Storyline

Professional mercenary Karl Thomasson, his friend Macy, and an albanian girl are being held in a brutal Kosovo prison where Macy is severely beaten. Just before he dies, Macy gives Karl a medal to give to Macy's daughter Nicole Stewart, who is a professor of english at Eastern Atlantic University on Long Island in New York. Karl and the Albanian girl then escape, and Karl kills their two captors. Three months later, Karl shows up at the university and visits Nicole, who is reluctant to accept Macy's medal because due to his military obligations, Macy was out of Nicole's life more than he was in it. Soon after Karl visits Nicole, she is brutally beaten up. When Karl hears of this, he has his friends Ed Lincoln and Rahmel help him take over as Nicole's substitute under a false name, then Karl brings another mercenary friend named Andy in on the investigation of the beating so Andy can work with Karl, Ed, and Rahmel. Karl believes it was a member of the football team who did it then he ... Written by Todd Baldridge <sandib@mis.net>

Basically the same thing as the last movie...
28 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After The Substitute 2, the films started to take a repetitive path. Person gets beat, mercenary comes to rescue, becomes good teacher, beats on some bad kids...ugh. Luckily, the Substitute 3 takes that same old formula and makes it good. Thommason is sent on another mission. After an old war buddy dies, he must bring a medal to his college professor daughter so she could remember him. But while Thommason is visiting with her, she gets beat by angry jock football players. Another mission is made for the mercenary. When he gets close to the attackers, he also covers a football team steroids scandal. Now, the formula starts all over again... Substitute goes to class. Class mocks him. Substitute shows class what he's made of. Substitute kicks butt. The action scenes in this one are a little bit better than the last, with realistic effects and enemies that actually do something instead of stand there. The B-movie shows itself in this one, with lines that are often unfitting and such. Still, it was fun. Can't wait to see four.
