In 'I Declare War,' a pretend game of war between kids goes way too far when one over-zealous boy takes the rules into his own hands. An intense rivalry develops as PK, the general from one camp, tries to adhere to the rules and play an honorable game, while the smarmy Skinner from the opposing camp does the unthinkable and takes a prisoner, throwing the whole game into upheaval.
'I Declare War' is an inventive film that embraces the seriousness of childhood imagination, while affectionately acknowledging the lack of wisdom in adolescence.
