I seldom review movies, so little that I forgot my profile log in info, but I had to create a new account so I could say something about this terrible movie.
First, we will get past the poor calibre of acting. It is a 'B' movie, so we expect poor acting. But............. OK, something really jumped out at me and it grew from there.......
During the hostage scene, the police lieutenant in charge asked where swat was, he was told 45 minutes out. The highest priority goes to any school hostage situation. If there truly is no swat available, state troopers, national guard, the FBI and the military are called in to action. --- Then, some random guy walks up to the police lieutenant (The heroines boyfriend, unknown to the cop). Random guy says "I was a marine", so the cop bows down to him and lets random guy take over. Asks if he is armed and random guy shows a sidearm. Then cop lets random guy with a gun take over and go in the school alone. ------ WHAT??????? Some random guy walks up with a handgun and claims to be a former marine and the cops let him take over, and enter the school alone?? WHAT?????
This movie was quite poor leading up to this, then it turned into this complete mess. Did the writer research anything about law enforcement? Are we, the public, perceived by the writer and director to be so gullible?
In my 48 years on this earth, I have watched hundreds, possibly thousands, of movies. This is a true contender for one of the worst I have ever seen.
