The town I grew up in.
22 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I lived in the small town when they made this movie. The name of the town is Darrington Washington. They filmed the mountain scenes in our high school gym. I met all the actors it was great. The movie was a good movie. Now of course with all of the technology we have it seems to be old school. I loved it though. I would like to get a copy of this movie because we did not get one when it was released. The little boy was great but after meeting the actors in this movie it was awesome to see them in the movie. I lived a few houses down for where the kept the helicopter after it was blown up. I hope more people enjoyed the movie as much as I did.
