The Skull-and-Bones Society (on which this movie was based) actually gives out watches to each class of skulls, though not necessarily with the whole branding ceremony. After the movie was filmed, Joshua Jackson acquired one of the actual watches and gave it to director Rob Cohen. See more »

This isn't right.
Judge Litten Mandrake:
Well, it may not be right, but it worked. This is your preacceptance to the law school of your choice.
I haven't even applied yet.
Judge Litten Mandrake:
Imagine that. It's all paid for. I would do anything to protect you. Won't you do the same for me?

I wasn't really sure if I'd like the movie. As another reviewer put it, "The Skulls is not art. In fact it's pretty bad but some films are just made to entertain." If you haven't seen this film for quite some time, then I highly suggest that you do see it soon. There's really no way to classify or categorize this film. The film is dark, brooding, intense and most of all depressing. Great performances help to enhance this amazing story of friendship and violence. It's an amazing work and everything I had hoped for. The real centerpiece of the film is its acting. This film was nearly perfect, but sadly still not made for everyone. I award it 7 out of 10.
