Michel D. (michelann) from WALNUT GROVE, MO

I was pleasantly surprised at this movie! It is actually very good. Travolta is Scott Barnes a social worker who is determined to help a boy (Joey Lawrence) who is running with the wrong crowd. He encounters bad guys like gang leader Carlos (Benjamin Bratt from Law & Order fame)and must fight for the boy's as well as his own life. Lots of action, great acting, and a good script for a made for TV movie!

"I brought this movie strickly on impulse from my work. It cost me $2.99, brand new (dvd). I'd never seen it before, but was very impressed. I know it is a TV movie, but nonetheless, it is very watchable. I can watch it several more times, in fact. After watching movies like these, you gain respect for independent films.There are bad reviews for this movie out there, but I say hire it out and make up your own mind. A Travolta classic!"
