Storyline

Professional mercenary Karl Thomasson arrives in Brooklyn to attend the funeral of his brother Randall, who was murdered while trying to stop a carjacking that has been blamed on the "Brotherhood", a vicious street gang led by "Little B." Karl, who believes there is something more to it, goes undercover as Randall's replacement at Lenthrop High School in Brooklyn, where Randall was a history teacher, so Karl can investigate the Brotherhood. Karl becomes the protector of Randall's daughter Anya when their lives are threatened by whoever is behind the recent string of carjackings, and the plot behind the carjackings runs a lot deeper than the Brotherhood, and the threat is a lot closer to Karl and Anya than they dare to think.

Goofs

As Karl and Danny face the Hoods, Karl tels the Hoods to look at their chests so they can see the infra-red lights from the scopes. Infra-red scopes don't work that way (you do see a red dot but only through the scope and not on the target) but laser sights do mark their targets that way. See more »

Quotes

Karl Thomasson: [holds up a yo-yo] what do you think this is?
Dontae: It's just a simple toy man

Karl Thomasson: To you it is. But back in 1500 in the Philippines it was a weapon
[lashes out with the yo-yo and smashes the bottle Dontae is drinking from]

Just flat out bad...
25 January 1999 | by (Detroit, Michigan) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed The Substitute. Decent acting and enough acting. Not great, but decent enough. But the follow-up makes me wonder how? what? who? uh??

The film was empty, along with Treat Williams empty performance. The plot just didn't work out. The movie just didn't....WORK! Just flat out bad!
