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>

The Boys Club
15 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie back in probably 1997-1998. My dad rented it at the the no longer Video World. I was just a little kid then, but I loved the movie. Before I knew about ebay, I looked all over town for a copy of the movie. Needless to say, I found it last year it at a local video store in town, Umpqua Video. This movie is great. It's just an independent film with good acting by Dominic Zamprogna, Devon Sawa, Stuart Stone and Chris Penn, and an awesome, thrilling plot.

The setting of this movie takes place in a small town In Ontario, Canada back in '95-'96. Three friends, Kyle, Eric and Brad have a clubhouse in the backwoods of town. The one day they find a wounded stranger, Luke, in their clubhouse. He is carrying a gun and badge and tells them he is a cop. Perfect cover.

I bought this movie on ebay awhile ago, and I definitely recommend it. It's worth the money. Also this movie has some rad music. I've actually bought a lot of the music. Failed you by the pasties, awesome song and on an even better CD (self-titled.) Very rare CD, If you ever come across it, Get It!!
