I wish I had known it was a TV Movie
20 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was pretty rough to watch. I ordered it through Amazon Prime and I didn't see anything that said it was a TV movie. About 30 minutes into it I realized it either had to have been made for TV or it was rated PG. It definitely had a layer of "After School Special" that I couldn't ignore. A movie about high schoolers with such clean mouths never makes sense to me.

It was fun to see so much future star power in the same cast, but the movie lacked the excitement I thought it would have based on the synopsis. I'm a Keanu fan, but even by Keanu standards his acting was horrendous. I did see many similarities between this movie and Point Break, which was interesting.

Overall the story was unique and even more so after learning it was based on true events. I just feel like it was executed poorly and the pacing was painfully slow through most of this. It also felt like it was filmed with a home video camera.

I would only recommend this movie for seeing these big names together so early in their careers, otherwise don't make an effort to watch this.
