Lord of the Flies is much better, spend your time reading that instead - meh, movie is a solid meh

The movie poster with two naked people made me expect a graphic and inappropriate movie. It's not nearly that bad, although it is for mature teenage audiences. The trailer is more intense and suggestive than the movie, for the most part, in case you watched that. Overall, not a very good show. Not very fun nor scary for adults, and too slow and mature for smaller kids. I'd estimate the average 15-17 yr old may like this movie, but then again… maybe not, it's not a great show. Lots of violence, and instinctive, base behavior. A few suggestive scenes, as mentioned in the CSMedia review, but nothing nearly as provocative as the naked bodies on the movie poster. There's definitely suggestive undertones of sexual tension, harassment, and almost borderline sexual assault. Definitely violence and evil intentions manifest early and continue throughout. SPOILER ALERT - possible spoilers below, depending on how sensitive you are (and if you've never read Lord of the Flies, pity on you, go read it first, it's much better than this drivel) Some details for concerned parents. About 51 minutes into the movie, a boy and a girl are shown fully clothed, embracing, panting heavily in a suggestive way. In another scene, approximately 1 hour and 5 minutes into the movie, there is a low-detail love scene. A boy and a girl are laying in bed together, fully clothed. Kissing, then it blacks out. Let's be clear - they're just holding hands next to each other in a sci-fi space bed, and they're kissing like teenagers kiss. Not too crazy, even in the view of this protective parent. Then it shows blurry images of skin. Armpits, maybe a leg/knee combo, maybe a thigh, probably the small of a woman's back, it's hard to tell what they're showing since it's so blurry and "artistic." Can't even really tell if I'm seeing a close-up of someone's thumb squeezed against his hand. Nothing overly graphic is shown, and it's extremely blurry. They seem to be clothed the entire time, but again it's so, so blurry. Then the scene shows them waking up together, boy in shorts and girl in sports bra and tighter shorts, laying in bed together. So it's implied, but very little is shown. Later, a dead body is shown, eyes open, face covered in blood. Not too realistic, so I guess it counts as PG-13, but it's more graphic than some early teenagers are used to.

This title has:

Too much sex
