Code Name: Icarus
2 June 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A British school for brilliant minds, secretly brainwashes their students, and programs them to build bombs for the government. The main character Martin, is in fact one of these brilliant minds, who has no clue what is happening to him.

They showed us this film in my grade 8 English class. We watched it in 3 parts- and had to write reports on it. Although it is rather dated, I found this film interesting! From what I remember, the acting is good and the storyline is full of suspense!

If this is what gifted schools are all about, I'm glad I was just a regular dumb kid- hahaha Although- it would be kind of neat to build a bomb!
