On a winter day in a southside Queens high school, events collide and six students are suddenly in an armed standoff with the NYPD. At the school, classrooms freeze, teachers come and go, resources are scant. When a popular teacher is suspended, a few students protest. Jackson, a new security guard, gets tough. In a scuffle, Jackson's wounded with his own gun and a student takes him hostage. A few kids join in, for various reasons. An ineffective policewoman tries to mediate as the police plan an assault, the kids demand improvements to the school, the media pick up the story, and Jackson turns sympathetic. But are too many forces in motion for the students to stay in control? Written by

After a high school teacher (Nelson) is fired on the spot during class, the students of this beat up run down H S take matters into their own hands after one of them (Ziggy) has an altercation with a police officer (Whitaker). Things quickly spiral out of control and the lives and futures of a half dozen students end up in the palm of one young student, Lester (Raymond) as they hold the police officer hostage in the school they have grown to despise. Not bad outing for many of the young actors and although everything plays out like a bad TV movie, the moral of the movie is sent clear and simple. It tends to be a little too melodramatic (very much like AMERICAN HISTORY X with the sappy loud music at the end.) and instead of ending it, it gets worse and worse gradually. But what teen would notice, especially seeing likeable characters such as Lester and Rivers? A good teen movie overall, but anyone older will roll their eyes.
