simply B.A.D.
20 December 1998 | by ram-11See all my reviews

Don't think this is a movie about "punks", not even a violent movie, this is totally "kid's stuff", but for not very bright kids. The movie is about a bunch of kids (as usual, one is a nerd, one is a fat boy, one is a thief, one is the leader, and the other, a girl, so we have "all kinds") who join to prevent the death of the father of the leader, a scientist developing a "muscular enhancer", so the kids turn out to be : a) smart enough to understand a biological-scientifical experiment and its consequences, b) with the skills to break in to a lab with the highest-technology security, c) with the knowledge and skills to use computers as real hackers, among a lot of other things.

So, the result is a boring movie, with bad kid actors, no angel, no fun, nothing else to say. Avoid it, even if you want a child's movie, or if you thought this would be sort of "KIDS" or anything a bit heavier, cause of the title PUNKS (as I thought).
