Tough Coach Duke Goulding leaves nothing untried to lead his almost exclusively white boarding school basketball team, the Hawks, to victory after victory, but his own son Hugo feels his polyvalent technical excellence and tireless efforts -which require using stimulants- are not getting anything like the recognition he deserves, especially when coach gives the best player award to Odin James, the only black teammate, even saying he loves Odin like his own son, who in turn only calls super-rich Michael Cassio to share in the honor. So Hugo, who is liked by everyone, decides to set up the boys who stole his glory, and he knows a cocky adolescent's weak points are his pride and his girl. This Dixie Jago schemes to bring down a black Othello and his Cassio, playing into the poisonous power of jealousy, however badly this also hurts their loved ones and the whole team... Written by

All my life I always wanted to fly. I always wanted to live like a hawk. I know you're not supposed to be jealous of anything, but... to take flight, to soar above everything and everyone, now that's living.

O was a good teen film that comes out fast and ends up out in excitement. The story is about a frustrated teen (Josh Hartnett) who plays basketball with a star athlete,O (Mehki Phieffer) who's got everything, his entering in college basketball and the most popular girl in highschool, starts a plan to ruin O's life. Everything suddenly starts happening bad for O's life and everything then crumbles. The movie was very fascinating and everything in the film didn't make you bored because everything was stimulating and fast paced. There was some flaws in acting but it was still alright. The film is good and I highly recommend it.
Hedeen's outlook: 8/10 *** B
