Mark L. Lester said the film was inspired by several true stories of school violence he had read about in papers. In particular was a story of a teacher who brought a gun to class to control his students - the scene ended up in the film. See more »

"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.
