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>

A gripping little gem
5 August 2000 | by (Allentown, PA) – See all my reviews

This is one independent flick that I had happen to run into in a local video store back in '97. At first, I thought it was

going to be those stupid, teen coming of age flicks that are so popular in the late '90s that I was almost tempted to ignore it. But I read the back of the video and I found the plot to be pretty intriguing: three teens who hang out in their clubhouse found in some dense woods are startled to find a wounded drifter who claims to be an undercover cop, hiding in their little club. Soon enough, the boys make a fine acquaintence with the man, not knowing that this guy has a dreadful secret about himself, and a harrowing experience follows when the boys discover the man's true colors.

This film actually had good acting and a fine, promising

premise. Devon Sawa stars as Kyle, one of the kids whose wild, destructive personality comes into conflict with the drifter. I was very surprised that Sawa can act up a storm sometimes! I found him especially weak in films such as "Wild America" and "The Night of the Twisters." The dude can really play his part well. Chris Penn (Sean's brother) is in top form as the menacing drifter, who tries to manipulate the boys with his smooth- talking charm and his sadistic ways.
