If you liked "The Matrix" you'll love Frogs!
23 June 1999 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Truly one of the finer coming-of-age stories out there. Fine acting from the mother, whom you may remember from The Shining amongst other items. She even played a major role in the production. The effects are stimulating. The young boy going against his RUBUS state, squarer than a L-7 Weenie, through the help of his frog/science project. The frog effects bedazzled me.

His large reptile collection represents an urge to go beyond his mere human emotions, consisting mostly of an overwhelming sense of rejection and helplessness. If only the Coloroda shooters had frogs of their own. If every boy was issued a frog and no fret of a mother's concern of the dangerous swamp.

The final war-rally of the frogs is almost a scene out of Braveheart.

My emotions are too overpowering to continue with the review. This breathtaking romp through the spectrum of human emotion still sends shivers down my spine. This is something YOU MUST EXPERIENCE FOR YOURSELF. Even if it's the last thing you do....

Viewing recommended only under extreme medication. It's just that good.
