Dir: Andrew Davis (The Fugitive, Under Siege, Collateral Damage, The Guardian)
Cast: Shia LaBeouf, Sigourney Weaver, Jon Voight, Khleo Thomas, Patricia Arquette
USA, 2003

Seen: August 12, 2007 thanks to Toronto Public Library

Reason to see: The word was out that it was a good movie

It's not that often I see and review a Disney film, I believe the last time it was for Watcher in the Woods. A very cute movie with a great story in current day and an added historical flavour flashbacks (with a western setting!), brings us to learn, follow and care about a series of misfits in a youth detention camp. Our protagonist is played by the currently in-almost-everything Shia LaBeouf and I have to say he is quite impressive as is Khleo Thomas as Zero. It is great fun to watch all the adventures and mishaps of the hooligans and their keepers in this family friendly film.

Shannon's Overall View:
I enjoyed it start to finish
I’d watch it again
I’d highly recommend it

Really?! Hmm...I will now have to consider this one. I had no idea that it would be good at all, LOL. Thanks Shannon!

I agree. I saw this a few years ago, right after reading the book actually, before Shia was a big star and he showed potential here not to mention that it was a fun family watch!
