"I got this movie in hopes that it would be an actual movie, about the shooting at columbine in 1999... There are a string of School Shooting movies, most are Indie, because those are the only people with the guts to make a movie about a School Shooting.
I've seen Hostage High, Elephant, HomeRoom, Zero Day, and Carbine High. Each one showed something slightly different. I think Zero Day is the cloest we will ever get to a Block Buster movie about the shooting, which is also why the Movie will no doubtly never be released... Elephant has almost no acting in it, and just shows a normal day at school. HomeRoom is more about coping with the horror, and Hostage High is about a different shooting.
That leaves Carbine High as the only decent movie even close to the story of Columbine. It is done rather rediclous at points. It exaggrates events to unbelievable levels. They make fun of many parts of society, many sterotypes. Throughout the Movie, you watch two Boys who are picked on, who love fireworks, have an interest in Nazi Germany, and have suicidal thoughts. These are the only two characters of the movie that are even called by their names.
Everyone else is referred to by their sterotype names such as "The bible Girl", "The Jock", "The Retard"... At first I thought it was creepy, but in reality it is just South Park level of exaggration added into dramatic events, to show you how rediclous things really are...
I gave the Movie 5 Stars, because it throws political correctness out window, and shows you the truth in a simpleton way...."

"I had a friend buy this for me years ago on VHS. It was one of my most prized possessions! I thought, "FINALLY a movie making fun of Columbine! a movie showing the perspective of the shooters!!". I think it should be shown in every school. It will never happen.. but it's a nice thought.
People need to think about things from more angles than just the typical, "boo hoo, people died". There's a reason those people died. It is too often ignored. Yes, this movie will be offensive to some! Yes, this film will only be funny to those with a slightly morbid sense of humor.. but the fact still remians, somebody was bound to make a film like this sooner or later.. and I, for one, am glad they did."

"I love this movie.I owned it on VHS for many years before buying the DVD.
I think it is a truly misunderstood and underappreciated film.
For all the people who are offended, you should look deeper and listen to the filmmakers own words and understand what the film is about.
It is a social commentary and a social criticism on how the media, schools, Parents and the community at large handles the aftermath of such a shooting.I thought it was wonderfully done. There is also another message that the film puts across. A very important one.That constant abuse and ostracism can drive people to such desperation and hopelessness that they feel the only way out is to destroy themselves and others. The film never condones such an action.Just presents an understanding of it. Bill Hellfire,Joey Smack and Misty Mundae were perfect in their roles and Smack and Hellfire did a fine job in the producing and directing aspects.
Although Misty had done other things before, this film is where her career really took off.
As far as the DVD itself, the print is some darker than the VHS, but the sound is improved over the VHS version.
A few minor characters are cut out of the DVD version (The Priest, Gun rights spokeman,ect), but that doesn't disrupt or take anything away from the story at all.
And the special features are excellent.

""I admire DUCK very much because it refuses to shrink back from the event itself. In fact, it is the only cinematic response to the Littleton massacre that refuses to recoil in the face of the disaster."
...Yeah, what he said. :)
