Instead of adhering to the norms of their South Central neighborhood, a group of skater boys opt to bus into Hollywood and Beverly Hills, where they attract local rich girls - and plenty of trouble with the police, jealous boyfriends, and nervous parents. Written by
A huge fan of Kids, Bully and Ken Park I watched this with great anticipation of another masterpiece. Though Clarke is relatively green when it comes to making movies he has wasted no time at all in getting a name for himself by making cutting edge movies which tread where others dare not. Dealing with the subject matters of sex, drugs, violence, suicide, and rape is common these days, but Clarke takes it one step further by dealing with those issues and children. He portrays adolescents in a way no other film maker can, his movies are often gritty and probably provide for the most authentic depiction of youngsters growing up in tough neighbourhoods.
Wassup Rockers could have been made by someone else. It has probably the most ridiculous storyline of any movie I have ever seen and it genuinely has stunned me that the same person who made Ken Park has churned out this waste of a movie. I can only assume Clarke was told to tone it down with this movie and given $20 as the budget and half an hour to make it.
It genuinely is that bad, when it ended I was glad, until I realised I wasted 2 hours of my life watching such garbage.
