Trivia

This is an official sequel to Class of 1984 (1982) which was confirmed by Director Mark L. Lester but instead of the punks lead by Timothy Van Patten going after the teacher played by Perry King in that film, it is the gangs (Blackhearts and Razorheadz) that join forces to go after the android teachers.

Alternate Versions

The 1990 UK Vestron video was cut by 15 secs by the BBFC to edit the head-drilling scene, neck breaks during the yard fight, and shots of a window being opened with a flick-knife. The cuts were fully waived for the 2001 Columbia release. See more »

Its not that bad!!
14 March 2002 | by trevorhartSee all my reviews

If you've grown up with trashy no brainer films like this one and Lesters even poorer effort Commando, you'll love this. Its cheesy, over the top and light hearted enough to make for a great bored night in with illegal substances. The acting is hammy, the direction poor, but what saves this film is the exact things that make is a catastrophy. I mean, don't be expecting "Its a Wonderful Life" or "The Green Mile" when you watch this. Just expect a nice straight forward action flick about psychotic robot teachers. Everything about this film is great, its intense, dark and fun. Its not surprising to see people here have ripped it apart, but with a name like Class of 1999, what did you expect??

Summary: watch it for a giggle, its really not that bad.
