Tras un desgarrador accidente aéreo en el mar, un grupo de cadetes americanos se encuentran aislados en una isla desierta. Dándose cuenta de las pocas posibilidades de ser rescatados, los muchachos se unen para vencer el miedo y la desesperación, pero mientras hacen de la isla su propio territorio, la competencia y la lucha de poderes los hace separarse en dos bandos. Ralph (Bathazar Getty) dirige a un grupo que pregona ingenuidad, civilización y unión, pero Jack (Chris Furrh) no quiere saber nada de eso y organiza un grupo de cazadores salvajes que acaban por irse a la guerra con Ralph. Este erérgico cambio interno transforma a chicos normales en verdaderos asesinos, montando una devastadora lucha entre el bien y el mal. Al final, esta inteligente dramatización nos deja una escalofriante metáfora acerca del lado salvaje que todos llevamos dentro

Secondo film basato sul romanzo di William Golding, questa versione della storia vede come protagonisti un gruppo di cadetti di un'accademia militare. Precipitati con l'areo sul quale viaggiavano in un'isola deserta, i ragazzi si radunano e cercano di organizzare una forma di convivenza. Ma una volta adattatisi al paradiso terrestre nel quale vivono, i ragazzi si dividono in due fazioni: una, guidata da Ralph, crede sia giusto convivere in ordine e civiltà; l'altra, condotta da Jack, si da alla caccia e alle barbarie. Tra i due gruppi nascerà un conflitto. (Musicafilm)

1 edition published in 1988 in Undetermined and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Eine Gruppe Jugendlicher ist nach einem Schiffbruch gezwungen, auf einer unbewohnten Insel das menschliche Zusammenleben neu zu organisieren. Das Experiment endet für einige von ihnen tödlich, da dumpfe Instinkte und Machtgier über Vernunft und Friedfertigkeit siegen. Neuverfilmung von William Goldings zivilisationskritischer Robinsonade, die den vielschichtigen Stoff weitgehend auf seine Handlungskonturen und platte Thesendialoge reduziert. Auch in der optischen Auflösung wenig zufriedenstellend, so daß die Chance zu einem anspruchsvollen Genrefilm verschenkt wird. Quelle: Lexikon des Internationalen Films (CD-ROM)
