At times, the movie does go down some rabbit holes, and it is definitely for a niche audience. However, if you grew up on the games or love witnessing the progression of skateboarding, this is a documentary worthy of the high scores it will inspire.

Pretending I'm a Superman ends up feeling like a few disposable DVD featurettes stapled together.

Is as much a history lesson in the world of skateboarding, as it is an example of marketing ingenuity.

Ludvig Gür explores the cultural impact of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater series ... making it clear that this single game, the first installment in the series, single-handedly changed the course of pop culture forever.

Story of the game, but also of Tony Hawk himself. His rise was rather meteoric and two decades later is still the biggest name in skateboarding.
