on disney channel, or it's on VHS at stores now. If you see the movie put a comment on here. I BET YOU WILL LOVE THE MOVIE SOO MUCH!! BECAUSE I DO AND A LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE DO TO!!
So what I'm saying is give the movie a chance, you will probably like how it teaches kids morals, about family, and never giving up on your dreams.
I could talk about this GREAT MOVIE all freakin day!!!.
SO IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE MOVIE, WATCH IT WHEN IT'S ON!
