Time Out says

Thu Sep 29 2005

It's hard to wring much pathos out of lacing up skates; the noxious Xanadu (1980) retains a potent radioactive half-life. But Malcolm D. Lee's wan yet soulful valentine to jam skating, set in Chicago in the summer of 1978, boasts a much more charismatic lead than Olivia Newton-John: hip-hop heartthrob Bow Wow as Xavier, alias X, a good kid from the South Side who skates for his dead mama. When no one's on wheels clapping to Parliament, the film's effervescence fizzles. But it's easy to get lost in Lee's nostalgic haze.
