Professional mercenary Karl Thomasson arrives in Brooklyn to attend the funeral of his brother Randall, who was murdered while trying to stop a carjacking that has been blamed on the "Brotherhood", a vicious street gang led by "Little B." Karl, who believes there is something more to it, goes undercover as Randall's replacement at Lenthrop High School in Brooklyn, where Randall was a history teacher, so Karl can investigate the Brotherhood. Karl becomes the protector of Randall's daughter Anya when their lives are threatened by whoever is behind the recent string of carjackings, and the plot behind the carjackings runs a lot deeper than the Brotherhood, and the threat is a lot closer to Karl and Anya than they dare to think.Written by

When Joey 6 meets up with Karl Tomasson in the train yard early in the film, he references being in his military unit in the Army. This also would mean that Tomasson and his brother, Randall also served with Shale, Tom Berenger's character from the original film at some point in their career since Joey 6 and Tomasson have a strong connection to one another and possibly the other members of Shale's unit featured in the original film.

When Drummond shoots Kara he uses a silenced, semi-automatic pistol. He fires three times. There is no recoil and the slide never cycles. If the slide remains stationary the spent casing can't eject, a new round can't be chambered, and the pistol can't fire more than once. See more »

Now, the first "Substitute" was reasonably fun - dumb, and schlock - but fun. If you've seen it, there's no reason to see "Substitute 2". It's more or less the same story, though more tired, mechanical and stupid. Treat Williams is miscast - he looks too "nice" to be believable as a mercenary. Easy to see why this never got a theatrical release.
