Make no mistake, this is not great movie-making, and with that caveat out of the way, we shall proceed.

With many elements to love - precocious kids on motorbikes wielding paint guns outsmarting buffoonering adults - this bizarre, amateur school play of a movie does spin a yarn of charm that is undeniable. Forget the Swiss cheese plot, just crawl through the holes and enjoy the potty-mouthed kids as they serve up some whoopass comeuppance on the elderly fools that dare stand in their quest to fulfill a blueberry pie recipe for their ailing mother - bed ridden, with what seems to be just a common cold and a strange craving for pie. Once they deliver, she will hand over the password for their television so's they can play their favourite video game. Uh, yeah. Again, the plot is the weak link here, and frankly it seems to be deliberately childish. Like kids came up with this tall tale!

Shot in washed out and grainy 16mm film, this nails the eighties, which may or may not be reason to celebrate. Certainly not for the masses, this does have enough offbeat appeal to enjoy cult status, especially if mind-altering substances are involved. Perhaps one of those giant sugary sodas.

Much like someone you knew growing up, there is a kid with a fast and hard to follow slurry speech pattern. Brilliant solution: subtitles. No need for recasting or dubbing. If only life were so easy. "Riddle of Fire" is one crackpot movie that somehow captures the free-wheeling unbridled innocence of brash youth on a summery day epic adventure, when life was indeed easy. Nice and easy. And super weird.

Refreshing & Heartfelt

It's midnight hr in Toronto, as the lights dimmed and the audience settled in their seats, an immediate sense of excitement filled the air. Little did we know that we were about to embark on a heartwarming journey that would touch our souls and bring so much joy.

Director Weston Razooli is a superb storyteller, and this movie is a cinematic gem that transcends the boundaries of time and place to deliver a beautiful message about friendship, love & happy childhoods. Oh, to be a kid again!

In an age where films are typically more animated and characters are somewhat inhuman, "Riddle of fire" stands as a testament to the enduring power of storytelling and the human connection creating so much joy watching it. It's a film that reminds us of the importance of love, music (the scene with 'baby come back' had us all dancing), and the connections we share with one another.

Don't miss the opportunity to experience this touching masterpiece; it's a symphony of pure joy you won't soon forget.

Our children deserve more films like this. A new classic is born!

Soon to be classic movie

No one makes kids movies like this anymore. The only kid's movies you see made nowadays are animated. This movie just makes you leave the theater with a smile on your face. Beautiful on the big screen especially the night scenes, even more impressive knowing this is probably not a big budget film. Can't wait to see it in the US theaters. Gorgeous cinematography using authentic 16 mm film.

This takes you back in time with its nostalgic feel. This film is on the lines of Stand by me and Goonies.

The dance scene is memorable playing the favorite "Baby Come Back".

You can't go wrong when you Colby any kids movie with dirt bikes, paintball guns, and a classic bad guy in big John Redeye.
