Armed with nothing more than twigs, their imaginations and a simple set of rules, a group of 12-year-olds engaged in a lively game of Capture the Flag in the neighborhood woods start dangerously blurring the lines between make-believe and reality. Paint-filled balloons = Grenades. Trees = Control towers. Sticks = Sub-machine guns. The youthful innocence of the game gradually takes on a different tone as the quest for victory pushes the boundaries of friendship. The would-be warriors get a searing glimpse of humanity's dark side as their combat scenario takes them beyond the rules of the game and into an adventure where fantasy combat clashes with the real world.

Stand by me no south park yeah maybe.
27 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

If anyone compares this to stand by me I'd really like to know what they see as the comparison other than it has kids and one of them wears a red shirt that looks like the kid from stand by me shirt. The kids remind me more of south park characters with their style of foul mouth and mean demeanor. Yes there was swearing in stand by me, but it had actual context of bonding and horsing around. You had a sense the kids liked each other. This movie not so much. It's more of a south park effect. It lacks real character connection and any sort of philosophical point. In some sense I think they may have been better off running with more imagination of the war thing, almost like a pans labyrinth, than what they did. The characters were very cliché and over the top. I don't blame the actors for it, I think the kids did a great job, more the script they were handed. It makes the movie hard to watch at points, because the script writing just doesn't hold much reality to how kids really act, which I think was a real strength in stand by me. I wouldn't watch this with smaller kids. But if you are bored and got nothing else to do it's OK.
