A 1991 short film created by Glen Gurner, The Skid Kid is what the cover boasts as “The crime fighter of the 90’s” as he rocks black chest armor, a helmet, kickin’ boots & acid washed jeans; nothing oozes early 90’s badassery like acid washed jeans.
Is ‘The Skid Kid’ worth your time? Yes it is. This isn’t some indie production or a big studio flick, it’s a film done by a kid who wanted to entertain rather than suck the cash out of the film viewing public. It’s full of charm & honesty that impresses aspiring filmmakers and people who don’t really look at films in a snobbish way. Sure, the film can be riffed & criticized, but at the end of the day ‘The Skid Kid’ doesn’t hurt anyone.
