Watch Rad - Alternative Versions.
Before the huge X-Games explosion of the late 90s, there was another
where extreme sports thrived; The 80s. Like any fad, there were numerous
exploitation movies based on it. Thrashin was the cream of the crop to
focus on skateboarding, but when it came to BMX there was a real debate.
Was it BMX Bandits or Rad? In my mind, there has never been a doubt.
BMX Bandits is pretty good, it can't even come close to Rad. Likely both
films spawned hardcore punk bands named after the movies, and Rad the
is far superior to BMX Bandits. (Although really neither are that
So what makes Rad so good? To start, the star power: a pre-Full House
Laughlin is the love interest of our hero Cru, Talia `stop calling me
Adrian' Shire has a great turn as Cru's mom, and veteran character actor
Walston is hilarious as a crankity old bike shop owner (`The world would
a lot better off without kids'). The movie also has one of my favorite
scummy villains of the 80s, Jack Weston of Dirty Dancing, Short Circuit
and Can't Stop the Music (the fictionalized Village People biopic). With
cast this great you know you're in for a treat.
The next key ingredient of Rad is the stunts. Instead of hiring BMX
stuntmen and only using them for stunts, Rad gives them roles, playing
themselves. It is set around a fictional BMX race called `Hell Track'
it draws some of the best riders from around the world. It is always a
special treat seeing some of my favorite riders of yore on the screen
with Cru. It gives the movie an authentic feeling. It also has
stunt scenes in the opening credits where they just let the riders do
thing and they really show off their skills which are highlighted by
interesting angles and slow motion.
Another great thing about Rad is the soundtrack. It's the typical
teen targeting soundtrack full of various genres aimed to get kids
attention; rock, dance, new wave, even some ballads. They all work
and you'll be humming the tunes long after the movie has stopped. The
`Send Me An Angel' (which was later used to great effect in the Fred
vehicle / Nintendo commercial The Wizard) is especially great and has
its way onto mix tapes of mine ever since the I first bought the
in 87 with it's catchy, haunting synth line.
All in all, Rad is more than just a fun trip down nostalgia lane. Even
you haven't grown up in the 80's or gotten caught up in the BMX craze, it
still a lot of fun. And besides, what other movie do you get to see Ray
Walston give the middle finger with such conviction?
