A compelling, sobering drama about a well-intentioned high-school teacher driven over the edge by criminal student predators. Jackson gives a commanding, very empathetic performance.

| Original Score: 8/10

Excellent drama about what tough schools are really like. Doesn't glamorize students or teachers. Powerful.

Awful urban angst piece. One of Jackson's worst roles.

What makes the film work, perhaps better than it has any right to be, is Jackson.

If you're looking for another Stand and Deliver, watch something else.

The film asks all the right questions, but with its Billy Jack approach it rings false even when making some sense.

As a social-problem picture, 187 is a great music-video.

Samuel L. Jackson gets a B+ for his solid, towering performance but the film itself should've been held back.
