Storyline

A young war reenactor makes a friend on the battlefield who helps him use strategy to take on his high school enemy. Driven by newfound confidence, he seduces the friend's fetching older sister and risks the friendship. Reality intervenes when the illness of his ex-addict father forces the anger his irony masks to the surface and he has to decide if staying in a fantasy world is worth the consequences.

Project Greenlight more interesting than this movie
15 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

I don't know who is really to blame for this totally uninteresting, formulaic, unmoving film.

By watching the Project Greenlight series, you can see that nobody knew exactly what type of movie they were making. From Erica Beeney, to Kyle and Efram, Chris Moore, none of the Mirimax studio executives.

There does not seem to even be the potential of a good story in this movie. At least nothing that hasn't been seen over and over again.

This is what happens when too many people get involved in the development of a script. This is just a mess.

I wish I could say that the acting made this film better, but it doesn't.

A waste of one million dollars.
