Random Passage is a six hour long mini series that really delivers on it's content. The series is separated into 4 parts, kind of like a TV show, but every episode is an hour and a half long. Now, with that sort of run time, I thought I would get really bored, really fast, but, to my surprise, it was a top notch Mini-Series, with great acting, great characters, and a great story. Even though I thought all of those things, my absolute favorite part was one scene, it's entirely pointless, never mentioned after it's done and over with, but good god is it funny. (No Spoilers, Remember, This Scene Is Pointless and Happens Around Half Way Through) OK, this big kid who lives in Random Passage is annoying a little kid, which is basic stuff, seen in movies before, nothing special, but then the older boy puts his finger on a tree stump and tells the younger boy he's to chicken to cut off his finger with the axe. So, let's make this clear: A young boy who's bullied by a older boy has an axe, pushed to insanity by the older boy, then the older boy puts his finger on the tree stump... Yes, the young boy does it, and that would be a shock, but the older boy was so annoying, I laughed so incredibly hard, it shook my whole couch. It was completely AWESOME. But in all seriousness, this movie is not just about that, it goes deep into character struggles and the difficulties of living in a small, poor area. It feels incredibly realistic and also tragic, which makes it a really well done and enjoyable series. Now, that we've gotten the good stuff out of the way, let's get to the complaints. First, everybody dies. No, not everyone, but most everyone does, and it kinda gets predictable after a while. Second, it covers a few years in the series, but the only people who seem to age are the kids. Well, that's it. It's hard to get into detail, but, hey, I really enjoyed it, so I didn't find many flaws. Overall: It's long, but never boring. 5 Stars.
