Storyline

When provocatively impish drug addict Sophie is forcibly shipped off by her passive mother and brutally domineering stepfather to dodgy, messianic and platitude-spouting Dr. Arthur Hail's completely isolated Fiji island boot camp for wayward teens (a.k.a. Camp Serenity), her perfectly respectable boyfriend Ben refuses to stand passively by. He fakes a drug problem to get himself enrolled in Dr. Hail's Advanced Serenity Achievement Program, where he plans to find and escape with Sophie. Meanwhile both teens witness and endure the physically harsh and psychologically brutal conditions fostered by the doctor and enforced by Logan, his militaristic and imposing chief of security - where all "enrollees" have "less rights than prisoners on death row." Written by KGF Vissers

Very good and very different.
24 October 2009 | by xXsynXxSee all my reviews

This movie brought an issue to my attention that I didn't know existed. "Tough Love" Boot Camps are portrayed correctly in this movie, and in some cases, the real camps are much more difficult experiences. The first 10 minutes or so were a little slow, and I wasn't sure what to think. When the characters got to the camp, though, I was enthralled. This movie just keeps you at the edge of your seat. And no matter how brutal the characters are to each other, you can't bring yourself to look away. Overall, I gave this movie 9 out 10 stars for an interesting idea, good acting, and good directing. The only thing to warn anyone about would be that it does get brutal and has some language, so it is definitely not recommended for younger audiences. Other than that, I advise you to see this. You won't be sorry!
