The success statistics regarding juvenile boot camps are deliberately left out of the end of the film. The truth is most of the kids who go through the programs get important things out of them, things that build character in the correct direction, such as being civilians who contribute to society, rather than simply take from it. The camp in this movie is worse than any in real life. The guard who was raping the girl should be punished, absolutely. But this is a movie *based* on trueevents, so we don't really know how much of this was real, and how much was made up. One thing I do know: kids who burn down buildings and loot in riots probably never went through a bootcamp program.
Having been in this spot as a teenager, i can testify to the level of tunnel vision these teenagers have. It's as if the movie was written from their perspective. I went through some trauma, but it was up to me how I behaved. Ultimately, this and other movies tell this generation it's not their fault how they behave. Continue to be spoiled, even as an adult. I see this culture pervade everything around me. We all go through something, grow up, and get help.
Hard not to give a 5 star to a movie with great actors and a true story based plot. Is chilling to thing kids actually went throw this. How can parents be so irresponsible to trust the safety and mental health of of their children to boot camps. The real crime was done by those parents who's job was to raise and protect their children. Instead they delivered them to the worse of the world. Very well done movie and great acting.
This movie came out of nowhere. I selected it by chance since there was literally nothing else to watch. It turned out to be a really good film. Great story, believable acting, great directing, great cinematography and score. The psychological conditions of the camp seem very realistic. These programs really exist. The war between the characters makes it worth seeing.
A bootcamp for spoiled kids??????? How spoiled is that!!!! spoiled in life, spoiled in Fiji to be cured of more spoiled??? And to make it 'legitimate', it's 'based on trueevents'?? lol. A TOTAL SPOILED MESS.
3.0 out of 5 starsFeels like it should be better...

I felt like there was something missing from this film. I can't put my finger on it, it just felt a little restrained. The acting is good and the script executed well. Having researched the subject matter, I feel they could have done more to make the film more real. I know this version has 4 minutes cut out so maybe that's what the problem is...
