Plot Summary

A vicious high school student is dead. A gang hit? An act of sudden rage? Or did a once-idealistic teacher finally snap? The issues and the tension hit home when Samuel L. Jackson stars in a gritty urban-school thriller that's "gripping, high-octane entertainment" (Newhouse News Service).

Customer Reviews


What a pleasure to watch a movie like this! It has everything. A great story, great acting, great direction, great cinematography, great music. It's the kind of movie that makes me wade through the volumes of pedestrian flicks to find the occasional treasure. What's disturbing is it's source is reality. It's message hit home. And a home run! Again... wow!


A griping commentary on the problem state of much of the youth of the world and the obstacles faced by teachers. Superb writing and mesmerizing acting. A great contribution in the tradition of "Blackboard Jungle" & "To Sir With Love". Sit back and prepare to be entertained, shocked and moved!
