Movie Info

Mark L. Lester's follow-up film to his Class of 1984 is a rancidly violent peek at a near-future high school world of terror -- The Jetsons meet The Terminator. In Lester's world, total anarchy rules (at least in Seattle). Classrooms are sinkholes of violence, and around the kill-zone high schools "Free Fire Zones" are set up that look like re-creations of Dachau. Rival youth gangs roam these areas with enough artillery for a second Vietnam War. The gangs' insane violence is exacerbated by a

Class of 1999 gets a D for dumb, dull and derivative.

Audience Reviews for Class of 1999

Sequel to the first but with a rather ambitious new plot revolving around 'Terminator' style robot teachers that are brought in to control the students.

Set in the distant future of 99 (at the time) this film looks a lot like 'Mad Max' mixed with elements from 'Robocop'. You can see where Lester got his inspirations from but in all honesty the film is so gloriously over the top and cheesy its just brilliant. Probably even more dated than the first film due to the quite horrendous costumes on display, they really are quite fantastically lame and impractical you just gotta smile. Add to this lots of armoured cars, a high school that looks like a large seedy red light district with masked stormtroopers patrolling around and another king of trashy B-movies, Malcolm McDowell as the head.

The cast is again pretty good with some cult names in there such as Pam Grier, Joshua John Miller of 'Near Dark' fame, Stacy Keach with some nice futuristic contacts and white hair and main player Bradley Gregg who curiously looks like a hybrid of Stephen Dorff and Corey Feldman fused together...the perfect guy for a trashy 80's flick then.

Yes this isn't as good as the first as this film dumps the serious thriller aspect and goes way over board into the realms of silly sci-fi with extreme gun play between warring school gang factions and the robotic death machines that are the teachers but its still damn good fun. Lots of cheesy dialog and hammy performances with an ending that definitely borrows from a certain James Cameron sci-fi adventure. Anarchy is overblown wearing ridiculous earrings, long head scarfs and large shiny belts, almost a homage to the early 80's.

It's a hell of the futuristic high school in this violent exploitation film. John P. Ryan and Pam Grier are loads of fun as the androids, latter mocking her image when not only her breasts but inner works are revealed for the final reel through hokey make-up effects.

Retarded, I hated Class of 1999, it may be a fine idea to incorporate terminator like robots, but in a school setting? Are you kidding me? The film did not make much sense at all, probably due to the low budget, it is just way too flimsy and ridiculous. Do not watch it if you hate teenage delinquents.
