Overview

Warner Bros.' high school drama 187 comes in a crisp 1.85:1 widescreen DVD presentation with Dolby Surround Sound. Along with the usual extras of a theatrical trailer and language options, the audio commentary provides a round-table discussion by director Kevin Reynolds, screenwriter Scott Yagemann, and actors Samuel L. Jackson and Clifton Gonzalez. While Reynolds offers technical and thematic insight into this story of violence towards teachers in a Los Angeles high school, the most informative comments come from the writer, who based the screenplay on his own teaching experiences. He points out which incidents and characters are based on actual events, offering a disturbing perspective on the current environment in some public schools. The actors alleviate the seriousness by adding their own asides, backstory, and questions; particularly amusing is an ongoing joke they have about the Helen character having a crush on the gangbanger who has threatened her. Overall, the DVD is a satisfactory presentation of an average film.

The film has lots of meanings. You need patient and a bit of literature applys. Film is very slow and has twisted end. Does the teacher win or lose. But he kept his dignaty and respect. People love him to what he was for. And the teacher won the battle for he has what he accomplished for.
