Erik Ponti (Wilson), a handsome young man and talented swimmer, with a panache for kicking the bloody pulp out of just about anyone, is considered the purest form of Evil by his headmaster and is expelled from school. His mother (Richardson), feeling helpless as to how best to help her troubled son and tired of seeing him beat by his stepfather (Rabeus), sends him off to boarding school. Trying to do his best not to cause any grief, and with the support of his new best friend, Pierre (Lundstrom), Erik is adjusting well until be refuses to stand down to the upper classmen, thus starting a war of the wills. And for his stepfather, well, he eventually gets what he has coming. (Jack Kelley)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture can look quite nice, but details break down and the picture lacks fine textures. Colors are well balanced and appear quite natural. Unfortunately, pixelization plagues the picture, and smearing can be a problem in the darker scenes. (Suzanne Hodges)

Reason #32 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review as a way to dream. I think about the day I make it in life and how I will own only top of the line products featured in your magazine. I think about the parties and social functions at my house and how the centerpiece will be my entertainment system. Though at my current economic standing, it will take me years to be able to afford all the products I want without getting into credit debt, I still see no harm in reading about what will be mine.
