Set in the then-future of 2019, Prayer of the Rollerboys is a dystopian action film that centers around the rise of a gang called the Rollerboys. The film stars Corey Haim as Griffin, a former member of the Rollerboys who becomes disillusioned with the group's violent tactics and tries to find a way out. The film is set in a near-future Los Angeles that has been devastated by economic collapse and widespread drug addiction. The city is ruled by a corrupt government and crime runs rampant in the streets, with the Rollerboys serving as one of the most powerful and violent gangs in the city. The Rollerboys are a group of inline skaters who wear distinctive outfits and use their rollerblades as weapons in their various criminal activities.

The story follows Griffin as he tries to help his younger brother, who has become involved with the Rollerboys and has become addicted to a new street drug called "mist." Griffin is aided in his quest by Casey, played by Patricia Arquette, a former Rollerboy who has also grown disillusioned with the gang's tactics. Together, they set out to take down the Rollerboys and put an end to their reign of terror.

The film is filled with action sequences that showcase the Rollerboys' impressive skating abilities, as well as some impressive fight scenes. The film also explores themes of loyalty, family, and redemption, as Griffin tries to reconnect with his brother and make things right.

One of the standout performances in the film comes from Christopher Collet, who plays Gary Lee, the leader of the Rollerboys. Collet brings a menacing presence to the role, and his villainous performance is one of the highlights of the film. Haim also delivers a strong performance as Griffin, bringing a sense of vulnerability and desperation to the character.

Overall, Prayer of the Rollerboys is a fast-paced and entertaining action film that offers a unique look at a dystopian future. While some of the film's predictions may seem a bit far-fetched in hindsight, the film's themes of loyalty and redemption still resonate today. If you're a fan of action films or dystopian sci-fi, Prayer of the Rollerboys is definitely worth a watch.
