Who was this made for?
5 May 2002 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

I found this watchable in the sense that it passed the time. As for if it had an entertaining story and engaging character, uh-uh. It's hard to sympathize with these youths because they seem too arrogant, and also unbelievably naive at times. As for the story, it doesn't seem to know where it's going. First we see the youths struggle, then we see them get involved with a big plan, then their subsequent escape, then... well, the movie after that point has even less of a clue what to do. To top it off, there's no real ending. The "joy" comes from the producers who took ticket-buyers on a "ride" - though I doubt this sold many tickets.
