Linderman getting humiliated/beat up


I love this film, yet I can't watch the scene where Moody & Mike humiliate & beat up Ricky & trash his bike. I just felt so bad for Ricky, he just stood there, taking it in front of Clifford & his friends. He let himself get pushed around and they beat & kicked him & threw his bike into the brook. Talk about humiliation…….I'm glad he came back at the end & got even with them, but it's hard to watch that first part, and not feel for him in that park !!!!

I really HATED Mike & Moody.

That was hard to watch. It still is.

It is but when you know he's going to kick some major ass at the end it makes it easier to watch.

Linderman was actually a good guy not realy a mean tough guy? he just went through many problems in life got a bad rap, now he was enjoying new friends in the park then all of a sudden Moody shows up with that *beep* mike and just catches him of guard!

reply

Yes it was very hard to watch :(

I hear you, that scene is infuriating! It never gets any less tense to watch.

But this scene does make the ending all the more satisfying. Linderman & Clifford ultimately got their revenge on those thugs, and man was it great.

It just shows how much of a problem Linderman had with the events of his life. He was going to have that for the rest of his life even after the found acceptance and beat up Mike.
