A group of 13-year-old friends play an innocent game of Capture the Flag in the neighborhood woods, arming themselves with nothing more than sticks, their imagination and a simple set of rules. One afternoon the game takes on a more serious tone and the quest for victory pushes the boundaries of friendship, giving the would-be warriors a glimpse of the darker side of human nature as their imaginations take them beyond the rules of the game and into an adventure where fantasy blurs with reality.

So loyalties established and the pecking order truly in place - the game can begin. But what should just be a simple game of kill your mates and grab a flag turns into something much darker. Many issues are looked at here and it is not always subtle but it is engaging.
All of the young cast put in great performances but this is not a comedy as has been claimed a couple of places. It has also been called a `modern day Lord of the Flies'; well that is very misleading indeed, but it is still a good film. Made in Canada and all in English and a run time of 94 minutes which means it doesn't out stay its welcome. I rented mine and that may be the better option as once you have seen the twists there will be little need for further viewings.
I found the film thoroughly entertaining, and it brought back fond memories of my youth.
