The Revolution
Plan B
1997, 35 minutes
Current Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Revolution, the final offering from Plan B, is loaded with the technical skating you have come to expect from the Plan B guys. The video clocks in at a little over a half hour with parts from Pro street destroyers Rodney Mullen, Pat Channita, Pat Duffy, and Jeremy Wray, Ams (at the time) Rick McCrank and Brian Emmers, and vert technicians Danny Way and Colin McKay. Most of the music throughout the video is classic rock.

Overall, I think that this is a pretty good video. It has tech, gaps, stairs, ledges, vert... just about everything. Brian Emmers’ switch skills go to work with a switch hardflip backside nosegrind. Jeremy Wray's part is topnotch with rail tricks galore, tons of flip tricks over picnic tables, and about every possible grind on a gigantic ledge. Pat Duffy's part, however, is quite a disappointment. It has some pleasing tricks, but it doesn’t quite stand up to his other parts in the earlier Plan B videos, and it seems kind of short. Another shitter is the lack of a part from Sal Barbier. Then again, Danny Way and Colin McKay come through with groundbreaking parts in the realm of vert skating. Their part is mostly technical vert skating with tricks like D. Way's heelflip nosegrind to fakie and Colin's backside tailslide shove it. Overall, Plan B comes through with a decent video with a good balance of technical street and vert skating.
