    Synopsis


    Lord of the Flies
    Harry Hook directed this second screen adaptation of William Golding's cult novel about a group of British schoolchildren who revert to savagery when marooned on a deserted island. The new adaptation replaces British school children with a group of American military cadets and instead of a shipwreck, their plane crashes into the sea. The children swim ashore onto an island and try to fend for themselves, with the only surviving adult wracked with fever and crazed with pain. As the children get the feel of the island, the group separates into two different camps: Ralph (Balthazar Getty) and his followers prefer to act civilized and want to expand their efforts toward finding a way off the island; on the other hand, Jack (Chris Furrh) and his band revert to painting their faces, carrying spears and exploiting the island for survival. When the chances for rescue become less and less likely, the two factions go to war with each other, with tragic results. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

      I watched this movie when it first came out in the theaters. I guess the only complaint I have about this movie is that it doesn't have the director's/actors' commentary I thought all the characters did such a good job considering that most of them were under the age of 14. Baltazar Geddy was phenomenal as Ralph and the twins were extremely creepy. When the others break Piggy's glasses, you can't help but feel his pain. During the climactic conclusion, you can't help but feel the intensity of the emotions in that instant. The movie is very graphic and may not be suitable for small children.

      My grand-daughter had a book report to complete on "the Lord of the Flies". The visuals provided by the flim helped her to understand the fear the boys were experiencing.

      Not a fan of the story in particular, the greatest memory I have of this film was getting yelled at by my teacher in junior high, for laughing at some of the more violent scenes of what I considered to be a waste of time movie. Widescreen with ample bonus.

      Picture quality is ok, understandable for a 90s film. Disc art and packaging are nice.

      Excellant political movie using young boys to demonstrate the need for rules and gang behavior.
