A hidden gem.
5 July 2004 | by (Hell) – See all my reviews

This film has it all. Great action scenes, Fantastic dialogue, Nazi subtext.The sound track is something to behold. And the stories not bad either. The film was buried in the States but like Donnie Darko it was reborn on release in the UK.

It's the story of a High school Football team that under the influence of an unnamed organisation, decides to clean up the school of drug dealers, punks and pushers. To do this Star player Jack "Boot" Butkowski runs for class president. But they go too far and students and teachers alike begin to feel the hunted by the "Wolfpack". Only one man is brave enough to take a stand disillusioned Tight end Sam Adams. He is reaching for the stars but is being dragged in to the gutter by the Wolfpack.

Adams goes head to head with the Jack "Boot" Butkowski,star Quarterback and leader of the Wolfpack, in a blockbuster finale.

if you get the chance to see this film take it. It can usually be found in the darkest corner of your local budget video store, or petrol station counter. I believe the original copy that started it all came from WH Smith in swindon.
