When i read the storyline, i found it really interesting, although not very original. And most of the movie is really good, but i think the story should have been more developed. The first part of the movie shows a bit of the characters and then their little trip to the river and the development of their plan. But the movie ends just when it starts to get interesting. They should have explored mor... read more

"November 7 I'm glad I found this movie. The story of the film isn't really original, but it's done so well and the kids have good perfomances in this one. The first half is good, but the second half is where it gets intense. "

“"You know, when we graduate high school, and become doctors and lawyers and all that kind of stuff... what do you think it would be like?"

Jacob Aaron Estes spent years working on a screenplay for his debut feature film, and the result is 2004's Mean Creek; a multifaceted, deceptively straightforward spin on the coming-of-age genre. Both harrowing and emotionally devastating, writer-director Estes made the most of the scant $500,000 budget he had at his disposal, using candid writing and an astonishing cast of young unknowns to elevate what could've easily been a cheap retread of similar productions. Mean Creek is unflinching in its ugly examination of morality and the human condition, with a story that spotlights a handful of innocent children marching towards adulthood who are ” read more

A good movie

“I thought it was pretty good. It reminded me of "Bully" since both movies deal with the revenge on a bully but I have to say that "Bully" was superior. This time, the directing was very good and the children gave impressive perfomances. The only weak point was the story which a little too short for me and not as intense as "Bully". However, in spite of its flaws, it remains a good movie and it is definitely worth a look.” read more

"Watched 28.5 ---------- Kertoo nuorista, jotka kostoksi leikittelevät kiusaajan kustannuksella, mutta homma päätyykin aika huonosti. Ei herätä mitään maailmaa mullistavia tunteita, mutta silti jollain tasolla koskettaa ja pistää mietityttämään."

"Rory Culkin plays Sam Merrick who is beaten up by the town bully George Tooney (Josh Peck). When Sam's older brother Rocky (Trevor Morgan) finds out he immediately wants revenge. He enlists the help of his friends Marty and Clyde (Scott Mechlowicz & Ryan Kelley) to play a devious prank on George but things soon get out of hand. "

“The movie follows a group of teenagers who invite the local bully along for a boating trip. They have set up an elaborate plan to humiliate the bully on the boating trip. During the trip there is a accident and the kids are forced to make decisions and consider the consequences of those actions. The movie is powerful in the sense that the kids have been placed in an uncomfortable situation and they have to decide what is the best way to handle it. The acting was pretty good and was entertaining throughout the movie. I would recommend this to drama fans, however if you don't like sad endings this one is not for you.” read more
