Street Dreams (2009)

An American action film directed by Chris Zamoscianyuk.
A young skateboarder practices with his friends while failing out of high school and having family problems. If he does well enough in contests and sending videos, he will be sponsored by a skateboard team.
I was hoping for more skating and less drama, but this wasn't bad. It included critical elements of the skateboarding scene such as displeased parents, shifting alliances with friends and cop trouble. The characters fit the story well and the plot was a little soap-opera, but alright. The pacing was good, with smooth transitions from slow parts to action scenes. The style was not too shabby, with some good editing and video effects here and there. The soundtrack was almost entirely aggressive rap music, which isn't my favorite genre, but fit the movie. I'm rating it o.k. because it was fine, but I wouldn't watch it again.
