Current Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Berzerker chronicles the skating and hijinks from the Toy Machine 2003 Berzerker Tour. Just under 30 minutes, you’ll see Ed’s new crew consisting of Billy “The Skid” Marks, Josh “3 Part” Harmony, amateur Trevor “Oops I” Dunnet plus others. The DVD has Sucking the Life as an added bonus.

No-Comply July 09, 2004

Berzerker contains its own self-deprecating line, "another worthless tour video." This pretty much sums it all up. The video contains all the clichés of skate tours: big white vans filled with bored youngsters, fireworks, drunken hotel room thrashing, bb guns, predictable skating on so-so demo set-ups, etc. etc. etc. Worse, however, is the awkward spot it's forced itself into by being teamed with the bonus Sucking the Life video. Hosting all the same antics previously mentioned while having much more energy and authenticity, I like this video much better. There’s much more street footage and the line between skating and tour hi-jinks is far more balanced. Berzerker felt like it was pretty much going through the motions (albeit the artsy, Toy Machine way) and Ed- Even though you seem to be poking fun at yourselves in your ads and videos, I'm left with the distinctive feeling that ultimately the joke's on us!
