How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Hondo remarks that watching exciting police chases improves his own driving abilities when on the job. If so, how might watching the repeated shootings and brutal attacks in this film affect an individual’s sensitivity to violence?

Does the fact that Street and Gamble are both trained S.W.A.T. members make it easier or more difficult for them to confront one another? When facing an attacker, does it help to be able to anticipate their actions?

How did the media feed into the frenzy surrounding Montel’s hefty offer for freedom? What part does it play in making this criminal an idol in the eyes of the public? What negative or disturbing behaviors are given air time in our society?
