The Boys Club Reviews

    There isn't a whole lot going on, and it takes a while to really get anywhere, but it is rather interesting. The characters aren't the strongest point, but there is some decent suspense and good moments. Plenty of bad parts though.

    The Boys Club takes place in a small town in Ontario. During a teacher's strike, three bored 14 year old boys hang out in an abandoned shack in the forest that no one else seems to know about. One day, they discover a man in their shack, who claims to be a cop and has been shot in the leg. He tells them he has been shot by another cop and that he needs to stay for awhile and then will be on his way. The boys help him get cleaned up, tend to his wounds, bring him food and alcohol and bullets for his gun. Later, we learn that the man is not a cop, but a cop killer and towards the end of the movie, he turns on the boys. The fugitive is played by Chris Penn, who, in my opinion gives an excellent performance - perhaps the best in his career. Watch for a cameo with singer Bif Naked, as the Liquor Store Manager.

    Chris Penn does a really good performance (maybe his best) in this exciting thriller.

    I used to obsess over this movie, I thought the premise sounded so cool and dark and I got really excited because it seemed like a good thriller. AND it wasn't too bad, but not that great either. I used to think Devon Sawa was such a bad ass, and while he grew up to be kind of a wiener, he isn't too bad here. And Chris Penn is awesome, it's a shame he had to leave us.

    Obscure Canadian indie starring Chris Penn probably served as inspiration for other, better indies in the genre.

    yeah alright so not the best acting, but Chris Penn was pretty awesome throughout the whole movie. It is a great Canadian classic and one of my favourite movies of all time, if you get a chance make sure you watch it!!
