Based on events that occurred in 1985 at R.L. Paschel High School in Fort Worth, Texas. The gang was the Legion of Doom. Actual names and locations are not used in the movie because once incarcerated, the members of the Legion of Doom were prohibited from doing books or movies about the gang. See more »

The "Brotherhood of Justice"... where'd you get that?
It must have been divine inspiration, I guess.

Santa Lucia High School has a real problem with juvenile delinquents. They're making it bad for the rest of the student body. After an inspirational talk from school principal Joe Spano, a group consisting of student government leaders and jocks decide to do something about it.
Keanu Reeves and his friends form something called The Brotherhood of Justice. They've got access to information that local law enforcement doesn't have and they make use of it accordingly. They know who all dope dealer, thieves, and bullies are and the Brotherhood deals out their own brand of justice accordingly.
Problem is that the members of this secret little fraternity start to use if for their own ends. It leads to some serious consequences for all concerned.
This made for television film was the first notice both Keanu Reeves and Kiefer Sutherland got. This was before the Bill&Ted films for Keanu and the first Young Guns for Kiefer. Both of them show a charisma that was apparent back then. No doubt wither of them would become stars.
Also Lori Loughlin of Full House and Billy Zane who was Leonard DiCaprio's nemesis in Titanic had some supporting roles.
The specter of vigilantism is always beneath the surface in society. There is certainly a great temptation to make matters in your own hand. The Brotherhood of Justice is not a great film, but not a bad one either and a bit above the average drama geared toward the teenage crowd.
