    Default Apt Pupil -- The Film

    This was an under appreciated film. Ian McKellen did an outstanding job as a former SS commander in WWII. Of course, he always does a great acting job (ever see his Richard The III? He was awesome). Renfro, too, was excellent.

    Just my .03 cents worth.

    100% agree...but having Star Movies show this film for a considerable amount of time makes up for the "underappreciation."

    I love the fact it was the boy that turned out to be the evil one. His obsession was frightening. Outstanding performances from both Renfro and McKellen.

    I wonder if a soviet-america would produce boys like that.

    Really? I thought this was a turkey.
    Renfro was awful and Sir McKellan wasted his time.
    It also had a script that left much to be desired and a director who hadn't completed teething. Mr. Singer did a great job on other (read: later) flicks but truly showed poor judgment when he didn't cast Heath Ledger as Todd.

    I hated that they screwed up the ending but I really did like the fist 2/3 of it.

    Well, they really crossed the ending... But may be, there is any message in such change, don't you think so?

    Anyway, one of the most strained episodes:
