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.

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.
