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>

Quotes

Luke Cooper: How at this point, am I gonna shoot anybody?
Brad: No.
Luke Cooper: No. We're just sitting around and talking. So why have a loaded and cocked gun? You push this and out pops the cylinder.
Kyle: Then you use the ejector rod right?
Luke Cooper: Very good. You use the ejector rod. But the most important thing I wanna teach you boys, is that you never *ever* point a gun at *anyone* or yourself even if you think it's unloaded, you don't look don't the barrel when your cleaning it you just don't do it. But for me it's a little different...

The moment I declaired John Fawcett one of my favourite directors
4 August 2012 | by (Bailey Downs!) – See all my reviews

Wow. For a low budget thriller from Canada, am I allowed to say I was expecting less? Either way I'll say it. I was expecting at least a 6/10 with this film and it just blew all my expectations out of the water.

For a first feature length film as I said - wow. I won't reveal much about the plot but the less you know the better. The main attraction of this is the plot though, it gives itself a good twist. The first half is harmless and it has spots of humor. The second half is "okay they've sunk WAY TOO DEEP in this to get out. What the F#ck are they going to do?" The highlight performance is Chris Penn as Luke the cop (or at least we think he is) who is with them. The other 3 leads do their jobs very well and I can sort of see a theme Fawcett uses of teen angst(I won't expect that when I watch The Dark (2005) and I will watch that movie) on top of a rather hard situation to get out of. In this its a crime, in Ginger Snaps its becoming a werewolf.

Overall I highly recommend a viewing.
