Three teenage boys in small-town Southern Ontario are thrilled when Luke Cooper, a mysterious American fugitive with a gunshot wound in his leg, decides to crash their secret hideout. Luke tells them that he's a cop on the run from corrupt colleagues, and swears them to silence. As he recuperates, he becomes their buddy and confidante. By the time the boys realize Luke is not who he pretends to be, they're in way over their heads. Written by

They're good guys, but no one cares. Your friends they don't care, there good guys but they really don't care if your a pilot. Your school they don't care, your family it sounds like they want you to fail, so why care about them, why care what they think?
I don't know.
No one cared about me when I grew up; i can tell you that. You know what i learned about the world? You do unto others, you eat what you kill and that's what life is.
You're not a cop are you?
Your friends say that?
No, no one ...

Be careful about choosing your heroes .................
Three impressionistic 14 yr. olds discover a fugitive in an isolated shack they use as a club house. Chris Penn is excellent in the role of the unhinged and wounded killer. The script comes across as mostly believable, and builds tension nicely. The acting by all involved is totally acceptable, and the rural setting feels correct. This really is beyond the usual coming of age film, because of the violence. The film's message, if there is one, seems to be, be careful about choosing your heroes. For admirers of Chris Penn this is a must see...................................... Recommended as above average entertainment. - MERK
