What an excellent film.
14 March 2007 | by Joe_GonzalesSee all my reviews

What a fantastic movie, it's hard to believe that this was the first feature ever directed by Brian Ging. I hope to see more work out of him soon. I truly hope that more films like this are taken seriously by Hollywood, because this film deals with todays issues. It's not all sugar and spice and everything nice in todays schools. This film shows the true gritty nature of America's youth and their ability to be cruel and unmerciless to those that they feel are beneath them. This film should send up red flags and numerous messages to not only current students but to also parents, administrators and the general public and it should hopefully spur drastic changes in the current system. Mr. Ging's message in this film is loud and clear, now it's up to the rest of the world to decide whether or not they're going to listen and pay it any mind. I hope that the world gets the same chance that I did to view this film, so that they too become educated to what is going on today in our schools.
