"First Class" (by bcarsonmail)
A gripping movie, with quite a few twists and turns that I didn't expect. In a couple of scenes I was so involved that I was on my feet at home alone screaming at the television. Think of all the movies you have ever seen where there is a psycho doing the bad deed... well all of those psychos went to school...somewhere...sometime. A terrific low budget intelligent movie. All the characters are totally believeable. Acting is on point, with the main protagonists playing their roles at just the right level. Excellent script, flawless direction and three-dimensional acting. You know that <more>
The character of Lucas Ward had me invested. In face, he resonated with me. He knows what he deserves and doesn't take disrespect from anyone. I grinned with satisfaction when he said to the other student "Maybe I should stab my pen through your windpipe and staple your tongue to the roof of your mouth." Perfection. I give 9 stars to the writing, 10 stars to Dylan Sprouse, and 10 stars to the astounding Lucas Ward.
If you like Nightcrawler... (by psychcowboy)
I guess I am a fan of movies that start somewhat innocent or only slightly sinister and then progress as the full nature of the antagonist's narcissistic psychopathy escalates. Nightcrawler -- Gyllenhall, Mr. Brooks -- Costner held my attention the entire time. With no-name actors and no real budget the director here does a great job approaching those other two films. I also really like when you are trying to analyze the full impact of one scene, and the director starts the audio rolling on the next scene before the video starts. I also like it when no one believes the protagonist and <more>
then there is some really inventive plot twist that turns the tables and gets the authorities on the side of the protagonist. Anyway, looking for more from this director, and the kid actor. Predicting big things.
Give him an A or you will be dismissed (by AnthonyMeg)
Teachers will find this movie disconcerting. This film is an exemplary manifestation of the psychopathic personality performed by actor Dylan. The character resonates with a lot of people nowadays, comes from the obsession with grades and fake superiority. It was a remarkable film and fairly striking. I totally disagree with people saying this is a predictable film because I didn't realize what kind of a sociopathic film was this until the end, plus it has a smart foreshadowing that you cannot tell what's going to happen, so, ignore the negative reviews. What I like about these movies <more>
is that they focus on specific characters, and the story is clear and thrilling that it makes you feel satisfied because the story was easily understood and not hard to follow up, in addition to that you wish that the runtime of the film lasts longer.This is a scenario where a sociopath loses the battle at the end, unlike nightcrawler where the protagonist wins; most of the critics who are claiming that the movie could've been better they might be asking for more daftness and suspenseful scenes, or they merely detested the teacher because he was seriously boring, but I believe they are just unaware of these two types of the sociopath category, either happy or sad ending for the psychopath. However, I partially agree with them not about the story ass a whole because I do like the story, but, rather, the details, I grant them that.
This movie was a surprise to me, it freaked me out and I didn't expect a lot of death. Dylan was amazing in it and really convinced me that he was crazy. But I definitely found it so cool how close it was to a school shooting in 1853, in Louisville, Kentucky. A student by the name of Matthew Ward came to school with a pistol and shot his schoolmaster Mr.Butler as revenge for what Ward thought was too harsh punishment on his brother a day before. I LOVE THAT, and no one is talking about it. Am I right or just crazy??
Better than Expected (by gabicooper-47100)
This movies description was very vague, so I was hesitant to watch it as it seemed like it would be another cliché movie. To a certain extent, it was, it was predictable at some moments. Ultimately, the acting, especially by Dylan Sprouse, was fantastic. He played a believable deranged character, something very different from what he had done in the past and has now made a great return to acting. The movie was overall quite entertaining and highly interesting as a thriller. I encourage people to check it out.
A good comeback for Dylan Sprouse (by gaspardlove)
This movie deserves to be watched at least once, Dylan Sprouse's acting is on point, he depicts very well the mannerism of a person affected by psychopathy, his gestures, his facial expressions... they all play a key point in this movie where you could imagine his past, his difficult family and read through the lines and some specific scenes\quotes what could have been the motive of his actual behavior.Lucas Ward offers some spooky moments while being manipulative towards hid dad and Becca at the point I seriously questioned myself what brought him to be the person he is today.Even if <more>
the plot is used and overused, I really suggest watching the movie: a good comeback for Dylan Sprouse in the acting world!
