Lords of Dogtown Reviews

Page 1 of 8
Joshua Starnes

Lords of Dogtown is an interesting look at the start of an ever increasingly more popular part of American youth culture, but often settles for surface gloss instead of introspection.

Cole Smithey

As the three friends separate via commercial successes afforded them, "Lords Of Dogtown" becomes a distinctly youthful American anecdote about the nature of friendship and success.

You don't have to care much about skateboarding (I really don't) to find the movie exhilarating and engaging.

Long Island Press

Dogtown's testosterone fueled, deeply and sadly affectionate excursion into the contact highs and lows of male adolescence, gets it just right and more.

Film Journal International

A modestly entertaining movie, thanks largely to the efforts of director Catherine Hardwicke and the three leads.

The three leads are superb, with Hirsch probably the stand-out - he and Rasuk do particularly well to suggest more than the script's rather one-note characterisation allows.

Director Catherine Hardwicke grew up in the area where the Zephyr team lived and she gets the look and feel of it just right.

Despite the usual difficulty of people scripting their own stories, the film has an energetic fighting spirit.

A celebratory experience, paying homage to those who, out of a lack of anything better to do,...created an outright phenomenon.

You don't need to know a grind from an ollie to appreciate "The Lords of Dogtown," the story of the birth of modern skateboarding culture.

As exciting as the movie is, it stalls its way to an abrupt ending and feels like it's all been just the set-up, an origin story prepping us for an even bigger sequel.
