Prayer of the Rollerboys Reviews:

I gave this flick a shame faced 7 (a baseline 6 + 1 because I've thoroughly enjoyed it...twice!) I saw it first in 1991, a full 5 years before I learned to roller blade myself (at the ripe old age of 44) and again last night. I think the mistake made by those rating it so lowly was in taking it seriously. It certainly didn't take itself seriously. Not with lines like (paraphrase) [after a criminal is shot by a cop] "thank God we should take care of him here. I hate court". Or with newspaper headlines that read "Germany buys Poland". Or with a radio newscast describing Mexican INS agents rounding up and deporting American fruit pickers who had illegally entered their country to search work. Any sense of reality exited my mind as I watched them do everything in those skates, I, myself, having gotten hopelessly bogged down in the neutral ground trying to cross the road in my blades at Town Park in Fresh Orleans. The film also had a refreshingly original take on the "doomed future" theme. Instead of the grim setting being a post nuclear apocalypse, we have a wasteland created, instead, by the ruin of the American stock market. And this well explains the sad state of affairs (no cash for police, a greatly weakened government, extensive homelessness, etc.) that is the backdrop for the film. The rollerboys seemed to be a blurry composite of all the evils of mankind since the beginning of time...racial hatred, greed megalomania, anti-semitism...you name it. The visage of the rollerboy gang materializing from the end of a dark tunnel, gliding effortlessly in white trench coats and black rollerblades, their arms swinging mightily in unison instantly named to mind goose stepping Nazis. The two undercover cops, who seemed to literally dwell in their van, making off the cuff quips about the rollerboys were a hoot. True, the acting was, at greatest mediocre but had it been perfect it would have spoiled the film. Occasional lapses into the melodramatic only added savor to the stew. Much of the dialog was so terrible it was not only nice but great. I guess this film will remain one of my guilty pleasures. If it comes on again...I'll watch it again. I only want Corey Haim hadn't grown up so they should create Rollerboys 2.


Despite some nasty reviews I've heard, I think this film is great. It's fun, has an original storyline, and greatest of all, the acting is great, particularly that of Morgan Weisser (Bullwinkle) and Christopher Collet (Gary Lee). The film is definitely worth a look!


Amazingly enough, I think it's cute. Tongue-in-cheek teen flick about semi-post-apocalyptic globe ruled by a racist, drug-dealing, high-tech, self-obsessed, rollerblading road gang. The characters were interesting, the relationships explored to a somewhat greater depth than I expected, and the actors gave it their all.Corey Haim in probably the last thing I saw him in where he seemed to care, establishes nice rapport with the another characters in the film and makes you now care about his life. (As I said, amazingly enough--I wanted to just laugh this film off, but really did like it...)Don't expect Speed or something that polished, but see the film if you would like to have an enjoyable couple of hours where you won't have to think too much.
