Storyline

A high school bus on its way to a retreat blows a tire and stops at the nearest ranch for help. The driver, five troubled students, and their ridiculous gym- teacher chaperone find, instead, criminals who will stop at nothing to make sure their drug operations aren't discovered. The students and teacher are easy prey for these animals, but standing in the way of certain death is a force more determined and more skilled than any of them ever expected: The Bus Driver.

Not great, but better than I expected
2 July 2017 | by a_chinnSee all my reviews

Scrappy, super low budget action film about a bus full of high school juvenile delinquent types on a field trip. When their bus breaks down in the middle of nowhere, they stop off at the closest farm, which ends up being a drug operation. The rest of the movie is a siege film of sorts, with the kids, their idiot gym teacher, and the heroic titular bus driver (you know, like the cook in "Under Siege") saving everyone from the drug dealers try to kill everyone in order to protect their operation. The main reason I watched this film was that Robert Forster was in it, but I again fell for the B-picture bait-and-switch and Forster was hardly in the film. Still, for a super low budget picture, director Brian Herzlinger brought a level of energy that reminded me of "El Mariachi," though this film is certainly no "El Mariachi." Still, it's better than most of it's micro budget ilk.
