On this month’s episode, we’re taking a look back at the 2003 Nu Image production, Detention! In this oddball action thriller, Dolph Lundgren takes on relatively new territory… high school! Lundgren plays Sam Decker, a former soldier, now high school teacher who leads a group of rebellious misfit students against a ruthless band of mercenaries that have entered the school after hours! Joining me to discuss this one is my buddy and ultra-cinefile, Nathan Burt! What exactly are the villains’ motives for using the school as the base for their dastardly deeds? Is this group of teenage misfits as endearing as John Hughes‘ Breakfast Club crew? And just how effective is Lundgren as a high school teacher? Join Nathan and I as we stay after school and chat the absurdity that is Detention!
