Lesson Plan (2022) – Action Movie on Netflix – Review: A New Full Contact Movie – Martin Cid Magazine – Martin Cid Magazine

‘Dangerous Minds’ meets ‘Street Fighter’ in Kraków
Lesson Plan is an action-thriller directed by Daniel Markowicz, starring Piotr Witkowski. The screenplay is written by Daniel Bernardi.
A “badass” movie with a retro touch that so reminds us of the movies back in the 90’s with fighters like Van Damme and Lundgren.
Note: there is no English dubbed trailer of this movie. Despair not, for the movie is dubbed, and quite well, might I add.
Following the death of a teacher, a traumatized former police officer takes on a job at the high school intent on taking down the fentanyl dealing gang he believes is responsible for the murder of his friend.
Here we have a number with simple characters and a storyline that is a replica of 90’s Hollywood productions, but more inclined to moralize.
There is hardly a scene where there is no fighting, and when there is none the “master” shows his tender and patronizing side.
A wonderfully kitschy movie, in style, form and narrative. Laden with fight scenes, it will probably entertain quite a few.
The highlight is when the protagonist quotes Bruce Lee with the classic “be water” line. The rest of the movie is consecutive fighting scenes, let it be during training or on the streets where the bad guys hang out, with the odd interjections of romantic scenes (the protagonist does have a heart). It is not a decidedly bad movie as it stays true to the fighting movie genre, but the story is overly dramatic, if not melodramatic, moralizing, and has some truly kitschy moments, which in a strange way contrast with the constant kicking, punching and what seem to be krav maga moves.
