Storyline

Four boys are involved in a robbery in which a policeman is killed. Caught, they are told they will most-definitely be convicted. Three will get life sentences and only one will be given the chair if they tell who pulled the trigger. Left to themselves, the boys must decide which will forfeit their life for the others. Will it be the one who actually pulled the trigger, the one who has a family, the one who brought the gun in the first place, or the one who has the least prospects of leading a happy life if ever paroled.

I'm an "easy" grader
7 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film as an adolescent, among many I saw those years in my small mid-west home-city. This was a "great" film for me in that, as a naive (and I still consider myself such), even I discovered that there was such a thing as BAD film. This realization developed in later years into the idea that each movie-going is a gamble, in which I stake my money & time on the prospect of a good entertainment experience. And naturally, sometimes I lose. This realization put the onus on me for my own experience. I oughtn't be angry with the film for being bad. Put another way, as surely as there are great films, there HAVE to be duds. I'm almost tempted enough to rent FBAAG again, a)to see Jas. Franciscus, and b)to see if it really was all that bad. Tho, upon reflection, I'm fairly sure that it was.
