Three teenage boys in small-town Southern Ontario are thrilled when Luke Cooper, a mysterious American fugitive with a gunshot wound in his leg, decides to crash their secret hideout. Luke tells them that he's a cop on the run from corrupt colleagues, and swears them to silence. As he recuperates, he becomes their buddy and confidante. By the time the boys realize Luke is not who he pretends to be, they're in way over their heads. Written by Scott Rollans <srollans@freenet.edmonton.ab.ca>

You see my friend, Bruce, ya know he's a Sargent, he's my boss. Well, he looks at me so I smile. Then he pulls his .38 out of his pocket. Ping! That's I guess the mechanics of it.

A secret club, a hidden truth
18 July 1999 | by SassyFoxSee all my reviews

This movie was quite interesting I'd say. It first just starts as a boring kinda of summer for 3 boys until they find a man in there club house way out in the woods. The man says he is a cop hiding from some other cops. It turns out he is not all what he says to be...
