Jake Lloyd From "Unhook The Stars"....Advantage #1.
17 September 1999 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This film's first and only advantage is Jake Lloyd. I think he has a lot of promise for many acting roles in the near future - it's especially evident in Unhook The Stars. Also look for Bridgette Wilson who is featured in "Unhook The Stars" as well. This movie is based on the best selling novel "Host" and it's a very excellent adaptation. There are some very tense moments that I will not ruin for you such as some people would love to do...but there is a certain scene with Jake and Bridgette that is pretty intense - you'll know it when you see it. Of course I will do nothing but praise Jake Lloyd's acting because I think he is extremely talented - for those of you who have seen "Unhook The Stars", you will understand where I'm coming from. I am just so impressed and incredibly amazed at the talent he has possessed at such a young age. He gives an excellent performance as the character "Jack". Bridgette Wilson also gave a good performance as "Julie"

  • I have no complaints about her at all. I don't see how anyone possibly
could either. It's pretty unlikely that anyone who hasn't seen this movie will actually get to view it. Since the movie had a low budget, it will more than likely result in it not being aired again. Great film. ~Despite the fact that any links, associations and contributions to this movie regarding her are non-existent...Rock On ALANiS!!!(ALANiS is always too hot, never too cold, she makes her best shot, too hot to hold, she's never too young, never too old, ALANiS has gotta go for GOLD!!)1991~ ALANiS Will Always "ROCK YA"!!!
