"☆☆☆☆. Powerful and frightening!"
Blockbuster Entertainment Guide.
With "sharply expressive performances" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) by its young cast, this stunning adventure explores the deep, dark corners of the human soul, as a group of adolescent castaways are thrust into an intense world where law and accountability are governed by the rules of survival. After a harrowing plane crash into the sea, a group of American military cadets find themselves marooned on a deserted island. Realizing the minimal chances of being rescued, the boys band together out of fear and desperation. But as the island paradise becomes their own, competition and power struggles split them into two packs. Ralph (Balthazar Getty) leads one group and preaches civilized ingenuity and togetherness, but Jack (Chris Furrh) wants nothing of it and builds a faction of barbaric hunters who ultimately go to war with Ralph. This powerful shift in conscience transforms ordinary kids into primal killers, setting off a devastating battle of good versus evil and presenting a haunting metaphor for the darkness that lurks within all of us. -- (C) MGM Home Entertainment, 1990, USA.
