Hamilton High is no place for a teacher who cares. Teacher Sam Decker doesn't care anymore. He's quitting. Sam marks his last day in the battleground of public education by getting saddled with the detention class after hours, playing warden to a pack of rebellious students, the worst troublemakers in school. But Hamilton High is about to become an all too real battleground when a well-organized group of killers armed with automatic weapons and explosives invade the supposedly deserted school after hours to use it as an operating base for meticulously planned armored car robbery. Led by the brilliant and sadistic Chester Lamb, the invaders are surprised to discover Sam and the kids from the detention room are still inside the school. The hunt is on as the killers ruthlessly stalk the teacher and students through the school's halls and classrooms, while Lamb tracks them on the surveillance cameras, turning the school's security system against his prey. Sam and the kids band together ...Written by
The worst movie I've ever seen since "Atomic Train!!!"
When I saw Dolph Lundgren in "Masters of the Universe" I figured that was bad acting in itself. I was wrong..very wrong! The movie "Detention" was the worst I've ever seen since "Atomic Train"! Why, you ask? It has more clichés than an air disaster film on Lifetime, Okay! And why would terrorists attack a high school to go after this one guy? Please! It would've made a hell of a lot more sense to have ex-convicts and gang bangers hunt him down! See what happens when you let morons direct your movies.
Spoilers Ahead!!! The action sequences are beyond the realm of sub-par...even by $3.99 straight-to-video, "MSTK 3000" standards. What I really don't get when one of the students rams a car down the hallway through a wall of lockers. Why? What f@#king possible purpose does that serve...does it kill one of the bad guys? No! Does it stop the bomb that is in the Boiler room? No! It seems that he did it just for the hell of it! And speaking of bombs, the rest of the students are in the basement with the bomb trying to disarm it when all they had to do was press a button! A god damn button on the remote? ARRGGGGHHHH! Who would put a disarming button a remote? I never saw that in any suspense action movie...ever! I mean this puts Van Damme movies to shame and even they had more to offer than this. Don't get me stared on the characters, oh please!!!!
Talk about stereotypes! The terrorist or wannabe terrorists are stereotypical rejects from a "Hot Topic" ad! Yeah, all bad guys must be young crazy bastards from hell complete with spiky, blue, or pink hair while wearing some all black punk-rock get-up not-to-mention with black nail polish! The Columbine Killer shtick isn't working all right! So everyone who dresses like this is bad news and up to no good right, Mr. Director?
Not only are the terrorists clichéd stereotypes but the hero and is sidekicks as well. You got the chiseled blonde "Superman/Rambo/Schwartzenegger-type main character armed to boot. Then, you have the "usual" detention fodder: The two black guys, one in athletic wear, a teen mother-to-be(oh a real felon, here), and a rebel. The only character that isn't a "usual suspect" but a token a kid in a wheelchair. Then, you have the helpless beautiful blonde white girls one that was locked in a police car's trunk and the wife of our hero, typical damsels in distress. What was this sh*t-for-brains director on during the making of this movie? 10.5 made more sense than this insult to celluloid! Hints to the director: "Find a new career!"
