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.

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

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.

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

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