The full movie Blade Squad is now on Youtube, thanks to Mike Mcfly. He had to cut some audio part (just music, no dialogs were removed) because copyright claims would otherwise remove the video entirely.
The Blade Squad is an experimental police chaser unit that consists of mainly cops who have screwed up and are practically off the force, who patrol the city on roller blades and have jet packs that give them speed. Presently, the department is trying to decide if whether or not they are worth keeping on. They are going after street punk who pulls flawless robberies. And what they don’t know is that the man’s brother was arrested by them and tried to runaway and was killed in the process, he blames and is planning to go after them.

Quoting Mike Mcfly (Youtube Channel):
Starring Corin Neme (Parker Lewis can’t loose), this high budget TV movie was intended to launch a TV series. What’s interesting to note: This appears to be either an extensive rewrite of the Prayer of the Rollerboys script or maybe an Ill-fated sequel. There is a character credited as “Miltie” (Corey Haim’s younger brother in that movie) and several drug dealers are credited as “mist dealers” (the fictional drug from Prayer of the Rollerboys). Writer W. Peter Iliff worked on both projects (“Blade Squad” & “Prayer of the Rollerboys”).
Previously: ‘Rollerblade… The Team, The Skate, The Sport’ 1988 point of sale VHS (first ever in-line video). Mike McFly digitized the VHS! Thanks a lot!

Roller Squad is an action-thriller feature film, with a touch of British humour. Shot in London in 2020 with a low budget, “Roller Squad” is a project driven by passion. The production was made more complicated by the covid situation, but the empty streets gave us a great playground for the roller skating scenes.
The cast is a mix of: professional actors (Alice Sanders, Amy Newton, Benjamin McMahon, David Wayman, Elizabeth McNally, Julian London, Alexander Nicolaou, Natasha Moore, Jumaane Brown, and Morgan Sebode) and talented skaters (Tibor Babic, Germán Moreno, Pierre Esparsa, Aurora Garosi , Enzo Elias, Yineska Sánchez, Mark MacFarlane, Víctor Blasco Ávila, Alice Lean, Alex Juravlea, Adrian Pelayo, and Fernando Camarillo Segura).
Roller Squad was written and directed by Berty Cadilhac, and co-produced by Clare Cahill, the director of Photography was Bruce Melhuish.
Outline: A mysterious serial killer attacks the roller skater community in London. The police cannot catch him, as he is a very skilled and fast roller skater himself. A group of friends decide to take the matter in their own hands, and organise a man hunt across the streets of London. It takes a skater to catch another skater (IMDB Page).
The project was funded on Indiegogo | Visit Rollersquad.com.
