Makes you wish Clark had quit trying to cook up adventures for his cast and made a straight documentary instead.

Tries to say something profound about these kids, while oversimplifying the world around them to the point of ridiculousness.

Steeped in urban-youth woes but gets a bounce from Clark's sense of humor and hope.

The main characters may be refreshingly cliché-free, but almost everyone they meet in Beverly Hills is a stilted cartoon.

What might have been a fascinating, intimate portrait turns into something much less compelling when Clark tries to impose a sex-and-action-packed narrative on the proceedings.

The sexy, scruffy, neo-Warriors pageantry of ghetto teen hunger would have been a lot more vital if Clark didn't have such a class-war chip on his shoulder.

The first half is a striking piece of photojournalism with little dramatic interest, and the second half is a highly contrived narrative that forfeits any claim to realism.

[Clark's] films may be the only truthful ones about some aspects of American adolescence, however we might wish that were not so.

Clark hasn't exactly gone soft: Never before has he shown us anything quite as transgressive as these brown-skinned rebels sticking it to The Man with the devil-may-care abandon of a frontside 360 ollie executed sans pads or helmet.

Very different than Kids. Where the earlier film was exhausting in its nihilism, the latest retains a good-natured charm.

We learn little about who they are beyond who Clark needs them to be: Latino punks from the ghetto who like to skate.

The thought of a middle-aged man lurking around a bunch of kids is kind of creepy, but Clark shows some degree of self-awareness.

When a colleague told me I was about to see a new film from Larry Clark, the director of Bully and Kids, I said, 'I wonder how many scenes will pass before we get shirtless teenage boys?' That's one of Clark's rather disturbing obsessions.

Wassup Rockers evokes some of Clark's fetishistic quirks. But you get the feeling that this time around, he's giving his appealing core cast of amateur actors more room to be human.

Wassup Rockers could have been a spiky culture clash. When it tries to shock us with its alleged realism, though, it is entirely a bore.

Some moments of off-the-cuff beauty aren't enough to mask the creepy heart of Larry Clark's latest look at outcast kids.

More than a decade after Larry Clark scandalized the movie world with Kids, he is still pushing buttons with his lubricious insider's view of teenage life.

This portrait of young South Central Latino boys cutting a skateboarding swath through the ritzy environs of Beverly Hills is ultimately more laughable than illuminating, at times approaching a level of camp commensurate with John Waters.

Wassup Rockers is amateurish, but without the redeeming qualities found in Kids and Bully.

This rollicking day in the life of a band of skateboarding Latino punk-rockers doesn't exude the voyeuristic smarm of previous Clark forays.
