Die Klasse von 1999: Directed by Mark L. Lester. With Bradley Gregg, Traci Lind, Malcolm McDowell, Stacy Keach. Three ex-military robots are reprogrammed as teachers and secretly placed in a school where most students are part of organized gangs. They begin to respond violently to unruly students, and their military training starts to take over.
“You donu0026#39;t get any more hammy than this. Amongst all the trash of straight to video releases, you ocassionaly find a concept like this. A guy walks out of prison, and heads back to school to find that cyborg teachers are taking the code of the classroom a little to far. Schools in many American districts are regarded as u0026quot;Free-fire zonesu0026quot; and the police wonu0026#39;t even intervene in the deadly gang warfare that ensues whenever school is not on. No one ever asks u0026quot;Why do these kids even bother going to schoolu0026quot;, but at this point, who cares? This is a gritty view of the future, with the kind of ironic humour that has made Verhoeven millions, if he had directed this it would have been the next Robocop. The cast shine with the likes of Malcolm MacDowell, Pam Grier and Stacey Keach and in the leading role is charasmatic Corey Feldman-clone, Bradley Gregg. Everyone is having fun with this movie and it is this attitude that makes it so watchable. A pumping rock soundtrack including Nine Inch Nails debut single pads this out even further. Great lines ooze from the script; Iu0026#39;ll leave you with one of my favourites: u0026quot;Iu0026#39;m going to go waste some teachers. Whou0026#39;s with me!u0026quot;”
