Movie Reviews

Not Bad/ Not Perfect Either!
LadyLestat | Birmingham, Alabama United States | 08/05/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Michelle Pfeiffer plays LouAnne Johnson an ex-Marine teaching a inner-city school. I thought the movie had a good message but, I saw a lot of "Lean on Me" elements, and that's what didn't make it very original in my opinion. I thought that Michelle did a wonderful job, and it's a very inspirational movie. I guess that I just expected more than that. I can say that it is based on actual events that happened so, that's a plus."
Good movie

"This movie was real good. But it could have gone without the swearing even thought then it wouldn't seem very gangster like. But this movie shows what the kids go through in that kind of a life. It is so sad what happens to Emilio. He was actually starting to change but then the stupid principal wouldn't talk to him. That part just made my mouth hang open when he said he sent him away for not knocking. But I'm not going to tell you the whole story. I think everyone should see it at least once. You don't have to buy it, just rent it or something. It shows you how really gangster life is not really as cool as some people think it to be. But this movie was good enough for me to buy"
An excellent real life movie you can't miss

"After I watched Dangerous Minds for the first time I couldn't stop watching it. It was such a good movie. It was sad but that was part of what made it so good. Sometimes in order to enjoy a movie there has to be sad parts or it doesn't seem realistic.My favortie character in the movie was Callie Roberts. She was such a smart, strong person. I felt sorry for her having to be in a class like that.If you haven't seen Dangerous Minds, you have to rent it. You won't regret it."
An upfront and personal review of "Dangerous Minds"

"The movie was filmed at my school where I was the lead science teacher. The classroom they used was mine which made the theme all that more realistic. For most children in problem areas is is a miracle just to get to school alive or undaunted and "Dangerous Minds" extracts this exact fear. I thouroughly enjoyed watching the movie being filmed but more so when it was brought to the screen."
