Plot: A group of at-risk teens are sent to a what they think is a rehabilitation program on Fiji, but it's really a prison-like camp where kids are abused and brainwashed. Runtime: 99 mins Release Date: 08 May 2008
I haven't seen a good flick like this in awhile, you really feel for the characters and the situations they go through. Plus the story is based on true events.Parents who think their children are out of control send them away to camp serenity where they think they are being looked after, little do they know its a torture camp with twisted, manipulated methods to get the kids to change.This is a great night in flick, I recommend it. Mila Kunis from that 70's show and forgetting sarah marshall is great in this film. You will not be disappointed.
Overall Better Than Expected...to the guy who says the kids are all spoiled... (by benromansky)
Mila Kunis and her boyfriend played great roles, and the foreign guy played a good self- righteous "doctor" with a god complex. As someone who went to one of these places, New Dominion in Maryland - I take offense to the reviewer who says these places are for "spoiled kids". Guess what, the one I went to was 95 percent sentenced juvenile offenders, and I was one of the lucky "spoiled kids". My crime - nothing - I have no criminal record. The one I went to wasn't as "Lord of the Flies" like, but there was physical abuse, and sexual abuse that they <more>
covered up but definitely existed. There are no regulation on these places. To say people deserve it is messed up. I still suffer PTSD from being at the one I went to, probably the result of being body slammed for speaking my mind and being mentally tortured on a 24/7 basis. It's also nice to have to work chipping at rocks to get your food and to get a grade A concussion and be told to "walk it off". Anyway I'm now graduated from college with honors, but these sick places still exist. I will never forget being told by the juvenile offenders there that they'd rather be back in prison.
This movie is GREAT ! / Exposes programs that REALLY EXIST ! (by wdtony)
If I hadn't been through a brainwashing camp myself as a teenager I wouldn't think this movie was anything more than an interesting watch. But, the reality is that I know this type of abuse and worse happens in boot camps, wilderness programs, therapeutic boarding schools, residential treatment centers, teen drug rehabs and many other programs in the United States and Canada. I witnessed it and experienced it myself at age 14-16.Due to the reality that this movie portrays and the lack of attention given to this problem in our society, I applaud all who were part of the making of <more>
this movie.If anyone would like to know more about this very real issue of kids being brainwashed, tortured and killed in teen programs, Google FORNITS a forum for those who were victims of these programs , Human Earth Animal Liberation HEAL , International Survivors Action Committee ISAC , Teen Advocates USA.Find the Youtube video of "Martin Lee Anderson" being killed by staff in a boot camp caught on surveillance video the staff were not convicted of the murder but were all acquitted! .The movie itself is absolutely worth watching, although some parts are a little over the top, because the premise of the movie is based on actual events that have and do happen all across this country. Plus many horrors that happen in these programs were not shown in this movie.I almost forgot to mention the bill in congress titled H.R.911 that is aimed at regulating these programs so kids are not abused and killed in them. Our Government Accountability Office has discovered a large amount of evidence showing abuse, fraud and deaths of children in these programs. Look for the Youtube of Greg Kutz or George Miller and the investigation behind bill H.R.911.
This movie brought an issue to my attention that I didn't know existed. "Tough Love" Boot Camps are portrayed correctly in this movie, and in some cases, the real camps are much more difficult experiences. The first 10 minutes or so were a little slow, and I wasn't sure what to think. When the characters got to the camp, though, I was enthralled. This movie just keeps you at the edge of your seat. And no matter how brutal the characters are to each other, you can't bring yourself to look away. Overall, I gave this movie 9 out 10 stars for an interesting idea, good <more>
acting, and good directing. The only thing to warn anyone about would be that it does get brutal and has some language, so it is definitely not recommended for younger audiences. Other than that, I advise you to see this. You won't be sorry!
First think you think about while watching this film is how horrible the camps are - and how bizarre and scary it is that these camps actually exist even today. It would feel better if this film was about some dystopian society, but no. It makes you hate humanity a little. How is it possible that parents can't control their children at all? And even if your child was a horrible, uncontrollable little monster does that justify this kind of protocol? Even prisons seem almost kind comparing to these camps. The purpose of the film was definitely to make people think about the subject, and the <more>
film succeeds in this very well. Every gruesome detail in the story is excellently effective.One other important thing is that you want the characters to say something or do something OR you think how you'd do in that situation. That thought isn't always so realistic, but still you think how you'd at least want to act. But whenever the characters seem to give in to the camp and its systems, you just want to grab them and shake them, and yell at them not to do it. The ideas of Boot Camp are brought to the audience very clearly. It could be a document without any kind of story to it, but still the story and fictional characters bring the film to life. You may not like the teenagers sent to the camp, but you definitely root for them instead of the adults controlling the camp. And the story is great, even if you ignore the reality to it. It is brutal with moments of hope, followed by moments of even greater despair. Maybe the end of the film isn't how it would really go down, but it brings the audience some kind of hope - and it gives some kind of closure to the film. If the end was realistic, it would be an awful end to a film. Think about the realistic ending, even if you haven't seen the movie. The realistic ending would be the characters just being brainwashed and abused, and then finally going back to their normal life, except it wouldn't be normal anymore. How can anyone adjust to normal life after experiencing something like this?Boot Camp is shot in a very interesting way. Most of the cinematography is typical, but especially flashbacks are shot differently. They stand out, like flashbacks should. The colours are also amazing. Worst part is the island the camp is at. It seems like the perfect spot for a holiday, but what goes on in there ruins the atmosphere. So the location for the film is very skilfully chosen.I recommend Boot Camp to everyone. It is really harsh, but since this happens in real life, it's very important to watch.
A little thrown off by the "excessiveness" in the beginning of this film I was pleased to see the pace quickly changed into an intriguingly heart wrenching and fist clenching experience. Pulling no punches in exposing the cruelty that exists in these rehabilitation centers you frequently find yourself a little uneasy with this films content especially upon remembering that this was based on true events . A lot of content is crammed into this sole title as the story is a melting pot of drama, action, and even a relatively strong love story. Not a dull moment is to be found within <more>
this running time. The visuals compliment the story well with a beautiful setting and equally stunning cast.
Within the first ten seconds, the movie introduction says, "There are over 200 hundred Boot Camps..." -_- Other than that, this movie was pretty amazing. I felt captivated from the first scene, and only became more intrigued as the story line progressed. There were some satisfyingly, unexpected turnouts, and I loved that. However, the ending...I didn't buy it.Overall, the plot made me think, and I could really feel for the characters. It's shocking to see that camps like this exist, but I feel that this film has definitely raised awareness. Definitely worth watching. Plus, <more>
Most of us are used to torture porn. With movies like Cabin Fever, Hostel, The Collector, and the countless Saws its a shock we can sleep. Those are all nice, though this one is real.The movie is about Sophie Mila Kunis . After he father's death, she is stressed out in her life. Her parents are worried about her odd and relentless behavior toward her new stepfather, so they send her to boot camp I would have sent her to a Daddy-Daughter Dance, saves money .Boot Camp members basically brutally kidnap Sophie and take her to a remote island off of Fiji. Instead of being a training camp <more>
like expected, it turns out to be an endless abuse and embarrassment school.People are locked in holes, thrown in mud, and beat with rods when refuse to do their work or just simply tired. Sophie's boyfriend Ben Gregory Smith does bad to get on the island and rescue her. But the strict leader doesn't like that.In the case of torture porn Horror movies. This one is real. The events in this movie actually occur. Unlike in Saw where a killer with lollipop circles on his face tries to lock you up in traps, this one is actually likable and realistic.The concept is stunning and meaningful and makes you feel as if you lived the story happening to these characters. Not a movie to watch twice, but definitely a must see kinda movie.Starring: Mila Kunis and Gregory Smith.
