A silent, unnerving and morally complex masterpiece.

Great movie but really sad

Deliverance with kids! Great movie especially if you want to see Josh from Drake and Josh say the f and c word

A visceral and saddening film. The emotions are shown clearly in these young people's eyes. Mean Creek is a hard watch as it holds nothing back from it's viewer, but it's ultimately a beautifully done film that presents a disappointingly accurate depiction of inhumanity

A very real film with a great cast, great writing, great acting, and extrememly riveting. Mean Creek is a perfect example of why indie films are so loved. A great coming of age tale that has such realistic ways of showing how youth treat each-other and how everybody talks. Mean Creek is perfection.

A dark twisted drama that is almost the antithesis of a coming-of-age film, but damn, does it play off well.

God! Haunting and complex! I mean, wow!

Deliverance meets The Lord of the Flies (with a twist on Stand by Me) in Jacob Aaron Estes' effective drama that sees young Rory Culkin and friends embark on a canoe trip, with the intention of teaching bully Josh Peck a lesson, only for things to go horribly wrong. The influence of John Boorman's imposing thriller is clearly evident but strong performances (Peck particularly) from the youthful cast grant the film a voice and power of its own.

Very good, not great though

A movie is good when one of the main character vomits due to his own actions, good and intense movie.
½ October 11, 2015
No coming of age movie is complete without someone climbing out of their bedroom window at night.

A movie that will make you squirm and shout at it's character to please not go there but one you gladly watch as they do.Stays with you for a while after viewing.

A film with a bunch of best young actors.
July 14, 2015
Well made thriller/drama. It takes you into the mind of a kid who has had enough of being bullied at school. With help from his friends, he plans a wilderness trip with revenge on his mind.

Mean Creek is one of the strongest teen movies I've ever seen.
April 13, 2015
The honesty and innocence of youth perfectly colliding with the horrific side of this thing called life, this film executes each scene with grace with incredible pacing that allows the daunting feeling to consume the viewer. The plot is easy to follow, but it's ability to entrap you into this situation with the characters are none to be ignored.

Pretty brilliant as coming of age stories go. Oregon/Estacada/Mt Hood millisecond screen shot blip represent.

Mean Creek is a movie about how undeniably cruel young people can be. The cast is really good here especially the girl who plays Millie. Josh Peck also does surprisingly good. The movie is a slow burner but when I gets going the movie is really intense I can't really say much about this movie without spoiling it all can say is Josh Peck is a bully and the boy he bullies (Rory Colkin) hatches a plan to execute revenge on him in a river the dialogue is good stories really good but like I said in the movie is about how cruel the youth can be if it's gritty and dark definitely watchable.
