Storyline

Seventeen year old New Yorker Greg Sherman is placed in the witness protection program by Jerome Carver after he is able to identify through photos his mother's killers. She was a collateral casualty of his father's murder, he who was going to testify against his criminal boss, Dominic Patton. The two hit men, Dean Raines and Ray Quick, are known associates of Patton's. Given the new name Steven Spencer, Greg is sent to Royal Dominion College, a private boys' boarding school in Montréal, run by Carver's friend, Denise Wokowski, who reluctantly agrees to the arrangement despite a past witness in her care being killed. There, "Spence" befriends another new student to the school, Lenny Dalton, who is somewhat of an outsider due to his tough guy demeanor. The two make a pact to watch out for each other's back. Dalton is not at the school to make friends, as Patton discovered where Greg was, and as such Dean sent Dalton, his unofficial charge after Dalton's father was murdered, to discover...

Both flat and unbelievable
13 December 2014 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

This movie was one of twelve under the umbrella title "Tales of Intrigue" made by Allegro Films for a Canadian pay TV network. I haven't seen any of the others, but I have a strong feeling from this entry that the others are pretty poor just like this one. I have to agree with the other user commenters that the script has a number of, "Oh, come on now!" moments, starting from the first scene. While one may think from what I just said in the previous paragraph that the movie may be unintentionally campy, it isn't. It's an extremely slow, heavily padded story with no tension at any point, and you'll be able to predict what will happen long before it happens. I guess the production values are passable for a Canadian TV movie effort, and the movie gets a few points for being the rare Canadian movie that is actually set (mostly) in Canada. But it's only worth watching for those non-Canadians who may be wondering why most Canadians don't embrace their nation's movies and television shows.
