Editorial Reviews

The time is the future and youth gang violence is so high that the areas around some schools have become "free fire zones," into which not even the police will venture. When Miles Langford (Malcolm McDowell), the principal of Kennedy High School, decides to take his school back from the gangs, robotics specialist Dr. Robert Forrest (Stacy Keach) provides "tactical education units." These human-like androids have been programmed to teach and are supplied with weapons to discipline problems. These kids will get a lesson...in staying alive!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost Time For The Ten Year Reunion September 27, 2008
Format:DVD
If you were to take Mad Max, The Terminator, The Warriors and Lean On Me, and mix them in a blender, you'd get Class of 1999. It was directed by Mark Lester who made the excellent Class of 1984. This movie is sometimes considered a sequel to that film, but it isn't. Both movies have high schools and violent gangs, but that's where all comparisons end.
In the near future of 1999, violent street gangs have taken over, so bad that the police don't even bother with certain areas of the city(sounds like Death Wish 3!). The damn kids are still required to go to school though! A mullet and contact lens sporting Stacy Keach has taken military battle androids and given them new programs to act as teachers. Three of these androids are given a test run at the worst school in the city where Malcolm McDowell is principal. Meanwhile, ex-gangbanger, Cody, is released from prison and he's off to school. Renouncing his old gang ways, he quickly becomes the target for former gang members and old gang rivals. His brother, Angel, is now in the fold and snorting drugs(as well as his mother!), much to Cody's disappointment(sounds like American History X). Cody gets his groove on with the principal's daughter and tries to stay out of trouble, but he seems to be the only one noticing something odd about the three new teachers. At first they merely beat the snot out of the misbehaving punks, but soon their old military program starts to take over and then it's full out war on the students. Now Cody has to join his old gang and team up with his rival(who looks like Kevin Dubrow from Quiet Riot) to fight back against the android faculty.
Needless to say, this is a fun movie. Not quite as good as Class Of 1984(that movie kicks some serious butt!), but a good time nonetheless.

4.0 out of 5 stars Into science fiction? Try this one! September 14, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Ah, this is one of my favorite old movies. I caught this way back in 1990 or 1991. At that time the year 1999 (in the eyes of a fifteen-year-old) seemed to be a very distant future.
OK, so the year is 1999, and America's highschools have a tendency of turning into warzones. A possible solution to this problem is presented by highschool principal Langford, the Department of Educational Defense and a developer of killer-cyborgs, Megatech.
In Seattle, three new teachers are introduced in what little still remains of Kennedy High. Unknown to the students, their new teachers aren't even human. But when more and more students wind up dead it becomes clear that Megatech's cyborgs have grown out of control.
I love this movie! I have always enjoyed science fiction, and this movie delivers. It's got a bit of excellent action, provides some laughs and a spectacular final with some surprisingly good special effects! It's all got this sort of campy feel to it that I really enjoy in movies. And does anyone out there know the song "Come The Day - Class of 1999" by Midge Ure? It's at the end of the movie, and worth checking out as well!

Hell yea, CLASS OF 1999! In the future there's a high school were the students openly carry machine guns and shoot them off all the time. Girls raped, nerds knifed, cars armor plated its like "Saved by the Bell" meets THE ROAD WARRIOR.

The Department of Education Defense decides to use this school as an experiment so they send in three "reprogrammed" battle droids as teachers. You can already see where this is going. Now it's like "Saved by the Bell" meets THE TERMINATOR in ROAD WARRIOR world!

Bad hair, futuristic gang clothes, lots of drugs, non stop gunfire, psychotic amounts of screaming and yelling, a drill to the skull, explosions, over the knee spanking, flame thrower violence, car chase, motorcycle chase, an albino mullet, forklift death the only thing missing is mutants and rampant female nudity.

Truly a masterpiece of the low budget action genre, but what else would you expect from the director of COMMANDO! "Let off some steam, Bennett."

5.0 out of 5 stars Cult Classic April 10, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Mark L Lester is a director whom has seen His fair share of Critics,Parents,and intellectual screwballs picking on Him and His films over the years.His adaption of Stephen Kings Firestarter was ballyhooed as the worst Stephen King Film ever.Firestarter rules as the one of the best of the Stephen King Adaptions in my book.This film, Class of 1999, is a winner all the way.No spoilers here.My best advice to anyone that loves movies that move and move and move more is to BUY this film.If you are a collector of Fantasy,Horror,and Sci/Fi flicks don't let this one slip you by.Your DVD collection will be Naked without this Mini-epic.See if you can count How many good actors/Actresses are in this production.C.Courtney Joyner wrote this exciting screenplay-A great follow-up to Mark L Lesters Class of 1984 and a show that will keep your interest all the way to the bloody finish.They really don't make movies like this anymore.Many thanks to amazon and to supermart whom I ordered this film from.5/5 A Cult Classic.And don't forget the Class of 1984 also directed by Mark L Lester.

4.0 out of 5 stars I love B- Movies like this a total classic November 29, 2006
Format:DVD
If you don't know about this movie I would advise you to run to the store and buy this movie right away. Class of 1999 is a B- Movie tour de force starring Bradley Gregg and Traci Lind with strong support from Malcolm Mc Dowell, Pam Grier, and Stacey Keach (in a sinster role as head of Megatech)The plot is rather simple, The large cities have been taken over by gangs and for the schools to re-open, Malcolm Mc Dowell (the principal) makes a Faustian Bargain with Stacy Keach of 'Megatech'to bring three Androids to keep teach the hard cases. Little does Mc Dowell know that these "Battle Droids" are not only teaching but committing murders, war games on two of the rivial gangs led by Gregg who falls in love with the "principal's daughter" Lind. They find out that Keach wanted Pam Grier (who could teach me anytime) Patrick Kilpatrick to wage war on campus. Like many classic 80's B- Movies, the effects are chessy, and Seatle looks too much like a battleground. But Love this movie and it keeps your attention for 90 minutes.
