      I was really interested in seeing this film at first. It looked like there was a good deal of intrigue. And I liked the idea of Rory Culkin being in the film.

      This young man has quite a presence on camera, being at once introspective and entertaining. Anyway, this story centers on a pudgy bully whose “friends” have decided needs


      to be taught a lesson.

      They arrange a prank in secret, going on a boat ride for one of the members’ “birthday. ” Things go horribly wrong on the boat and (SPOILER ALERT!) ultimately the prank turns deadly.

      During a small squabble, George (the bully) is tossed overboard and he drowns. The group of kids argues over how to handle ...


      • the situation.

        They ultimately agree to bury him and keep it a secret. But the conscience of the kids outweighs that of the leader’s, and they finally turn themselves in.

        I will admit that I was thoroughly entertained all the way up to the part when they decided to turn themselves in. I really thought that the viewer would see

        some of the repercussions.

        But I was left disappointed because we never find out what happens to the kids. I understand what the director/writer was going for.

        Ultimately, I suppose it doesn’t really matter. But I felt that this part of the story would have greatly enhanced the feelings developed by the viewer.

        Anyway, this was a good film with a disappointing ending.
