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.

good series, but movie fails to deliver
14 June 2004 | by JackSparrow_SavySee all my reviews

I was disappointed by this movie. i watched the Project Greenlight series every week, and i thought it was gonna be okay. what brought it down was all the stuff they didn't put in.they cut out a lot of good stuff. as for that shia kid; he's okay. he was good in Holes, but he seemed like a smartass in this movie. hopefully he'll move on to better things. i heard someone say he's the next john cusack; that's only gonna happen if this kid gets a new attitude and starts looking for better material. Ben affleck and matt damon have done better, and i hope they do better. this is another project greenlight disappointment.

out of 4 possible stars, i give this 2 stars.
