Jean-Claude Van Damme,
A young woman is gang raped and murdered in a California college town, sparking her brother Kevin to take up arms by night with a gang of like-minded vigilantes from his fraternity, brutally punishing any miscreants they catch in a criminal act. In the meantime, Kevin debates the issue of violent crime in the U.S. with his teachers and others during the day. As Kevin and his gang head toward a final, bloody confrontation with the low-lifes who murdered his sister, other scenes show the difference between his character, now violent, and the normal people he is supposedly protecting.

The film Starts out like Animal House and is quite enjoyable as a messy if not campy 80s college romp. But as the Film progresses we see that it is a study of Power and what it leads to. The journey is far more important than the destination in this one. The film is quite existential and bleak at times, almost a defeatist noir as we see the main character trying to avenge his sister (whom he had last treated poorly), only to cause far more harm in the process. This is all mixed with trademark over the top explosions, convenient crime encounters, a slow sex scene, bad dialogue, a slew of undeveloped characters that die off and some animated sequences. A Cheesy Ride but worth checking out for the novelty alone. A True genre Bender.
