Decent juvie pic
10 November 2000 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

This is one of the better entries in the Showtime Rebel Highway series of AIP remakes. Its storyline doesn't rise above the usual simplistic TV movie of the week cliches, but it is intelligently acted by Mark Dacascos and Natasha Gregson Wagner. An excellent soundtrack, partly recorded by Los Lobos, adds character and grit.
