Storyline
After a plane crash in the ocean, a group of military students reach an island. Ralph organizes the boys, assigning responsibilities for each one. When the rebel Jack Merridew neglects the fire camp and they lose the chance to be seen by a helicopter, the group split under the leadership of Jack. While Ralph rationalizes the procedures, Jack returns to the primitivism, using the fear for the unknown (in a metaphor to the religion) to control the other boys, and hunting and chasing pigs, stealing the possession of Ralph's group and even killing people.

User Review

Don't get your hopes up

Rating:

I've read the book so many times and after seeing the first 1963
adaptation
of the movie I admit I was a little let down. I was surprised they didn't
put in the Simon scene (which is probably one of the most important
scenes
in the book) and a lot of other important things they missed out on. But
then, once I found out there was another version of the movie I quickly
rented it. But let me tell you something;
This is movie is much worse than the first one, and does an awful job of
telling the storyline.
Although the boys were very adorable (I'll admit that)that still didn't
make
up for the bad acting job they did. Plus, I was really confused on why
the
director chose to make a nonexistent captain the most important symbol in
the book. Why he did that is beyond me. So anyways, my point is, if your
looking for a good movie based on the book, you should probably just
stick
to the first one, and don't waste your money on renting/buying this
movie.
