While some may compare this to Brick, the 2005 similarly-set HighSchool film noir, Assassination is much more comparable to Chinatown,which is clearly it&#x27;s biggest influence. In fact, you&#x27;ll see lineslifted right out of the film. But is it good? Yes, actually, it&#x27;s quitegood. Clearly, the filmmakers here were not taking this quite asseriously as either Brick or Chinatown, and it pays off with a fun,funny, sometime campy, film noir with a good mystery and some wellacted roles.<br><br>The writing presents a stylish script with dialogue that is often funnyand over the top. Bruce Willis is especially mentionable as aveteran-turned-principle who pines over his time spent in the militarytaking out bad guys and his hate for chewing gum. He&#x27;s perfectly overthe top. Reece Thompson also does a great job as the lead character,playing up the gumshoe role with relish. It&#x27;s fun to see him be him andfollow him on his journey.<br><br>One line in the film goes something like &#x22;high school is simple...yetit&#x27;s not.&#x22; The film does a particularly good job of showing thisthroughout in scenes that inspire laughs. We have a suspension hallthat acts like a prison, and is presented in such a way as to inspirethis comparison. We have an assassination attempt that...well, I won&#x27;tspoil it. But suffice to say, this scene in particular demonstratesexactly what I am talking about. It&#x27;s a good revelation of how highschool can be: in the end it seems simple, but while in, high schoolcan be anything but.<br><br>The film is very entertaining and should be fun for anyone looking fora good noir. It&#x27;s not serious like it&#x27;s inspirations, but it doescontain a good mystery, some good acting stints, and some fun dialogue.I recommend it for anyone looking for something slightly different towatch on a Saturday night.

ASSASSINATION OF A HIGH SCHOOL PRESIDENT is a big step above most ofthe teen movies that focus on potty mouth dialogue and absurdsituations just to get laughs. Writers Tim Calpin and Kevin Jakubowskihave come up with a script that is sometimes smart but ultimately fullof holes in deciding where it wants to take the original premise ofthis high school movie. Director Brett Simon seems to sort of let themovie flow as it develops, preventing a tight telling of a story withpotential. <br><br>Bobby Funke (Reece Thompson, a promising new talent) is a nerdynewspaper reporter who is never able to finish a story. Student BodyPresident/basketball star/ladies&#x27; man Paul Moore (Patrick Taylor) seemsto have everything Bobby wants, including the attention of the school&#x27;smost beautiful girl Francesca (Mischa Barton). As fortune would have ita crime happens - the SATs are stolen from the office of PrincipalKirkpatrick (Bruce Willis playing Bruce Willis) and Booby is on theinvestigation and story, a story that points to Paul as theperpetrator. Bobby&#x27;s nerdiness is transformed by his attention and bythe affections of Francesca, and soon the school collapses under thecloud of the crime. It is how the &#x27;crime&#x27; is inspected and resolvedthat ends the film. For Bobby Funke it is a matter of &#x27;What priceglory&#x27;. <br><br>The cast is fresh and it is a pleasure to see some new faces withpromise. Whether it is the director&#x27;s or the sound mixer&#x27;s fault, muchof the dialogue is swallowed by the soundtrack, a problem thankfullysolved by turning on the subtitles. This is a movie with promise fromall involved and it will be interesting to see if it has an impact onteen flick quality. <br><br>Grady Harp

I had never heard of this movie and found it laying around in one of myfriends large DVD collections. After reading the back I thought I wouldhate it. I don&#x27;t know why I torture myself watching movies that I thinkare going to make me cry to the gods to stop people from making thesehorrible artsy films, but I do. It seemed like a low budget stylizedsort of art film that managed to pull in some mid level stars and inaging one in Bruce Willis. Not my kind of film. I was wrong!(apparentlyignoring my gut turns out to be a good idea, but usually it&#x27;s stilltorture)<br><br>This was really a fun quirky, little movie that I actually enjoyed. Thestory is fairly sophomoric. A high school cheating scandal that thestudent newspaper, and the grizzled old war veteran Principal (BruceWillis) are trying to get to the bottom of.<br><br>The acting in this one is admittedly over the top, but that is thestrength of this movie. It is suppose to be over the top which providesthe humor throughout. Mischa Barton plays the pretty girl, so that wasno stretch, Bruce Willis&#x27;s tough guy image works wonderfully for hischaracter as well.<br><br>I won&#x27;t get into the whole plot/ storyline as anyone can read it above,but it was a pleasantly surprising, humorous story that I woulddefinitely recommend. I am usually not even into this kind of movie butI really enjoyed it. It was much better than sitting through anotherstupid Harry Potter movie that&#x27;s for sure.<br><br>So if you find yourself bored with nothing to watch, pop this funlittle gem in the DVD player. Its a fun one that I think is definitelyunderrated and worth a view.<br><br>Like my reviews? Hate em? Questions? Comments? Have a DVD that you wantreviewed? SHoot me an e-mail at: [email protected]
