When it comes to Rodney Mullen and Daewon Song, do you really want to see anyone else? Us either... oh well. You really just want to see then go head-to-head and kill trick after trick. However, marketing geniuses have to get involved to maximize the profit. You'd think that Rodney and Daewon alone could sell this DVD with little problem... and I'm sure they could. Still we are given the chance to see a raft of other skaters from Darkstar, A-Team, Blind, World Industries and Deca.

The experience is much like renting a killer Hollywood movie from your local video store. You've got beer, food and a dying need to see the flick you rented. First you clean the disc because most knobs who rent DVDs have a tendency to scratch the Hell out of them before returning them.
Side note: it's a DVD, not a frisbee. Anyway...

So you and your crew is drunk, fed and raging to see a cool flick. So, what happens next? Four hundred coming attraction trailers... and you can't skip over them on the DVD. CRAP! All you want is to see the movie and instead you are forced to sit through trailers for movies you're never gonna want to watch!

My point is - and yes I do have one - is that Rodney and Daewon are the main attraction to this disc. You hardly want to see anyone else. The wait is worth it since the footage of these two guys is stunning - they completely defy many laws of physics. Owning this DVD is essential to your survival... or at least a damn good DVD.

There are also additional interviews with Rodney and Daewon at the end. Each guy gets a chance to tell it all.
