Yeah, kind of hard to feel for these kids.
Mark Turner
It is sad teenagers feel this way, that they have to be popular at any cost.
Gemma Cheyne

I saw this film when it first appeared in the theaters and thought it quite good. The running narrative by Keifer Sutherland keeps it searingly realistic. The pyshcology of the movie is what kept me riveted. Gave me alot to think. about. I've since bought a personal copy.

There are too many sub-plots and characters introduced in this story so it lacked depth and good character development. However, Emma Roberts and Chace Crawford gave very solid performances. I've never followed either actor much and I admit that I expected Chace Crawford to be just another pretty face - but in this movie he proves there is more to him than just good looks. He is actually a very decent actor.

Twelve is a major disappointment on many levels. It's about a teenage boy who has to quit school and deal drugs so his classmates feel content having their fix. The problem? That's pretty much all that happens, other than several parties and a few sex scenes. Only one particular shooting scene caught my attention for the shock value. It's so much a teen flick that an adult wouldn't be able to sit through this plotless nonsense. In addition to these problems, Kiefer Sutherland does the narration and it's a VERY rare day when I'm disappointed in a movie starring Kiefer Sutherland. He made a mistake signing up for this pitiful role. Avoid.

Okay this movie rocked, it's a definite must see! It was shot in a very different way, and had some narration too, which at first made you think what? And then you get into it, and you like the variation. And the monotone voice overshadowing the action brewing up on the screen, it's very soothing. And then this movie picks up, in my opinion doesn't let up, and then after building up and bringing us to a dramatic climax, it brought me to tears at the very end. All the actors played their roles to a T... Just watch it, you won't regret it!

The main problem with this movie is that few scenes build character. Instead the movie builds character through third person narration, which was irritating after 10 minutes. Too much narration in this case was a sign of a poor scene adaptation.

Twelve is the name of a designer drug which seems to be a combination of a an XTC and cocaine high except it is more addicting. You know when people use it because the camera goes out of focus. It actually plays only a minor role in the film, despite the title.

"White Mike" is the main character. He doesn't do drugs, he just deals them. For some reason when his mother died from cancer he had to quit school and deal drugs, a plot point that didn't make much sense. He buys drugs in Harlem and then sells them to upper crust kids on the East Side in the part of New York City where no one has a New York accent. The movie centers more around the kids.

Parental Guide: Very brief nudity, quick sex scenes, F-bomb, violence, and of course underage alcohol and drug use. The movie might have an appeal to the teens. I would suggest others avoid it.

TWELVE is a film that is at first terrifying in its message about the irresponsible, uncontrollable drive for physical gratification among the wealthy youth of New York, and then a film that makes us profoundly sad that this is what we in our permissive, no established behavioral boundaries society have produced. Joel Schumacher knows his game and once again forces us to examine what we have produced in failing to give our younger generation the security for learning guidelines for social interaction. Jordan Melemed adapted Nick McDonell's novel for the screen and the flow of the story is in the form of offscreen narration by Kiefer Sutherland.

'Twelve' is the new play drug in the party circles of New York City and is supplied to the kids by Lionel (50 Cent), all other drugs being the purview of White Mike (Chace Crawford), a lad whose mother's death from cancer has left him aimless, electing to deal drugs rather than join his confreres in going to the 'proper colleges'. White Mike watches as his high-rolling life is dismantled in the wake of his cousin's murder, which sees his best friend arrested for the crime. White Mike believes that his fellow youth don't need anything, they just want everything and the nexus of his philosophy is drugs. A grossly dysfunctional family of boys - Chris (Rory Culkin), Hunter (Phillip Ettinger) and Claude (Billy Magnussen) - have 'famous parties' in their parents' absence especially for the local bedbunny Sara (Esti Ginzburg). Another sad character is Jessica (Emily Meade) who takes 'Twelve' by mistake and then becomes addicted while her floozy mother (Ellen Barkin) and her supplier Lionel alter her life. The murder of White Mike's cousin and the subsequent effect it has on the rest of these young people leads to a disastrous conclusion.

There's a genre of film out there that isn't all that big but that folks in film making seem to think reflects more people watching film than actually exist. Then again perhaps not because the characters in these films rarely watch anything because they're too busy talking about themselves and how wonderful yet empty their lives are. I'm talking about the movies that feature a young cast starring as bored socialite teens involved in any and all things possible. Perhaps LESS THAN ZERO started this genre but the most recent addition is TWELVE.

Chace Crawford stars as White Mike, known as such because he deals drugs to his ex-friends. A year ago Mike's mother died of cancer and Mike hasn't actually dealt with that. With the costs of her treatment, Mike and his dad have fallen on hard times with his dad losing his business, taking a more menial job and Mike pretty much left on his own.
Apparently the best way to help is to close yourself off from the world and deal drugs to vapid upper crust teens.

The story revolves around Mike and is more narrated than acted. While you watch a group of these teens walking down the street, the narrator (Kiefer Sutherland) tells you who they are and everything about them. And there are plenty of characters in this group. Suffice to say that every one of them, with the exception of Mike's friend from the past Molly (Emma Roberts) who isn't part of the spoiled rich crowd, find themselves with plenty of money and no adult supervision whatsoever.
