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.

The plot line is not only ridiculous and retarded, but the villians are the worst group of criminals ever written. There are some parts that are very unrealistic. The only decent actors are the kids and the teacher.

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