Rim of the World (2019) Review


Rim of the World is a 2019 American science fiction adventure film directed by McG from a screenplay by Zack Stentz. It stars Jack Gore, Miya Cech, Benjamin Flores Jr. and Alessio Scalzotto.


The film, which was Stentz's modern take on the kid-centered action films of the 1980s, was streamed on Netflix on May 24, 2019.


It was the most watched content in the SVOD service in the UK the week it was released, overtaking the series Dead to Me and Riverdale.


Alex, a socially reclusive boy who recently lost his father in a fire, reluctantly attends a summer camp in southern California called "Rim of the World".


He meets two other "misfits" - Zhen Zhen, an orphan from China, and Dariush, an outspoken boy from a rich family. One afternoon, while in a lake, Zhen Zhen wanders off into the woods, looking for the lookout point she had seen on a camp poster, while Alex attempts to follow.


He comes across Dariush, who happens to be nearby answering the call of nature. Dariush mistakenly tries to 'cure' Alex's fear of heights by making him stand near a cliff edge, and Gabriel, a boy they hadn't seen at camp before, intervenes and helps stop Dariush from trying to 'cure' Alex's fear of heights. Zhen Zhen, hearing the commotion, comes back down and meets up with the boys.


At that moment, they all receive alarming texts advising they immediately evacuate the area.
