Bang Bang You're Dead [DVD] [2002]

  • SKU: 5816094
  • Release Date: 01/27/2004
  • Rating: NR
Inspired by a play that has been presented numerous times to middle- and high-school students throughout the United States, Bang, Bang, You're Dead ponders the possible reasons that outwardly "normal" teenagers periodically resort to Columbine-style violence. The focus here is on Trevor Adams (Ben Foster), an intelligent, but hypersensitive, high schooler whose troubled past has designated him "at risk." Feeling persecuted by those stronger and more popular than himself, Trevor has already run afoul of classmates and teachers alike by making death threats against the school football team. Now he has aligned himself with a group of fellow "outsiders" who call themselves the Trogs. Indulging in pranks that run the gamut from merely irritating to potentially dangerous, Trevor and the Trogs plan an all-out deadly assault against their so-called enemies. Although the script points out that peer pressure and bullying has gone beyond the point of harmlessness in today's society, it is careful not to blame any one person or group for what ultimately happens to Trevor. Even Trevor himself is shown to be comprised of equal parts villain and victim. First screened at the Seattle International Film Festival, Bang, Bang, You're Dead formally premiered October 13, 2002, on Showtime.

    Bang, Bang, You're Dead
    Inspired by a play that has been presented dozens of times to middle- and high-school students throughout the United States, Bang, Bang, You're Dead ponders the possible reasons that outwardly "normal" teenagers periodically resort to Columbine-style violence.

Now he has aligned himself with a group of fellow "outsiders" who call themselves the Trogs.

      Bang Bang Your Dead is informative to those who are bullies and those being bulled. When I saw this movie I was intreged that something like this was a play. Not only does the movie get to be shown on television where older bullies see Bang Bang Your Dead, but the play is shown in high schools to the ones that are the bullies. Althought he title is over the top it get to the climax of the movie.
