Plot

Ninth grade students are taken to a small isolated island with a map, food and various arms. They have to fight each other three days long until the last one remains and are forced to wear a special collar which will explode when they break a rule.
 

Comments

Average School kids kill each other on a desert island. Be wary of movies that use constant music on the soundtrack (it's usually used to cover up bad acting). Violence is supposed to be shocking, but too much of it on screen just makes the audience numb. Only one really good scene : when the teacher is shot and then gets up to answer his phone. The ending is contrived.
