Movie Info

WAITING FOR LIGHTNING is the story of Danny Way, the skateboarder whose dream was to jump China's Great Wall on a skateboard. It's a film about how much abuse the body can sustain, how deep you have to dig to survive the challenges life presents, and how high and far dreams can fly. In his quest for greatness, Way continues to shape the very sport which helped save his own life. (c) Samuel Goldwyn

Little more than an extended piece of lifestyle merchandising, a long montage for monitors in sporting-goods shops.

The person we want most to hear from, Way himself, is largely missing. Go figure.

It's enjoyable enough, but how much you like it will depend on how much you like skateboarding and extreme sports.

IIf it's a god on a skateboard you want, a god on a skateboard you'll get in this hagiography ...

Colorful folks and cool stunts abound, but casual viewers may still utter a big "Why?"
