We're not those kind of guys!
What kind of guys? Guys that decide to stop taking abuse. Guys that take control of their own lives? What kind of guys are we, Barry? Me?

What's our legacy? We saw, we came, we got p*ssed on weekly?
I do not know of any other director that has generated so much hatred. There are petitions on the net calling for Uwe Boll to never direct again. Is he really that bad? I am viewing this film, recommended as a good example of his work, with that in mind.
The film did an excellent job of showing the motivation behind the actions of the boys. The rape of the disabled girl was no different than the physical and psychological abuse of the two boys by the jocks. It was a violation of privacy and of their bodies.
But, it wasn't just the two boys or the girl who was raped, there was also other plots going on involving teen pregnancy, pressure to have sex, and unfair teachers. Would there be more than two people to explode on the last day? The end result was very predictable and a cautionary tale of what is allowed by school officials and the result of overpopulated schools.
Bottom line: this was an interesting and engaging movie and Uwe Boll did a very good job of telling the story.
