Unbelievably Entertaining for ALL the Wrong Reasons
21 September 2008 | by shark-43See all my reviews

GERONIMO is such a strange film - a Christian message movie where teens try and convert troubled inner city ghetto thugs. Somehow, the director seems to have cast REAL ghetto kids who play themselves and give some amazing naturalistic performances - they are so real they seem to be riffing in an Altman film or discovered by Larry Clark - but the rest of the film is filled with the stilted bad community theatre performances of the somber, "saved" good kids. A pouty teen named Jeremy is mad at God for the death of his sister and refuses to go to church - he gets pressured into counselling at a Christian summer camp - Camp Zion - and wouldn't you know it - some latino and black gangstas get sent to the camp to get "straightened out". The scenes of these street kids ad-libbing and insulting the dorky counselors are priceless. Very obscure, very entertaining - so bad it is good.
