This was surprisingly very good. If you like Charly or the first Lawnmower Man then you've got to check this out. Soundtrack was a plus. The only things keeping this from being a 5 star was the method of power acquisition. C'mon, power crystals? The fact that each character acquired powers based on their personalities helped the plot lines. Some of the acting was a little weak but not overly bad to detract from the story. Dialogue could have also used a little work but overall the story was great. Remember kids: With great power comes great responsibility and power can corrupt but it was nice seeing some justice dished out like in Revenge of the Nerds.
I know this movie is pretty bad, but I still enjoy it. It's like a flip side of "The Faculty" meets some B-movie about a group of super-heroes who were pulled straight from the high school in "Jawbreaker". The first 20 minutes will either pull you in or make you shut it off. Trust your instincts either way.
So beyond crappy and silly that it's amazing. What if the gothy outcasts from school got superpwoers? They go crazy wreaking havoc and revenge, and then they show off exactly how amplified their emo powers are.
