Real Life Crime Spree

"I teach a law class in San Francisco and we used this Video tape for a case study of a Crime Spree. While I understand there is considerable controversy over the public release of this video, I, for one, both support and encourage the viewing of this tape. I am a Victim's advocate and this tape does considerable good for the understanding of what really happens in the real world.In addition to the above product description and for those unfammilar with the news accounts of the events. Two kids (two young adults) basically went on a crime spree and video taped both their crimes, themselves, their feelings, their interactions with others. While some of the tape presents very violent acts,a lot of the tape lets you into the minds of these kids. While their acts can certainly not be condoned, when you step back from the situation, you can see how these kids went from good (but stupid) to extremely dangerous. This video is something that is both chilling and compelling. It created quite interesting debates in class and I would encourage people to see and discuss this tape."

"If you buy this dvd expecting to see a real crime spree, you'll be sorely disappointed. However, if you're looking to be entertained and shocked, Video X has its moments and keeps you riveted. However, it's a little bloodless and the backwoods country folk cliches are almost laughable at times."
Entertaining, fairly well done

"Anyone thinking this is real isn't very bright. This is clearly a blair witch style independent film. That doesn't make it bad though. It's an entertaining movie."
Fake? Yes. But believable nonetheless...

"I picked up this movie at the library of all places (as rentals are free) and could tell that, despite Vanguard's claim that this is real footage, it was fake. Unlike Blair Witch, however, it was believable. Some reviewers mentioned that the two didn't have a charger or spare tapes, but if you pay attention, at one point Dwayne mentions that he doesn't want to keep having to charge the batteries, and it's possible to put 101 minutes onto 1 tape. Be that as it may, during the final scene, the end result is predictable yet shocking. I found myself wanting more after the film was over, which I can't say for a lot of the so-called "blockbusters" that have been released recently. The creators, however, should have done a little more research into the handgun used, because at one point too many shots were fired without Dwayne reloading, but that's a minor point. Still, overall, it was well done and good for an emotional rollercoaster."
