Storyline

Billy Tepper is the leader of a group of rebellious boys at The Regis School. He has already been expelled from three prominent private schools. His best friend, Joey Trotta, is the son of the Head of the New York Mafia; Billy, all their friends and many other kids at the school have equally influential and prominent, if more law-abiding, parents. When Luis Cali's father is put in jail, he heads for the Regis School to put the son of the judge in charge of the case under hostage, only to find he has been removed. However, once he realises who the parents of the rest are, he decides the entire student body of the Regis School would be an even better bargaining chip.

Henry "Hank" Giles III: Mouthwash?
William "Billy" Tepper: Yes, mouthwash... but maybe not.
Henry "Hank" Giles III: What's the deal, Billy? Are you trying to tell me my breath stinks?
William "Billy" Tepper: I wasn't saying your breath stinks. Why do you take everything so personally? Damn, Hank.

excellent
21 July 2002 | by nickwong62See all my reviews

This is really good. Original ideas in the film and a great terrorist action film. Only second to die hard and die hard with a vengeance, this film has suspense and a good plot. I would recommend it to anyone with a taste in films like mine; Action, terrorism and gangster/mafia.
