"Whoever it was that wrote something about it being a bad movie because the main character wasnt cute enough needs to stick to watching She's all that or other [movies] like that. The ending i do have to admitt was a cliffhanger but the plot was original and the cinemotography was amazing. How good a movie is is NOT based on wheather or not the characters contian a certain "eye candy" appeal."

"New Port South begins and carries on very strongly. It is the story of Maddux, a student at NPS High who has had enough of the curriculum and the administration, who decides to lead a student rebellion. Following the example of another former student who did similar things 2 years earlier, Maddux's nonviolent protests gain more and more explosive reactions from the school's faculty. As Maddux steadily becomes unstable, his friends begin to question his judgment and things finally come to a riveting climax. And then the ending comes and just leaves you hanging with unanswered questions that will probably keep you up wondering what the final outcome would have been like if the director had just added 5 or 10 more minutes. But as it is, I loved this movie until the very end. Not a bad movie, and it's a fun one to rent with some friends and guess about what could have happened if it had been just a little bit longer. But I can't say I would reccommend purchasing it."

"This film is more for people who are not into main stream box office hits. The film is bascially how a group of students how rebel against the school and rules, and get all of the students to join in. The use of graphics, photography, music and artwork kept me more gripped to the screen than the actual plot. I Wouldn't not recommend this film, but maybe just rent it instead of buying."
