Trivia

The central idea for the film came from an article in the L.A. Times. In addition, the writers were influenced by a friend, who related stories about how students from a Chicago school district brought guns to school, not to use them inside, but because of the dangerous neighborhoods they live in or walk through every day.

A political diatribe
8 February 2014 | by (Birmingham, Alabama) – See all my reviews

Whenever Hollywood decides to "teach America what it should think" the result is a lousy movie. And this waste of time is really a lousy movie. Why sacrifice an hour and a half of your life being lectured to by a film, when you could just read a Handgun Control, Inc. leaflet and get just as much misinformation? But at least you can see this one coming a mile away. Sometimes Hollywood's elite moralizers sneak the message in without letting on that it's a "message movie." I really hate it when that happens. "The Adjustment Bureau" (2011), I think it was, ended with an endless lecture about personal choice and personal responsibility, taking a merely goofy movie right down the drain.

I can't recommend this one AT ALL. I'd give it a "0" but IMDb will only let me rate it a 1.
