BEST REALITY FILM OF ITS TIME
17 July 2003 | by davealmightySee all my reviews

Watch out Scared Straight - Desperate Passage is the real deal! There are no actors or coaxed cons trying to seem tough for the camera. This is the first REAL look into today's "throw away" kids as they are here referred to. Real armed robbers, murders, you name it. They open up and for the first time we hear the heart cry of today's troubled youth. No wonder it won 4 Emmy's and it was a great final project (or close to) for Michael Landon. Bless you, Mike!
