Well-crafted, of high interest, with plenty to analyse, it is the perfect film for those hard to interest students, girls as well as boys, with plenty for the more able as well.

 

An action movie with substance – not to be confused with its pretty mindless and far-fetched sequels.

 

 

It has virtually no bad language and no sex scenes; some violence, of course, but it is realistic and has a moral dimension not often seen in action films.  At 107 minutes actual running time, it will be very manageable in the classroom.
