I really enjoyed it! Growing up with the games and then all my friends getting into skating because of the series, is something I'll never forget. They cover skating back in the day, how it was perceived and what was going on in video games at the time. It was cool to hear the gratitude that the skaters have because of the series as well as the bands! If you're a fan of the series, it's definitely worth it. Note: I noticed it was rated "G", but there are some f-bombs and other words.

Amazing movie and very well put together. Loved every minute of it. Brought me back to when I was a kid, watching my brother play this skateboarding game demo we got at pizza hut. Also to people that cant watch it, just use a vpn, you know the things those youtubers are talking about?

An excellent documentary covering the rollercoaster of skating popularity and the explosion associated with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater's release. While detailing the sequels following the first game and discussing the impact it had on professionals, this documentary does a great job of showing the love skaters have for the game series and the craft.
