Bow Wow stars as a jam-skater in 1978 Chicago in the new movie, Roll Bounce. Find out if this rapper-turned-actor can wow you with his performance!

Roll Bounce - A Wheel Good Time

In the '70s, disco music was all the rage, roller skating was a way of life and Xavier (played by Bow Wow) and his pals ruled the Palisades Gardens Rink. But when it shuts down, the boys have to head across town to Sweetwater Roller Rink, where the threads are glitzier, the girls are prettier and the roller skatin' moves are a whole lot trickier. X realizes that his skills are no match for the Sweetwater crew, who have some of the most fearsome moves on wheels! But it's game on when they challenge each other to an end-of-summer skate off.

Roll Bounce - Skating Slip-Ups

X's life isn't just about rolling, bouncing and spinning though - he's dealing with the recent loss of his mother and trying to mend a troubled relationship with his father. This is where the movie slows down and takes one too many serious turns, as X prepares for the Roller Jam showdown while coming to terms with his family responsibilities. Roll Bounce is also pretty predictable at times, but it does give you an awesome look into the roller-disco craze of the '70s.

Roll Bounce - DVD Features

For Bow Wow fans, the Roll Bounce DVD is a must-have. Listen to commentary from your fave hip-hopper, along with director Malcolm Lee and Bow Wow's co-stars, Mike Epps and Chi McBride. There are twelve deleted scenes, a gag reel, music videos and behind-the-scenes featurettes. Dy-no-mite.

Roll Bounce - The Bottom Line

There's no doubt about it - Roll Bounce is a must-see. The roller skating moves are funky fresh, and Bow Wow proves that he's not only a good rapper but also a good actor. Check out this flick before it bounces out of the theatres!

    • Totally! I am the hugest Bow Wow fan.
    • Probably. I like Bow Wow and Nick Cannon a lot.
    • Maybe. I don't know if I'll like it though.
    • No. I hate lame disco-themed movies.

Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
