Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: The American critics were not particularly impressed with this, I thought it was at least average, perhaps just a trifle over, as a modern teen drama. In some ways it is a ''Breakfast Club'' for the new millenium. The kids find themselves in a situation they have no idea how to handle, and just want to go home quietly, but the wall of police outside force them into trying to behave as TV has educated them how baddies behave.
