The substitute
Kevin Reynolds, the director of “One Eighty Seven”, a film written by Scott Yagermann, supposedly a teacher himself, shows he is a man that clearly understands today’s problems in the inner city schools.

Some of the children, of mostly immigrant parents, are lured to join gangs in order to survive the hostile environment. These are the same children who could benefit from the free education in their new adopted country. Instead of making something out of themselves, they create their own problems and will end up doing menial work, or in jail because of the choices they make.

This is the basic premise to this story, in which, a decent man and an excellent teacher, is stabbed at the beginning of the film, and not only is his body injured, but also his spirit. The relocation from Brooklyn to L.A. proves to be the wrong move. If Trevor Garfield thought he had it bad in New York, he is not prepared for a school system in California that seems to be a disgrace.

This particular school, where Trevor is hired as a substitute teacher, has some of the most dangerous teen agers of the city. It appears that kids have the upper hand in whatever is going on because its principal is more interested in avoiding being sued by the students than in educating them. In fact, they rule the school. The worst thing that comes out in the film is how Cesar, a teen ager, who is a bully and a criminal, can’t even read! There are a few other aspects the film is trying to explore. Teachers who are corrupt, like is the case with Dave Childress, who admits to having had sex with one of the students. The young woman who is being helped by Mr. Garfield turns against him, only to redeem herself at the end, after it’s too late for her to recognize a valuable lesson Trevor taught her.

Samuel L. Jackson gives an intense performance portraying Trevor Garfield. Mr. Jackson shows in the film another dimension to his method of acting. He is never boring. John Heard is the corrupt Dave. Kelly Rowan is Ellen, a teacher who judges her fellow teacher and is repulsed by what she finds out. Clifton Collins is good as Cesar, the ignorant young man, a product of the gang mentality. Karina Arroyoave is seen as Rita.

“One Eighty Seven” is an eye opener about why some students aren’t learning in school and a tribute to the teachers that are trying to educate them in spite of the horrors in the classroom.

Review By: jotix100
We’ve got a 187 (good movie) in progress
Shot in sear brown, this one stokes up the fire. Here’s a more intense gang movie as to the Boys In The Hoodz, types. This one really has you involved right from the start. Playing the more introverted types, out of the norm, for Jackson, it’s just an excellent performance, among many fine others. He plays a teacher who’s finally pushed, beyond breaking point, by a trio of homeboys, at the new L.A high school he’s attended, after surviving a knifing, by a disgruntled and failing homeboy, Jackson’s character, before this, as a more brighter, cheerier teacher. He makes the transformation well. As the movie furthers along, he becomes more pushed, may’be so much so much, he’s exacted violence on these troublemakers, or worse, driven to kill one of them. Getting with the times, the movie, written by an actual teacher, turns a different corner of plot, into a sort of thriller, where as to the teacher being on trial. This realistic movie, gets a proper grip on the teachers situation, as to what these poor souls endure, like living in fear, subjecting to taunts, threats and ridicule, where others are driven into madness, like the John Heard character. It’s easy to see how some people can say it’s a morbid and biased telling of story, where everything not as bleak as this movie shows, but I don’t agree. The same could say about River’s Edge, how it all wallows in the mire, it’s all so depressing, but the truth be told, some tales are, and you can’t hide from the truth, especially when written by someone one, who has first hand knowledge of he subject. The inevitable showdown between Jackson, and three thugs, who invade his home, where he’s forced into admittance, regarding a dead homeboy friend of theirs, is the film’s real moment of sweating intensity. The leader, Caesar is one fearful bad boy, a bust out performance by Clifton Gonzales Junior, a professional new star in the making. They have Jackson, play Russian roulette, Deer Hunter style, Caesar watching a bit too much t.v. We are witness to him yelling expletives to his long suffering mother, and when his homeboys friend turn on him, as Jackson informs them, of his physical abuse towards his mother, Caesar’s the one who turns scared for a pith, as Jackson makes his getaway. 187 has great music, and we learn a bit too, in the classroom, not just out of it. The performances excel, like Heard, Rowan, and the versatile Tony Plana, as the headmaster at Jackson’s new school. Of course, no one can hold a candle to Clifton Collins, blistering performance, one you’ll remember for years to come. May’be this film could act as a teaching tool, for bullied teachers, whatever, and curb this madness, but fat chance. You really need to cut teachers a break, cause bad things shouldn’t happen to good people. Tight compact drama, all the way.
