|The most startled|
First important fact. Bad old Johnny (William Zabka), from The Karate Kid (1984), is in this film. He hasn't learned much, it appears, now drinking his sorrows away and making more bad choices.
Second important fact, David DeSanctis, in his first feature film, does a wonderful job in his role as Produce.
Third important fact, the story contained a number of tropes or cliches. But I acknowledge it must be a challenge to make a film without any.
Fourth important fact, I was not tricked at the part where the plot twist threw us for a curve. But the teenage girl with Down syndrome who was sitting two rows in front of me was devastated and her distress made me cry. She was the reason I want to be positive overall about this film.
