Could have been a good story except for the incredulously stupid ending that left me not only disappointed but angry. The 'moral' of the story is that it is o.k. to be deceitful, to assault, verbally & physically, to hold hostage, to defame and to blackmail someone because you believe (rightly or wrongly) that you deserve an 'A' on a class project.
Excuse me, but to mature, rational people, aren't these things normally considered criminal?
The whole thing comes off as some sort of vendetta against a former teacher written by some inept student looking for someone on whom to blame their shortcomings. Childish at best.
Watch only if you believe you got 'D's in school because your teachers were out to get you personally. Then see a good shrink.
