  1. Surprisingly sweet and smart... LaBeouf does an excellent job, and the talented Beeney is one to watch.
  2. Another heartfelt coming-of-age story that plays much more like a television movie than a theatrical feature.

    In a better movie -- a much better movie -- LaBeouf might make the same sort of impact Dustin Hoffman did in ''The Graduate.'' But the kid's young. There are movies to come.

    The dubious whimsy, devoid of any directorial voice, plays more like a very special episode of Dawson’s Creek.
  5. If there is a delicate story of forgiveness, friendship and family buried somewhere in Erica Beeney's script, Potelle and Rankin haven't managed to find it under the throes of empty rebellion and painless triumph.

    Goes down fighting, but it goes down just the same.

    If you had watched season two of Project Greenlight in making The Battle of Shaker's Height, then you're definitely going to see the manyIf you had watched season two of Project Greenlight in making The Battle of Shaker's Height, then you're definitely going to see the many flaws within this film. Some of the performances were convincing like Amy and Shia's roles, but overall the film felt clunky and completely boring. This was a pretty forgettable movie and it's a shame that an original plot like this had to turn into a TV quality like movie. Collapse
