Suspense Thriller - A limp, unintelligent thriller that steals from John Grisham's The Firm and sets the results on a college campus. Will appeal only to the young who prefer to turn their minds off while watching movies.

Critic's Review Heading
Poor
The Skulls, a thriller from director Rob Cohen, has the same problem as many other teen (or, in this case, barely post-teen) movies in the same genre: a script that, during its best moments, can charitably be called uninspired. The movie plays like a younger version of the filmed adaptation of John Grisham's The Firm, complete with pointless action sequences, a lack of genuine suspense, and a lazy sense of storytelling. It opens with an intriguing premise, and some of the early sequences, while not masterpieces of composition or creativity, are engaging. Unfortunately, it doesn't take long for things to begin the slippery slide into mediocrity before plunging off a precipice into idiocy, and the contrivances pile up more quickly than snowfall in a Buffalo winter.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Luke McNamara (Joshua Jackson) pays the ultimate sacrifice for fitting in. Once the over-achieving New Haven townie is able to claw his way into an Ivy League College, he is invited to join an elitist secret society known as The Skulls. He jumps at the chance, hoping it will help secure his acceptance into a prestigious law school. At first seduced by the club's upper-crust trappings, Luke finds himself ensnared by his own ambition when his journalist roommate commits suicide amidst cloudy circumstances. Now at the risk of his own life, he must outwit The Skulls at their own game.
