One of the better psychopath movies

This movie tells the tale of an overzealous straight A student (Lucas) and a teacher with a conviction to do the right thing. Lucas is pretty much the antithesis of an hero. He is driven by a desire for excellence but is ultimately flawed in character due to his unwillingness to accept criticism. This becomes quite apparent in the first act of the movie. As the movie progresses his English teacher grows suspicious because "unlucky incidents" start to happen after a little confrontation takes place. At first his teacher just tries to shrug it off but as the severity of the sabotage increases he grows uneasy about the situation. Wondering how far Lucas might go to get what he wants. As expected things escalate towards the end in a final showdown between the two protagonists. I personally really liked the movie because it was focusing on a more realistic portrayal of psychopathic behavior. I'm also glad to see that at least 1 of the Sprouse twins is still acting.

Quite good, actually.

I didn't expect much as this movie was so low on the radar, but man, Dylan really stole the show on this one. He did a great job depicting the ins and outs of a psychopath focused on only one thing. The story has been done, as people have said, but I'd have to say that this is one of the best films that involves students attempting to blackmail a teacher. I did find it particularly compelling that they portrayed Iago in Lucas, and went so deeply into the metaphorical tendencies that the characters both shared, which makes sense when Lucas attempts to paint Iago in a heroic light rather than the villain he was. It was a well written script for the most part, with only a couple of downfalls. Predictable, in a sense, but the acting, cinematography and pacing helped fill the gaps. Kent and Dylan enforce a strong casting in this movie, and the other actors did their jobs well, also. Highly recommend to watch at least once.

Great what you can do with a low budget

Just watched The Snowman and Hangman multi million pound thrillers and this beats both of them hands down. Great acting especially from the two main relatively unknown actors, smart story filmed well and although its not massively original "Apt Pupil" being brought to mind it does what it does well and is well worth a watch if you are looking for a decent thriller. This is the type of film that proves you don't need a massive budget to make a good film.
