In the last few years, "Buddy" has become one of the most talked about documentaries of all time, and this movie proves why. In "Buddy", director Michael J. Nelson (the same director of "Hellboy") and editor-in-chief Jeffrey B. Moore (who also worked on "Hellboy") go back to the early '70s, when Chuckie (played by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) was a kid in Florida. Buddy is the son of a police officer, and is about to become a cop, but he gets caught up in a drug deal gone wrong and ends up with a dangerous drug lord named Tony (played by David Keith) and his right-hand man, Pete (played by Samuel Jackson). Buddy is asked by Pete to help him out of jail, and at the same time, he meets a woman named Jill (played by Sarah Jessica Parker) and becomes infatuated with her. He also gets caught up in a turf war with Pete, and all the while, he's dealing with a bad leg injury. It is through this strange combination of events that the film ends up being more than a simple biography of the people involved in the movie. This movie is funny, dramatic, and has a lot of great performances. The performances by Johnson and Parker are just amazing, and even the most controversial character in the film, Ron Perlman, is absolutely hilarious. Johnson's character is actually really great, and he's a really interesting character. I really can't think of anyone else who could have played Ron Perlman, because it's just so weird to think of a man with a gun for a head, but it's a brilliant performance. Sam Jackson is brilliant as well, as he's absolutely brilliant in this film. I really can't think of a bad performance. "Buddy" is a really great movie, and it's really great to watch. My favorite parts of the film are when Buddy gets to do a segment about his father's death, and how he wants to use the story to help him get a job as a cop. The best part about the film is how the director, Michael J. Nelson, gets inside of the mind of a 15 year old kid. He gets inside of the teenage mind, and how he's dealing with the drug trade, and how he deals with his father. It's really amazing to watch, and it's also really interesting to watch. I would recommend "Buddy" to anyone who is interested in film history, because it's a really good film. It's not the best documentary, but it's one of the best documentaries I've ever seen, and it's one of the best films of the year. "Buddy" is a really good film, and I would recommend it to anyone.

No one can claim that this documentary was anything other than an intellectual exercise. Even if you don't care for the "war on terror" or have a bone to pick with Bin Laden or Osama Bin Laden, this film will still be worth your time. It is a multi-faceted piece of work that will give you a lot of different perspectives and a lot of ideas to ponder over. Whether or not you care about the actual events and the real people involved in the events is immaterial. It's about the process, the personalities and the very real possibility that this could happen in our lifetime. The fact that these events did happen at all is a testament to the fact that these guys were in the wrong place at the wrong time. And in that sense it's as close to 100% accurate as you could possibly get. And no matter how much you might have a negative opinion about the actions taken by the American forces, it's really the Americans who have been involved in the war. These guys were soldiers who were fighting an enemy who had no intention of using "blood and gore" as a tactic. As far as the "forbidden truths" go, this film may not be entirely accurate, but it does address some things that I personally think are important. And I have to say, it's a pretty good film. It has a great pace and never drags, but it never really delves too deeply into anything. There's some really interesting stuff to learn and discuss. And the film does a really good job of laying out the issues and helping you sort through the issues and coming up with your own opinions. This is a very interesting film, and I recommend it for anyone who is interested in the subject. The only thing I would have changed is the way the film ended. It ended pretty abruptly. It was a little hard to follow, but I understand why the filmmakers went in that direction. 7/10

What's a film maker to do when the subject of the story he's chosen to tell isn't that interesting? Buddy is a film about a young man who's been thrown out of the house and finds his way home by wandering into a small town and befriending a young boy. The film follows him for the next four years and even after his near-death experience, Buddy remains a man with no regrets. Buddy is a true story, and it's the sort of story we've heard many times before, the kind of story that makes us want to go back to school and get some more education. It's a film that leaves you with the same kind of feeling as the guy who wrote the book. When we watch the film we know exactly what to expect, there's no way we can do anything differently. That said, this is a fascinating story and has a lot of potential. Buddy is the kind of kid who doesn't really want to go to school but feels like he has to go anyway. The little town of Winder, Oklahoma doesn't really seem like a place you'd want to live. At first the town seems like it's a poor little town but as the film goes on we see that Buddy has found a friend in the town's little boy. Buddy's life is not all happy and cheerful, but when the film is over we still want to go back to Winder to see if we can find out what happens next. I had the chance to talk to the director, Bruce McDonald, and the producer, Wayne Dreiling, about their film. They told me that the idea of Buddy came from a real-life man named Larry Young. Larry Young was a homeless man who was found abandoned in the middle of nowhere. He was found by a local woman and a couple of others and eventually adopted by a young boy. From the story I've heard and the image I've seen, it seems that the two people who wrote the screenplay for the film are fans of Buddy. They both saw a real human being in Buddy and wanted to make a story about him. There's even a connection between the people who wrote the screenplay and the real-life Larry Young. That's a great testament to the work they put into the film. I'll admit that the story is a bit hokey at times, but I think that the real people behind the story did a great job of telling it. I also enjoyed the whole approach the film took. The use of real footage of Buddy being tossed out of the house and the relationship he has with the kid he met in the town were clever and believable. The film isn't going to win any awards, but it's definitely worth a watch. If you're a big fan of Buddy, you should go see it. If you're not a big fan of Buddy, then I think you should give it a chance. It's worth it.
