Rory Culkin = good :)
Little blond chick = good :)
It pays to be nice sometimes huh? Bullies always get it back... someway, somehow.
I liked it...
Of my categories I'd have to... Read more say, I'd buy it but I wouldnt watch it again for a good long while.
Kept us intrigued and intersted but we were not entirely happy with the ending. Mostly alright other than that.
This is a copycat to some degree of the excellent Stand By Me
Works to a point and is worth the time
Nothing startling though
Fantastic, emotive and powerful in every way imaginable. Watch and see.
its weakness is that it is not original but its strength is that you are given time to empathize with the young characters.
Ok story, very sad, but true depiction of childrens behaviour to each other, bullies and nice kids and who wins. Nice river scences.
Good cast of kids make this better than average, about a bullying culture and the impact of their decisions when things go wrong.
Superb acting from a young cast. I really enjoyed this, even though all of the cast members are at least 10 years younger than me. I think most people can relate to the issue this movie raises, how... Read more difficult it can be growing up, that other people especially when your young dont always see the real you, and the torments and teasings that go along with all those growing pains. This movie touches on all of these subjects wonderfully within a group of teenagers and preteens. George is a bully, but hes also a misunderstood boy who no one really wants to understand, once a plan is set in motion to pay him back for the way he has treated others, nothing goes as planned, and everyones lives will be changed forever, and they will all have to decide who they really are, and what they are willing to do, what they are willing to become, before its too late.
Very predictable sort of film which could have been done in 30 minutes really, some good performances though, and great scenery.
Superb acting by young actors in this more-adult version of Stand By Me (which is also an excellent movie). I would probably have rated it 5 stars if it hadn't ended at such an unexpected point.
