Goes from dreadful to full of dread
- Lord of the Flies review by JD
For the first 20 the appalling acting is so difficult to forgive, even from child actors, that ejecting seemed a good option. The plot however is so gripping that despite the acting it is difficult not to be drawn into the characters and the situation. The barbarisation of schoolboys stranded on an island. The last 20 minutes are utterly compelling and lived with me for a few days. It is dreadfully sad, believable and a powerful exposure of the primitiveness of human psychology.
