Audience Reviews for Detention

A great action flick. It's Die Hard meets The Substitute. A cool, riveting and wickedly entertaining action-thriller. Dolph Lundgren is at his best.

Boring action alike Toy Soliders and Demoltion High. (Has no English substitles - damn on Ninth Dimension Home Entertainment)
