As someone whose childhood is linked to the mid-90s, I went into “Mid90s” expecting a connection to the struggles of identity at a time when kids rapidly consumed media like it was a fourth meal. But I did not connect with any of these characters or their reckless search for thrills at any cost. The film is aimed more at the skateboarding and extreme sports culture, especially in the Los Angeles area, making this a film aimed at a niche demographic. While the acting is effective for many first time actors, they can only take this underwhelming script so far.
Final Grade: C-
