Lord of the Flies - another review

Lord of the flies is movie that certainly surprises you if you didn’t read same title novel written by William Golding. It’s a story about 20 young boys that end up on deserted island because their plain crashed into sea. From the start of their trouble you can see that they are very brave and capable to survive in rough environment. It is surprising that they had ideas how to light up fire and to find food even though you can see they were scared and confused. Two boys were more strong willed than the others so they split in two groups. That was the worst thing that could happen to them because the battles they started after splitting were turning into real and serious fights with deadly effect. Games they played at home on that island became real for them and in the end they didn’t noticed that friends they killed weren’t faking death. Their cruel behavior came out completely on surface when they kill their friends with pursue that they had to do it. It is ridicules how they excused themselves by imaging monster. Their goal was to make world from their imagination, world of tribes and pirates. The best scene in the movie is scene when they kill Piggy, it is even little funny. Piggy wanted to make peace and his speech was so honest and in the middle of it one boy just leaves his spear and throws a largest rock he could find on him. When he left spar I thought somebody there came to sense but he did exactly opposite. Now I know that kids should never be left alone, especially boys, because they have no boundaries in games. The end was happy but things they did were so shocking that you just cant be happy that they were saved. They didn’t deserve it.
