Review of Deadly Class

60 minutes

Set in a dark, comic book world against the backdrop of late 80s counter culture, it follows a homeless teen recruited into a storied elite private school where the world’s top crime families send their next generations. Maintaining his moral code while surviving a ruthless curriculum, vicious social cliques and his own adolescent uncertainties soon proves to be vital.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Its the dark version of Harry Potter. An orphan with scare on his forehead is allowed into a secret school with different groups of kids learning the dark arts.

The near constant bodily injuries are rather dumb as the kids seems to heal for no apparant reason in an episode or two - even when they are stabbed. There is surprisingly little sex though.

The plot meanders all over the place touching on the backstory of all the numerous main characters. There doesn't seem to be much point to any of it. It might be somewhat interesting to watch if you like seeing people get beaten or tortured.

The acting and cinimatography are well done. Some of the fight scenes are well choreographed. The whole secret school thing comes off as contrived. The headmistress is weird and the monks seem artificially inposed for no reason.

Horrible last episode to the first season. If the only thing that happens is that everyone dies, then that is not writing talent, that is a mental condition.

Things I hate: Everybody smokes cigarettes. I think there should be a 1 million dollar fine for every second someone is smoking on screen.
