The title suggests an Orwellian nightmare, but this extremely efficient and gleefully alarmist exploitation hit owes less to Big Brother than to 'Blackboard Jungle.'

prophetic with his ultra-violent cautionary tale of the youth of that day

Director-coscripter Mark Lester films this for maximum cathartic impact, tapping into viewers' thirst for justice and revenge against these disreputable brats as thoroughly as the filmmakers behind such eye-for-an-eye yarns as Death Wish and The Crow.

Cheesy, campy, corny, and violent. In other words, a rather fun little B-movie.

Alice Cooper sang the title song, which never hurts, but this movie is beyond saving.
