Storyline

In rural Comfort, Texas, the strict protestant Horizon Bible church community holds its annual, pretty strictly supervised summer camp, with mandatory prayer sessions, for fraternizing teens from all over the States. The day before their departure, storm weather is announced, the busses even ride early to keep ahead, but the wind makes a river rise too fast: the busses are caught, everybody must run on foot. As TV reporters see from their helicopter, the rising water is too fast for one bus after choosing the wrong way, children and staff must climb in trees but can't cling on very long. Some kids break down in understandable panic, others prove true and unselfish courage, including Brad, the natural leader, every girl's dream and the most boisterous of the pack, occasionally braving the rather totalitarian system. Worried parents fly in to the rescue center in a public school, where survivors and corpses are brought in, including that of Tonya Smith; her overprotective father ... Written by KGF Vissers

I also get caught up in this movie
13 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Marcibun made a comment on this movie that I kind-of disagree with; the writer states that the so-called jerk was not given the credit he deserved. I believe marcibun is referring to "Brad" played by David Lascher; I do not think he was portrayed as a jerk at all - first, he took care of his friend with the broken leg by carrying him around anywhere and I did not think he was a jerk for turning him down once to hang-out with a girl. Second, I know he was kissing one then when that one was on another bus he finally asked "Leanne" to sit with him but this was nothing more than being a teenager. Trust me; my heart ached for any of the children that died, no matter how their part portrayed their personalities.

I wish I knew if that were true or not about the driver did not drive into the water as shown on the movie because I know people do that and I was shocked to see the pick-up truck attempt it, then even more shocked to see the pick-up truck make it; but I understand that the water was lower and raised rather quickly so maybe at first the bus could have made it; no one knew the river would rise that quick. I just kept asking myself "Why would you do that with 40 of someone else's children?" I still felt sorry for him and I know he was very sorry - more than we could ever imagine but I still wonder! I was glad the driver had a girlfriend who tried to raise his spirits and I was glad when they were at the funeral and the one with Leukemia acknowledge the driver's efforts. (I do not know all the names by-heart yet but I will when I own this DVD!)

Maybe I might be "strange" but I do not think I could have been any more sympathetic towards the people affected by this disaster than I already am. Heck, I even tried to find the "true" victims by searching for stories and pictures; the only thing I found was a Dallas paper and articles from The Washington Post that you have to purchase, and I almost did (but did not).

Therefore, I am not totally disagreeing with marcibun because this person seems to know more about the incident than I did but I do think "Brad" was given credit, maybe not as much as he was entitled too but without knowing the full story, a person watching the film will not know that the person was "ripped off". The movie gives us reason to feel sympathy for this person and I especially felt for him when Leanne stated she wished he (Brad) would die but did not mean it; that moment made you feel for her and for "Brad." I do not think my heart and head could have taken any more "gut-wrenching" truth; these were young children and I calculated that they would now be my age or a little younger and it is still sad – 20 years later.

I know I am asking myself a lot of "what if" questions so I cannot imagine what the people involved were/are still thinking so I only hope the driver, the parents of the survivors, the parents of the children that passed away, the children who survived, and the friends have ALL found a way to be at peace with this very sad disaster.

I'm always a 'sucker' for a true story!
