After a plane crash in the ocean, a group of military students reach an island. Ralph organizes the boys, assigning responsibilities for each one. When the rebel Jack Merridew neglects the fire camp and they lose the chance to be seen by a helicopter, the group split under the leadership of Jack. While Ralph rationalizes the procedures, Jack returns to the primitivism, using the fear for the unknown (in a metaphor to the religion) to control the other boys, and hunting and chasing pigs, stealing the possession of Ralph's group and even killing people.Written by

When Ralph calls an assembly to discuss demerits for stealing, Roger's pants have been cut off to make shorts. Later, when Jack, Roger, and some other boys are throwing rocks at the fishing boys, Roger's pant legs are intact. See more »

The film Lord of the Flies is very mysterious because we never know what's going to happen. This film transmits to us how far a human being can go to survive, and how savage people can become when they are under pressure. I think this film doesn't transmit the meaning of the film title. Lord of the Flies is a very metaphorical film because the way of thinking and acting of the kids symbolizes the different personalities of the human society. The cast was well chosen but some of them, like the twins, their acting looked a bit fake, it didn't look natural. Not only that but the special effects aren't that good and we can see that clearly when the rock hits Piggy. I think that everyone should see this film.
