Review

A fun and surprisingly ingenious action yarn set in a prep school full of unruly sons of wealthy parents who must step up when the school is attacked by Colombian terrorists. Unrealism mixed in with plenty of American patriotism both in the action and the soundtrack department make this just the type of 1990s action you would expect. A young Sean Astin is charismatic in the lead.
