EYE-BALL MovieZone Review:

If ever a movie could portray what is wrong with modern society through the eyes of our children – this movie does a damn good job.

The American education system gets all the blame for what kids turn out the way they do.  This movie turns the focus on the real problem – parenting and the abandonment children to fend for themselves in an ever increasing world of despair and loneliness.

This is not a movie that will win awards in the sense of popularism – it’s a movie that requires a mindset to see and digest what is in front of you – not to walk away because the images are too confronting.

This movie is a wake up call to understanding how society arrived at ‘skid row’ and how it looks from the next generations perspective.
