 The People's Review of Light It Up


score = 100 
This was the BEST movie I have ever seen! It made you want to root for the Highschoolers, even though you knew it was wrong. I live in a area where there is very good schooling and we have everything we need. It showed me how fortunate I am. It must be very hard to live like that. I say this is a MUST SEE! I hope if you see it, you enjoy it as much as I did.

I think this movies sent a great message about what happens when you neglect the children you are supposed to be teaching and making better people. It shows what happens when no one will listen to a group of kids who only want to better their school.  It has a great acting cast and plot. "A must see!!!"

I think that was the best movie I ever seen in my life! How can all these people not like it?  It really made you think about life and what can happen at anytime.

I thought that this movie gave a great point of view. A veiw of how a lot of things are today.  The cast was great! I don't care about what anyone else thought, but I would pay full price for this movie and would recommend it to many people.  This is one of the best that I've seen compared to other stupid movies that have gotten a better score than this one.  "A must see!" -Most Definitely!
