after school Special
19 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

Razorback is a story of a young orphan who lives with his grandmother. The movie takes place after the death of his parents (not explained), where we see that the boy has retreated into himself and refuses to talk. What ensues is a story of how the boy comes out of his shell. A throwback to the after school special that was so popular in the eighties, Razorback is awash with all the ingredients that made the genre so popular with the Star Wars/Indiana Jones generation in the eighties: dreams of a misunderstood protagonist, threat of fantastic danger, mysterious old man who holds the key to happiness, and final victory of sorts when the protagonist is able to overcome his fears and stand up for what he believes is right.
