“The first hour-fifteen of this snore-fest is only slightly less painful than having teeth pulled with a pair of pliers.
“ Plenty of rollerblading action to keep the adrenaline pumping, along with Mitchell's Zen-philosophical outlook on life, earning the ire of many who find him annoying.
“ An eye opening, light hearted action packed ride...
“ The plot is typical 90s fish out of water garbage and predictable to boot.
“ This is the worst movie I've ever seen.
“ It also ends up being enjoyable by many different age groups.
“ Watching a young Jack Black and Seth Green in a movie together is pretty entertaining and the humor is great!
“anyways I enjoyed it and I would recommend it to anyone after a night out getting drunk as a movie to sober up to.
“ Very lightweight and very enjoyable.
“ Shane McDermott is a story of his own, with his intense eyes and killer smile he is totally invincible to all those Cincinatti bullies!!
“ It was a really intense race and the crashes looked pretty realistic.
“ The ending racing scene is exciting and thrilling.
“ This has to be one of the most pointless and, generally speaking, poorly acted movies ever made.
“ This movie is predictable from start to finish.
“ If you don't go into this movie with overly high expectations, but just go with the flow, this movie can be very enjoyable.
“ The action set piece, which makes up for the entire last third of the film, is really an exciting adrenaline rush.
“ A High School skater movie, but well done and engrossing.
“ This enjoyable yet predictable teen movie is about rollerbladers in Cincinnati that race down Devil's Backbone.
“ Mitchell has to find a way to adjust, but that's pretty hard to do when you're dating your adversary's sister in that old fashioned Romeo and Juliet cliche.
“ I didn't like the film, but then it was worth the watch.
“ Two other reasons to like this flick are the always delightful Edie McClurg and Stewart Copeland's rhythmically exciting music.
“ While Mitchell's personality is on par with a Disney prince he's still an enjoyable character for the most part.
“ Bad acting, dull, boring, and monotonous.
“ With all that aside, it is a rather enjoyable movie.
“ Forget the fact that this movie is your typical 1990's pre-teen romantic comedy, forget the fact that the movie is dull and really has no plot.
“ Devil's Backbone is essentially a race throughout the city of Cincinnati, quite thrilling in that the danger is always present as the rollerblading teams have to dodge cars and winding curvy roads.
“ Very Predictable .
“ But the movie was really entertaining, to say the least, and Seth Green was awesome.
“ A thoroughly enjoyable film.
“ This movie is so campy, but is so damn entertaining.
“ Very Enjoyable .
“I highly recommend it!
“ its still entertaining!!!
“ But I thought the movie was way too predictable and a little harsh in certain scenes such as the dating scene, and the "mooner" scene, so when I recently saw it again on cable with my niece I thought about how poor of a movie this was when it first came out and how poor it still is now.
“ Adults will be bored to tears.
“ I found it very entertaining and engrossing.
“ Instead this surfing/roller-blade romp is an entertaining, fun and realistic story of teenagers coping with peer pressuresomething we can all relate to.
“It's a great comedy and entertaining, teens will enjoy it especially the skating.
