Storyline

Greg Sherman watches as two men assassinate his parents. He makes a lucky escape and enters a police protection scheme. His new identity, Steven Spencer (Spence), takes him to a prestigious private high school in Montreal. His parents' killers, however, know his whereabouts, though they do not know what he looks like. The tough but misunderstood son (Lenny Dalton) of a ex-crook is sent into the school under fake papers to find out the identity of Greg Sherman. Spence and Dalton become close after Spence saves Dalton from drowning. Dalton teaches Spence to fight, to stick up for himself against the older boys. They make a pact to always watch each other's backs. As their time progresses, Dalton's list of possible 'Greg Shermans' wears thin and he finally realizes it is his new best friend, Spence. Dalton must make the choice of whether to follow the orders of the men who killed both his father and Spence's parents, and kill the only witness, Spence himself. Interesting story about ...

Idiotic Storyline/Plot
2 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The plot hinges upon a college freshman who witnesses his parents being murdered, but since he is wearing swimming goggles at the time, the killers do not get a good look at him, but they know who he is because they were business associates of the parents.

He enters the Witness Protection Program and is concealing his identity by registering with a fake identity at a university in Montreal. His pursuers, one of whom is a classmate, know what college he is attending because they have somehow penetrated the FBI Witness Protection Program, but do not know his fake name or have a picture of his face to put with either the real name or the fake one, so the classmate uses process of elimination to find the son.

But knowing his real name, why not just look through his high school yearbook, where he is on the swim team, to find his picture? Or do a DMV check, which should be no problem for crooks sophisticated enough to penetrate the FBI? And why would he be in Witness Protection before the trial - wouldn't he have to blow his cover to testify? And Polaroid cameras, and student records kept in manila folders in file cabinets instead of computers, in the year 2001?

It would be far more interesting than the film itself was to hear the writers explain how they thought anyone with an IQ higher than 10 could possibly overlook such gigantic holes in the plot. My hunch is that the writers themselves were possessed of no higher acumen than their target audience and were thus incapable of recognizing said holes.
