Excellent film, from beginning to end. If you're into filming, watch this!!

I thought the movie was great. I watched the "behind the scenes" clip first before watching the film. It helped me understand the background of the film, including the story, the plot, the location, the characters and actors, etc. I have to say that I'm proud of myself in watching Kirk's film after not ever hearing about him in almost 15 years since "Legends of the Hidden Temple" wrapped up. I watched the entire film, from beginning to end. I thought, "Wow! This isn't really bad as I thought it would be." Even though the first 30 minutes were rough and sometimes difficult to follow, the rest of the story helped capture that interest. When scenes transitioned with flashbacks in different areas of the movie, I realized they connect with the the plot and I understood better the characters as well. For example, when I saw the flashback of young Porter discovering his father had killed himself in different parts of the movie, at that point I understood WHY Porter struggled with life, getting into drugs, leading to the Gorman incident, which then precedes the nightmarish conflict in the movie.

As a fan of Kirk Fogg, I truly enjoyed watching his film. I strongly recommend movie-goers, fans, and anyone new to filming or knowing Kirk to watch this film. I give it a 2 thumbs up, an accomplished A!

A message to Kirk Fogg: Hey Kirk! Keep doing what makes you happy in life and you will relish the benefits of its' struggle. You have inspired a lot of people to go for their dreams and be able to succeed in what they want to accomplish, more than you could ever know. You have inspired me. Stay in peace, my friend. Thank you so much!
