The thing that defines this movie is it's dialogue. The amount of swearing earned it a high rating in most countries, but the dialogue between teenagers in this film is the best written I've seen in a movie for quite a long time. It's a shame that this has resulted in the high rating because it will exclude a lot of people who are the right age to appreciate what this film is trying to say.
I bought this film recently from America, because it go a release in only three cinemas in the entire of England! It was worth the wait to get it on DVD though -- finally, a movie about young people that isn't stereotypical, Hollywood-ised and badly written, and actually attempts to create characters out of the teenagers instead of some demonised monsters who kill other teenagers, like the kind of thing the media might blow it up into. All credit to Jacob Aaron Estes (writer/director) for bringing a little moral ambiguity into it -- what would you do in this situation? Honestly -- I know what I should do, but I have a strong feeling that if this situation actually happened, I wouldn't actually be thinking about that.
Also, the performances in this movie are incredible. Each of the actors brings their characters to life brilliantly, and credit to Estes for managing to get strong performances from six young actors.Read more ›
Anyway... The DVD arrive on time, and was packaged well.
The story starts with Sam (Rory Culkin) who is physically beaten by the overweight bully George (Josh Peck) so his brother Rocky (Trevor Morgan) and his two friends Marty (Scott Mechlowicz) and Clyde (Ryan Kelley) hatch a plan of harmless revenge by inviting him to sams birthday party on a river trip. They also bring along Sams love interest Millie (Carly Schroder), but when she finds out about the plan everyone decides to call it off, but when one of the members burst out in rage the plan suddenly turns tragic and consequential that they have to live with and it will haunt them for the rest of there lives. Brilliant performances and a emotional movie creating a harrowing tale, WATCH IT!. star rating ***** out of *****

Great film. Very poetic camera shots. Slightly philosophical story line.
If long poetic shots of scenery or emotion are too slow for your mind which has been trained to... Read more
