Storyline

'Tracks' is based on the true-story of a middle class white suburban teenagers who unknowingly committed a senseless act of violence in July of 1982. Peter Madigan and his friends spent countless summer nights on the train tracks in Fairlawn, New Jersey when one evening, they mindlessly threw a switch and derailed an oncoming train resulting in the death of its conductor. This case made history in the New Jersey judicial system and these teenagers (who, at the time, were between the ages of 14 and 16) were the first in the state to be tried and convicted as adults. 'Tracks' chronicles their descent with a portrayal of a boy who made a mistake, paid the consequences and got back on 'track.' Written by Anonymous

The movie does start slow, but I enjoyed seeing Ice T play a very different role. He was convincing. What I did see was a movie that can be used to show at risk teens how some out of control fun can lead to more trouble than they are prepared to accept. I loved the prison scenes. They really had some of the best action in the movie and I found it funny. One unknown actor in the prison scene, whom I know as Sean Moore play an excellent thug in the prison scenes gave the prison scenes some reality where there was not a lot of good acting aside from Ice T. Not a movie I would pay to see on the big screen. With some help from some better production, rewriting and improvement on the casting, this could be a better movie. I purchased a copy for my collection.
