I watched the movie, Cheaters (2000) and I disliked it. The movie, Cheaters, stars Jenna Malone. Jenna Malone is known for her movie role in The Hunger Games movies. She plays the character Johanna Mason in those movies. In the movie Cheaters, Malone plays the lead role in the movie. Her name is Jolie Fitch.
So, what is Cheaters about? Cheaters is about a group of students from an under-privileged high school named Steinmetz High School. A teacher at the school named Dr. Plecki assembles a team of high school students to compete in the Academic Decathlon Competition. The students from Steinmetz High School try to study, but they do not do well in the competition.
However, something happens before the next competition. A student from the Academic Decathlon team finds the answers to the next Academic Decathlon exam. Dr. Plecki and the students on the Academic Decathlon Team face a choice. Should they cheat? Or, should they do the right thing?
The movie, Cheaters, is about many things. It is about the difference between what is right and what is wrong. It is about underprivileged youth. It asks if it is okay to cheat just for the glory of, “the win?”
Cheaters is a movie that will make you think. It is a movie that will make you question things. It is a movie that warns you about the world and the way it really is.
Despite all of this, I thought that Cheaters was not a good movie. I give this movie a 3/10 ranking.
Until next time…
