Prayer of the Rollerboys (1990, FULL MOVIE)

Corey Haim stars as Griffin, a rollerblader and pizza delivery man in near future Los Angeles, a city overrun with crime and drug use in the wake of a catastrophic economic crash caused by the greed of previous generations. 

A rollerblade-wearing white supremacist gang known as the Rollerboys fight for control of what’s left of the city. The Rollerboys carry out their eugenics agenda through violent battles with ethnic gangs and through the distribution of the drug “mist”. When Griffin’s little brother begins to idolize the Rollerboys and eventually starts abusing mist, Griffin is convinced by an undercover cop (Patricia Arquette) to join up with the Rollerboys as a mole, in exchange for a better life for his brother.

Having joined up, Griffin’s loyalties to the gang are eventually called into question and he is tricked into beating his African-American friend Speedbagger to near death. He also discovers that the Rollerboys’ mantra “the day of the Rope is coming” actually refers to a toxic chemical “Rope” being added to the mist drug which renders its (mostly non-Caucasian) abusers sterile, enabling the gang’s genocidal goal.
