Storyline

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 Scott Rollans <srollans@freenet.edmonton.ab.ca>

See it! Great for everyone!
14 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

A great Story, might scare little children. Chris Penn and Dominic (Kyle) especially good. I was surprised that I liked it. I've seen Chris Penn lots of times, and is dependable. But, Dominic (?) as Kyle, who is he? Was very good.
