    Noel Holcroft is a foreign-born American citizen working in New York City as an architect. In Geneva, he meets with a respected Swiss banker who tells him he has been designated to be executor of a huge four and a half billion dollar trust fund designed to make reparations for the war crimes of the Nazis. Holcroft's father, who committed suicide in 1945, was a key Hitler financial advisor, who became conscience-stricken about German war atrocities, turned against the Führer, and covertly diverted Nazi funds to a secret Swiss account. Under the terms of the covenant, Holcroft must locate the sons of his father's two associates so they can jointly activate their fathers' account. They battle the sinister forces seem to be trying to prevent them from signing the document, as it is believed that it will be used to establish a Fourth Reich.

This movie is probably actually terrible

Sue me.

It seems to fit in my brain roughly alongside Saved By the Bell, both of which I seemed to have seen far too much of on cable.

It's almost like a super high budget Saved by the Bell, with higher stakes. Slater's character here feels a lot like what Zack Morris would *really* be like outside the confines of G rated, reset button laden Saturday morning kids show.

When they take down the Big Bad, I do wish they could have incorporated the skating without being so over the top. Lol, *literally* over the top. They might as well have given Slater a cape.

An Honest Review

Yeah, it's not the best movie. It could actually be a lot better... but it is entertaining as all.... heck?

Even if you aren't hip to the whole skater thing, this is a seriously fun movie to watch in the cheap 80s action/adventure kind of way. It has a compelling enough police drama vide, even if most of the action is centered around skateboarding... which is also fun to watch.

I honestly think a lot of the distaste comes from the fact that it is capitalizing on what was, in the 80s, seen as a passing fad.

But the story is still solid for what it is. It has a good message about family ties. It has actual character growth. The story is something that Hollywood has forgotten to do lately, make a compelling narrative. But this somehow manages to accomplish that and still, you know, exploit the skater phenomenon that was sweeping the nation at the time.

Watching the Tube

Part Disneyland, part Pizza Hut ad, this (should've been a TV-movie AND cut down) film is mostly harmless, unless someone where to try the impossible skateboarding stunts on the highways. Can't believe I never saw this before since I grew up with a crush on Christian Slater when this film came out.
