Movie Reviews

Michael Butts | Martinsburg, WV USA | 01/06/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This made for t.v. feature stars Kyle McLachlan (Twin Peaks, The Hidden) as a single father traveling across country with his son (Joseph Cross). A chance encounter with a strange couple with car trouble leads them to the quaint little town of Springville. Not such a bad place---everyone is young, and the reason is the titular spring, which acts as a sort of fountain of youth, with strings attached.
So as not to give away the plot's "secrets," suffice to say that Kyle finds out being young is not always being wise. Poor Kyle seems totally bored with his role and it's up to Alison Eastwood as the town doctor and George Eads as the local mechanic to bring some sort of life into this thinly structured plot. It's pleasantly gore free, and deaths are staged without blood and guts. It ends up being a less emphatic version of Shirley Jackson's classic short story, "The Lottery." But overall, not a bad movie, just nothing special."
Interesting concept but could have been better

"First off, I am a big George Eads fan, which is the primary reason I got this film. That being said, I think it was an interesting and rather intriguing concept but slowed and lagged after 45 minutes. The first half is very good especially how the town is introduced to us and how the director shows the intrigue build when we see the notebook with the dates of when people died. But after that is seems to lose itself and the climax was rather flat considering the build up leading to it. I expected something on the same level as the Lottery. I also thought that the son had a stronger moral and ethical streak in him than the father, whom I thought was being kind of selfish. I didn't think it was a great film but it wasn't bad enough that I wouldn't recommend it. Just don't expect much."
Pretty good for a TV movie.

"Admittedly, I only bought this movie because I am a huge fan of CSI's George Eads. When the DVD arrived, I expected to enjoy it moderately. I actually enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. Perhaps I'm biased because it was filmed in my home town of Fort Langley, BC (which at the time of purchase, I didn't realize) . . .

The acting is pretty good all around, I think. Some parts are cheesy and the story isn't exactly realistic, but it was a good movie to watch. All in all, I'm glad that I spent the $13 on it. I'll watch it again."
