Brutally honest, king of the 80's high school punk scene
20 January 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

King of the 80's high school punk scene. Where is Timothy Van Patten? According to the the site (imdb)he's done some directing but I thought he kicked ass as the gangs leader Stegman, a chilling and mesmerizes performance in my book. While Perry King gave me a good look at a teacher just trying to get through to these disturbed teens while fighting for his life at the same time. Not like Sam Jackson in "187" but still a good teacher. My personal favorite is when Roddy McDowell holds up his biology class at gunpoint after the gang kills his beloved pets. Personally I think this is an important movie.

Thanks,

Ryan
