Plot summary

Andy "Brink" Brinker and his in-line skating crew--Peter, Jordy, and Gabriella--who call themselves "Soul-Skaters" (which means they skate for the fun of it, and not for the money), clash with a group of sponsored skaters, Team X-Bladz--led by Val--with whom they attend high school in southern California. When Brink discovers his family is in financial trouble, he goes against the wishes of his parents and his friends and joins Team X-Bladz. Brink tries to lead a double life but will be able to pull it off?

I grew up watching this movie.

Nowadays I look back and wonder, "what happened?", for when I was a child I tuned into the Disney channel every so often in anxious anticipation for "Brink!" Today you'll hear most people making fun of Disney channel movies, and it's completely justified. But there was a day when they were the cream of the crop when it came to the 5th grader nation, and Brink was the flagship film. Today Disney is plagued with movies like "Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century" and "The Cheetah Girls" ... well, we are in a dark time. If you can't remember the days when the Disney channel was awesome, it was when Brink hit the TV. If you haven't seen this movie, go see it for the sake of old times, and for the 5th grader in all of my generation. Plus, it's actually a good movie.

Soul Skaters?

Andy Brink Brinker and his band of misfits bring that pure 90's ska nostalgia to a full boil.

This movie brought back so many memories and really made me wish I could bust out my old inline skates and get out there. Sadly, after the nostalgia wears off I found myself actually paying attention to the film itself and it is not as amazing as I remembered it to be. I mean, it's a Disney Channel original movie so I couldn't expect too much, but I found myself laughing at some of the concepts.

You don't want to be paid to skate? I thought that was the end goal? To make living doing what you love! Telling young children that you should never be paid to do what you love is a great message, but why can't we have both? I mean there are a lot of people who make a living doing what they love!

Either way, I'll probably watch this movie again. Yes, the plot is crazy but it's still a reminder of a childhood I miss!

The most decent Disney Channel movie I've seen.

There are some pretty crummy Disney Channel Original Movies out there. I mean Can of Worms was horrible and same with The Thirteenth Year. Both lacked twists in the plot and were just plain "cheesy." Brink on the other hand has more !. First of all, the "extreme sports" idea was great. That's what kids love these days so that's what probably "hooked" them to their televison sets. The music was decent, featuring some recent punk rock bands. Well at least better than The Thirteenth Year's ending credit music! Yuck! Well anyways, Brink delivers a fresh, funny, and realistic situation in which four teens experience a "Rollerblading Odyssey." This movie has got it all: Friendship, betrayal, rivalry, hate, revenge etc. It has all the qualities of becoming an Academy Award winning epic! Um...ok, maybe not. But it is still a whole lot of fun to watch.
