Corey blimey - this isn't very good.....
20 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

Demolition University, a movie with very little demolition and five minutes of university. But we get plenty of Corey Haim.

The story is relatively straightforward. An American football player (Corey Haim) fails to catch a ball. Understandably, his angry team mates are enraged and decide to beat him up. However, they are prevented from doing so because they have to go and take a shower. After the lads have freshened up they chase Corey onto a yellow bus where he, the love-interest-girl and chief jock-baddie go on a field trip to a power plant. Unbeknownst to Corey and the gang, this power plant has been taken over by a renegade special forces soldier and a group of over-acting Arab terrorists. This ultimately leads to a game of cat and mouse between the terrorists, police and Corey Haim. At the centre of the chaos is a small glass jar of toxic liquid.

This is not a great film, in fact it could be argued that this is a rubbish film. If you are going to have any hope of enjoying this you will need to look out for the little details. For example, there is one terrorist in a checked shirt who I shall refer to as Shouting Man. Shouting Man appears to be unable to pull the trigger of his assault rifle without shouting very very loudly. Watch him. It's hysterical. He's an idiot.

Robert Forster turns up and sleepwalks through his performance. I guess he needed money for a new shed. Corey Haim tries his best but unfortunately he is Corey Haim. And he is clearly lost without Feldman. Although the relationship between Haim and the bad-jock reminded me of the chemistry between Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer in Top Gun. I was massively disappointed that they didn't use the line 'you can be my quarterback'.

Strictly for die-hard Haimsters.
