Modus Operandi
2000, 34 minutes
Current Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Modus Operandi, which is Latin for "mode of operation," is Transworld's 10th video. The soundtrack is mostly techno and hip-hop and the skating is predominantly street, save a few minutes of vert here and there. The video is about a half-hour long and features recognizable faces like Mike Carroll, Marc Johnson and Brian Anderson.

With a line up as talented and diverse as this, as well Transworld’s reputation for producing quality videos, Modus Operandi, not surprisingly, is a video well worth watching. Marc Johnson’s part is both creative and stylish, incorporating smooth skating with very original lines and trick selection. Chany shows off his diverse skills (vert, street, rails etc.), but his Expedition team members seem to dominate his part. To me, this was due to Chany's lack of footage; although it was quality, half of the slow mo'ed bangers featured his fellow team riders rather than him. Carroll's part follows. His lines are priceless, performed with such ease and style, and provide the best part in the video hands down. The music blends with the parts and the commentary during the skating is an interesting accompaniment to the overall feel to the individual parts. The bottom line: this video rocks.

It's hard to call this an outstanding vid and at the same time it's hard to say it isn't great. The skating is awesome and the music is very well chosen to fit the atmosphere. While it's fun to watch and decent to view in order to get into a good skating mood before a sesh, it doesn't have anything to push it over the edge and make it hugely noteworthy. As always, Transworld does a wonderful job of giving insightful commentary and makes Modus most worth buying just to hear great minds in skating like Marc Johnson and Brian Anderson wax philosophical. If you're looking for something to blow your mind, this video isn't for you, but if you're looking for just some general, stylish and well done skating, go buy Modus Operandi.
