action packed film with 80's youngest stars
21 June 2001 | by (Verona , Ontario , Canada) – See all my reviews

"Out Of Bounds" is an action packed thriller with teenage actors such as Anthony Michael Hall (Breakfast Club) , and Jenny Wright (Young Guns 2). With Jeff Kober as the main villain named Roy Gaddis who is the sadistic and crazy drug dealer , and Raymond J. Barry as a crooked drug enforcement agent.

The film is about a farmboy Daryl Cage (Michael Hall) who is encouraged to leave his parents farm and move to Los Angeles with his brother. But something does go wrong , very wrong , when his brother mistakenly mixes up Daryls luggage and picks up a bag of drugs. Just hours after he arrives at his brothers place , his brother (played by the unknown Kevin McCorkle) is brutally slaughtered by the owner of the drugs. Of course the cops cannot find any fingerprints in the house except for daryl's, so he is blamed for the murder. So with the cops and a pyschotic drug dealer on his tail , Daryl and his friend Dizz must seek safety , seek revenge for his brother , and prove that Daryl is innocent.

good plot , great filming , and your average budget is backed up by the supporting cast including Ji Tu Cumbuka as the dealers partner , and Meat Loaf who appears as a friend of the dealer and the pilot , Gil. All of these things add up to a minor success at the box office , and a good style of 80's teenage star films , and being shown on television quite a bit.
