This is a fun, enjoyable short film with good concept about the boys' cabin at a summer camp getting out pranked in a prank war by girls' cabin. The concept is intriguing. There are some cool one shot sequences that make it feel kinetic. It does feel as if it was shot at an actual summer camp. The one thing I was disappointed about is that there are really no character arcs. That is its biggest problem. The acting is pretty good and the background music is well suited to the storyline. Actually, I think the music is one of the best attributes of the film. The message of the film is to always think one step ahead of your opponent. Some might object that it does show kids doing risky things that kids might imitate. My favorite part is the climax where the main characters are bombarded by pranks from the girls cabin. This does bring me back to my own summer camp experiences, in a hyped up version. I give this 3.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 4 to 13. I think anyone who has attended summer camp will definitely relate to this, as well as those who haven't but have experienced adolescence. Reviewed by Benjamin P., KIDS FIRST!

In this creative, high-energy story, a group of boys at summer camp plan a mischievous raid on the girls' cabins only for the advantage to be reversed as the boys face an ambush unleashed by a ruthless, well-oiled pranking machine.
