Easily one of the best movies of the year so far, I absolutely loved it. Funny, charming and completely relatable, but also really disturbing and very powerful. It also featured some amazing performances from the cast (all of whom are kids). I highly recommend seeing it.

"We shall pay our price, bear any burden, oppose any foe to never surrender our flag"; like Gary Larson's "The Far Side" where the cartoonist puts animals in human situations, there's something in movies that's funny when kids are placed in adult situations. If you like kids cussing, were a fan of the 70's movie with Jodie Foster and Scott Baio, "Bugsy Malone", or "Kelly Leak" and Tatum O'Neal in the 70's version of "Bad News Bears" this modern movie will take you to that same, rare place. It reminded me of being a kid playing war in the jungle but without the landowner kicking you off their property 15 minutes into the game. I thoroughly enjoyed this gem.

Holy Crap what a unique take on a kids game I played all the time. They take a simple thing and make it into something truly unique. The personality of the actors worked well and they stay true to form all the way to the end. How much cussing and killing can kids do without mental damage? The director must have watched a lot of WWII films and adapted it to this screenplay. How else can you explain the kid's desire to win at all cost, even true friendship. Of course they had to throw in some drama and relationship issues but that is ok. Had this been a Tarantino movie it would have just been a lot more blood and guts.

This is a trip down memory lane and how kids relate on an interpersonal level. It's tough to be a young boy growing up in the U.S.A. with adults playing War as a major way of relating to people different from us on racial, ethnic, cultural, and national identities. Adult life, being the kid who sees through the insanity; like the boy at the end, who went home turning down the invite to watch a movie is a metaphorical message! It is a message of hope that perhaps someday the kid in leadership might not garner the power base to keep playing at aggression and endless Wars!

This was a very likeable and unusual film. I liked that it did not pull any punches in terms of honesty portraying childhood war games. The portrayal of the group psychological dynamics, was this film's greatest achievement. Yes, when we were young, we did all of those "bad" things when we were kids...We cussed, smoked and even drank and did other "bad" stuff....and we also played war in the woods with good friends and not so good friends. Those actors must have loved working with that hardware! There were also clever little "nods" to other movies in there as well... Watching it gave me that familiar and comfortable feeling, like eating a bowl of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwhich. This was a decent movie, I'll end up watching this one again.

I can't guarantee the same experience for everyone. But this was one the best films I've seen in ages. I found it to be emotionally moving, and not because it was uplifting or a tearjerker, I assure you this film is neither. Rather I was touched by nostalgia, as this is how we played war out in the middle of the woods, right down to using the metal roofs as barricades. It brought insight to my childhood, refreshed my memory and allowed me to remember what it was like. I had a lot of fun playing war, and I grew out of that desire, in the end it was about the friendships I had and being apart of something. This film successfully matches that experience. I honestly don't know who to recommend this to, other than those played war like it mattered.

This is not a family movie just because the cast is entirely kids. There is strong, adult language. It's a bit like Lord of the Flies without the real casualties. Definitely a dark look at war and how kids form and end friendships. Loved how the film went from imagination to reality, with real guns, explosions, bullets, etc.

Remember the days when you used to play `war' with your mates? Well this is what this film is all about - but it is also about a whole lot more. Split into two groups these guys have a very well organised game of `war' - with rules and everything - we just used to shoot the bejesus out of each other. One group is led by P.K. Sullivan and he has a sidekick in best pal Paul Kwon. They are up against a chess and tactics loving Quinn. Quinn's disparate command contains Skinner who has behavioural issues and a girl! Yes these guys are all equalitied up and have Jessica. She is a bit on the calculating side and has a girlie crush on Quinn.

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.
