Goofs

In the scene where Stegman and his gang go to the punk band club, the punk band Teenage Head are playing. The song that the band is playing is called "Got No Sense". Before Stegman gets on stage to stage dive, he gives a two fingered gesture to the crowd. The singer of the band onstage is next to Stegman singing the song, but his lips are not matching to the words of the song being played by the band. See more »

Quotes

An absorbing piece of exploitation.
21 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

"Death Wish" meets "The Blackboard Jungle" in this brutal, increasingly violent thriller. If I were to judge it from a strictly objective point of view, I'd have to be very negative - it's a totally exploitative piece of work. But there is something inherently absorbing about this movie, and you simply can't take your eyes off it. Its 93 minutes pass like a breeze, and for that alone it probably deserves two stars. Has pretty good acting, too.
