Excellent
12 December 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was excellent. It portrays the real side to life for a teenager, and is very relevant to todays society.

Although there are frequent movies on this same subject, i believe this shows outstanding characters and fights to make this movie into a reality for the viewer.

The end of this story shocked me, although i knew it was going to happen, it was a huge awakening. I only hope that nothing like this happens in my life or to people surrounding me.

I give the movie 10 out of 10 for one main reason. It seemed real. There was none of that bull that other movies bung on about it was straightforward and realistic. It was interesting all the way through and it taught me a lot about the kind of people i should be associating with.
