What pleasures do you have in your life? Has high school taught you anything except how much this world blows? That expression's true, life does suck and then you do die. It's what you do before than that matters, what mark you left, and since I could give a fuck whether or not I live or die... that's the only thing that I care about.

Don't let the fact that Uwe Boll scare you away from watching this
Uwe Boll isn't exactly a name I praise very highly, actually his movies 'House of the dead' and 'Alone In The Dark' are 2 of the worst movies I've seen.
He does get it right occasionally though, with for instance 'Rampage' and 'Assault On WallStreet' oddly enough both those have a similar theme of mass-shootings as this one, perhaps that's a subjectmatter that Uwe simply connects with the most and thereby where he shines the most in doing.
I have no idea why this is so low rated, I think it could have to do with 2 things:
1. Although it's inspired by Columbine a lot of things have been changed around and perhaps people thought that that was wrong or...
2. The shooters are portrayed as humans, not just psychos going on a rampage and some of the victims are indeed seen as "asking for it". And that might have rubbed some Americans the wrong way, who'd want nothing more than to believe that kids who commit this acts are born monsters.
It's not a flawless movie tho, as it is a ensemble-dramathriller some characters aren't as interesting as others but Brendan Fletcher is amazing as the lead-bully they really couldn't have found anyone better for the job.
Most of the cast does a very good job tho but he and Kett Turton stands out the most and are the main focus of the movie.
It's probably Uwe Boll's greatest movie.
