I'm a big fan of Leo Howard and BooBoo Stuart. The film was what I would call an amateur film but the content, plot was great. The acting wasn't great by the other actors but I was able to overlook it due to the subject matter and, as I stated before, being a fan of Leo and Boo Boo. It was over all a good movie. Amazon, again came through. Price, the time it took to recieve dvd was excellent.

This is an excellent DVD about the crisis of Suicide among our youth. This kind of information on a media communication would
have been very helpful to me in my youth because at the age of 13, I had a friend who committed suicide. Our Pastors and
Priests were all we had and they were outstanding as their compassion and professional counsel helped me and my friends
through a horrid tragedy. Sensitivity and Listening to another person in crisis - and a help hand - cut across all ages both young
and old. The Movie, "Logan" is worthy of your purchase and viewing. Always remember there are those who look up to others -
be there for them.

This is really a lower budget movie with a powerful message. The adult actors could use some lessons but the younger actors, especially Leo Howard, did a great job. The writers and producers should be commended for this film. Although it did run as a lower budget film, it was one of the best theme driven dramas I've seen in a very long time. It's not an Oscar winner; it's better than that....it's a truthful film.

Without going into details of the movie which will spoil the affect, I can honestly say that this film will make you want to sit with your family or friends and discuss issues that you would normally not talk about openly and honestly. It's an eye opening movie that will have you wondering about those around you.

Logan was powerful. It might have been a lower budget film, but I'm very glad I watched it.

My family have watched this over and over several times and love it. The story is very good and the actors seem very professional. The story does a very good job at dealing with some very difficult subjects. The three main characters,(Leo Howard, Booboo Stewart and Patrick Probst) do a great job and compared to a lot of movies on TV these days, this is definately one of the best I've seen. This has a GREAT ending and great music ! We love it so much, we have bought extras to give as gifts !

I'd heard about this film, and was perplexed not to see it (then) available in the UK. By total chance, I ended up buying something else from Amazon USA and found the film listed on that site. I ended up paying what I consider 'rather over the odds' (down to import taxes perhaps) for this film, but I don't in the least regret searching it out.

The write-up I had read about it was accurate: it is a moral tale, and like some USA films aimed at families carried a fairly prominent Christian message. I was relieved to find that this did not in any way spoil the film because sometimes such a stance does affect the 'reality' of the storyline.

I found it an uplifting tale, well-acted and filmed. The youngsters were pretty credible; I am a long-serving state school teacher so I know what is and is not believable in screen portrayal of children. In short, it's an engrossing and largely realistic tale, well told, and one feels genuinely uplifted at the denoument. I have kept actual description of the storyline to a minimum here so as not to spoil anyone's enjoyment.

Perhaps a little far fetched in so far as brotherly relationships, but yes I could imagine a relationship like this but not so intense as the film portrays. I liked the story line and the acting was good. The underlying story about youth suicide, shows quite clearly how sensitive young people are about the way they are portrayed by their peers.
Youth suicide is a big issue in most so called civilized countries, unless we get rid of the bigetory, and name calling within our youth culture its not going to get any better unfortunately. Unfortunately this subject matter is swept under the carpet here in Australia, and education authorities are lothe to talk about it, even the news papers do not report suicides. I believe this would be good viewing for upper primary school children, and into high schools..
At least the film portrays a happy ending but only just.....

This movie is an absolute MUST see for all preteens and teens. It does deal with some issues that are very real these days- bullying and teen suicide. This movie is very clean, and there is nothing in it that is bad. The theme of suicide is dealt with in a very dignified way. Depending on the age and maturity level of your child, you may want to watch it first. My nine year old has seen it. We viewed it together, and have had many conversations about bullying as a result. This is a great way to start a conversation with your family about topics that really matter.
For all of the reviewers who say the actors are not good- this is a low budget film. It doesn't always have to be about the money and special effects, and highly paid actors. In this case, it is about taking a stand against bullies, and teen suicide. It is about saving lives, and educating parents and teachers. Bullying and Suicide are topics that is often ignored, or not taken seriously, until it is too late. This film should be seen by every kid, teacher, and parent and in every high school and middle school across the USA! It is heartwarming, funny, real, and has a twist. Excellent Movie- As a mom of four kids, I highly recommend it!

This is a good movie that shows how we all have an influence on others, whether directly or indirectly. The budget may not be very high, but getting out the message of anti-bullying and appreciating that each of us is uniquely created is definately a high priority these days. I thought the St. Louis "Muny" kid did a great job of acting alongside the Hollywood actors.

This was tastefully done and handled in an interesting and realistic manner. It had me in tears. I really enjoyed the characters and how they matured and developed. Teenagers need to be listened to as they grow up. No one should go unheard. I enjoyed it even more the second time I watched it.

Yes, this is a low-budget movie. Yes, at first it just seems like another hackneyed, pre-chewed, slow-moving, Disney-esque movie about an artistic kid with high aspirations but only a family of shallow self-absorbed, 2-dimensional characters for support.

But then something happened. A movie totally surprised me: shocked me: got me to sit up and pay attention. It took me for a very intense ride that I was not expecting. It was like the first half of the movie was all a set-up for an expertly-delivered 1-2 punch that drove home the fact that this movie has a purpose and a message beyond simple coddling entertainment. Reviewers giving it poor ratings have perhaps missed this. This is NOT an "entertainment piece" there spoon-feed Pablum-entertainment. It's more a public service wearing the trappings of very likable movie (for the first 1/2; an excellent movie for the last 1/2!).

And the purpose and the message deal with several VERY prevalent youth issues in our society today. In light of this -- and how expertly the writers, directors and actors take you for an unexpectedly intense journey -- EVERY single negative thing I might have pecked away at suddenly falls into the category of "utterly irrelevant". It's not all spit-and-polish. But it's amazing how well such a powerful message is carried by so few, young actors. They have distinguished themselves.

This movies is here to do a LOT more, than just entertain.
It's here to try to save lives.
5 stars isn't enough.

(But I would warn that this is NOT a kids' movie; and that parents of more sensitive tweens might want to pre-view it first. Even if you don't pre-view, watch it with your young people. Take the roller coaster ride with them.)
