About the Movie
A group of at-risk are sent to a rehabilitation program housed in a remote camp on the island of Fiji. The film follows Sophie, a Denver teenager who misses her real father and dislikes her new stepfather. When her "acting out" leads to a serious disturbance at a social function, her parents end her to the Advanced Sensitivity Achievement Program (ASAP) in the remote Fiji islands. Although her parents believe that ASAP is a state-of-the-art deluxe institution in a beautiful natural environment turns out to be a prison-like boot camp where they are abused and brainwashed. When her boyfriend back in Denver learns of the true nature of the program, he causes himself to be sent to the camp as well in order to help her escape.
an entertaining story of mutiny and overthrow of a dictated child's "boot camp." I have a hard time believing stuff like this really happens though. Send your kid to a boot camp in the US next time :)
Worth seeing, worth owning
It's a good movie, got an intertesting story about how "boot camps" can abuse their power and have that power back fire on them. And mixed in, is a story about how far someone will go to rescue a loved from a dangerous situation. Oh and the movie has MILA KUNIS :), really can't go wrong with her.
hard to watch but good.
Well the movie was relatively good, and at the same time, one is allowed to witness the injustices that went on in this supposed true story. It was a real eye opener to a very real problem and frequently while watching it, I became infuriated with the idea that kids are treated like slaves. Of course, im not saying all of these types of camps are bad but im sure there are some like this that really need to be dealt with. I know from experience how devasting one of these camps is on people because my sister was forced by my parents to go to a very similar camp, where she claimed she witnessed outright cruelty and what she called a murder. When she returned she had lost education opportunities, lost friends, a romance; she got a job, quickly moved out, and my parents have never seen her again. In fact,they tried to visit her children and she got a restraining order against them. She believed our parents knew her crimes did not deserve that level of punishment and she knew that they knew exactly how bad it really was, but they still believed that horrible camp was the best option. My sister's story and "Boot Camp" are perfect examples of how "tough love" can go terribly wrong, and I strongly reccomend it to anyone who's looking to enlighten themselves with knowledge of a relatively unknown crime.
