Lord of the Flies In the Lord of the Flies a movie based on the novel by William Golding a group of young pre-adolescent boys are shipwrecked on an island and they are on their own to fend for themselves It would make the most sense for these boys to work together as a survival strategy until they are rescued but that concept is overlooked by the majority of them A strong message is conveyed to the viewer about the raw instinctual nature of human beings The main characters of the movie are Ralph Jack Piggy and Simon Ralph is nominated the chief in the beginning He has a good head on his shoulders and he attempts to get everybody to work together to get food and shelter He tries to convince the other boys that it is not the time to be goofing around and that they should be working hard as a group if theyre going to survive Jack is a rather outspoken boy who motto is my way or the highway in a sense He wants to be the leader himself and tries to turn the other boys against Ralph Hes very aggressive and barbaric-like He eventually convinces the other boys to join him and they become a savage tribe on a different part of the island Piggy is a short fat kid that gets picked on by all the other boys Hes very intelligent and down-to-earth and he tries to remind the others that they should be acting like civilized human beings not like savage beasts Hes the only one with glasses which are the only source for successfully building a fire for signaling and cooking Hes the only one who sticks by Ralph throughout their stay on the island and is apathetically killed in the end by one of Jacks followers Simon is a quiet boy who doesnt have a whole lot to say
