This braindead Die Hard rip-off takes place in a high school, instead of a skyscraper, featuring a clearly 25 year old lead actor playing a high school student. Rife with idiotic bad guys, annoyingly obvious traps, and cringe-inducing one liners (I prefer to just boo), this film is great to heckle from the back row with friends. Robin Thicke's dad is in it too.
very underrated indie classic movie. with Corey haim who comes through as a fearless teen. its die hard in a school and let me tell you this movie kicks ass and its tons of fun to watch I mean isn't that what a action movie is meant to be
OK so we all know of the old adage 'Die Hard on a...' well this would come under the term 'Die Hard in a school' literately. Fun to watch but never a great actor Corey Haim leads this 'Toy Soldiers' rip off as a group of terrorists take over a rather sparsely populated high school and its up to him to save the day. The whole thing is really very cheap and dumb but somehow enjoyable. The big bad villain is played by Jeff Kober and he growls nicely into the camera as he threatens the students. His accomplices are all faceless with no background development accept for one female who seems to be there simply for sex appeal and the fetish of watching a woman kill faceless policemen and security guards. She was obviously the directors fave thing as she adorns the films poster for some reason. Haim even has his own white vest in some sequences in a cute homage (?) to the film they are ripping off haha. Loving the cheapness, loving Haim's huge ridiculous earring (what is that about?) and loving the total predictability of the happy ending. Had this been made in the 80's it could of been a trashy cult.
