Storyline

Three teenage boys in small-town Southern Ontario are thrilled when Luke Cooper, a mysterious American fugitive with a gunshot wound in his leg, decides to crash their secret hideout. Luke tells them that he's a cop on the run from corrupt colleagues, and swears them to silence. As he recuperates, he becomes their buddy and confidante. By the time the boys realize Luke is not who he pretends to be, they're in way over their heads. Written by Scott Rollans <srollans@freenet.edmonton.ab.ca>

Good, cud have been gooder.
19 April 2006 | by shabbastoneSee all my reviews

This will give some a nostalgic feel of the 90's with dress code,the 90's grunge music and the grim and sometimes gritty setting of the plot.if your looking for a film with not too much to ask this would be decent selection.but if you are consciously looking for a low-budget film with a good performance by the actors and a good music score then this would be sweet film to watch.its characters are portrayed brilliantly by all the actors in the film including few known faces and some not very known.(stuart stone played donnie's friend in donnie darko).although it may have been released in cinemas which i don't know but its probably fawcett's finest attempts at film making (he recently made THE DARK[2006]).All in all i think it is a piece of entertainment that i would not mind watching maybe twice.i give it a 6.5 outta 10.
