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.Daniel Markowicz’s Lesson Plan has a cold opening. The movie suddenly thrusts us into an action scene, kills a character, and then shows someone haunted by grief. Out of these three things, only the action manages to evoke a slight response, while the other two elements remain alien.Lesson Plan 2022 Movie Download
This is your cue to understand the logic behind the making of this film. Director Markowicz wants to show off well-choreographed fights. He could have done the same on an Instagram reel because apart from action, he is incapable of doing justice to other ingredients present in this bloody dish.The soul of Lesson Plan can be found in the scene where Damian (Piotr Witkowski), a “history teacher,” takes the children out of the classroom and begins to exhibit his admirable fighting skills. I have put history teacher in quotes because he is not really a teacher. Damian used to be a cop. In fact, he is the man who gets into a fight in the beginning, and it’s his wife that dies, throwing him into a pit of grief. Now, Damian is posing as a history professor to eradicate the drug problem in a Polish school. Furthermore, he wants to prove that his dead best friend was not responsible for manufacturing and distributing drugs on campus.Since the basic premise is out in the open, let’s return to the scene where Damian shows off in front of his students. He doesn’t know how to teach the subject assigned to him to his students, and no student ever complains about him because he doesn’t get to teach them enough lessons. Currently, the kids need to learn how to fight, and that’s something Damian can teach them in his sleep. Lesson Plan is also like Damian. It only knows how to execute action scenes and looks for excuses to go into one. No wonder the movie flounders whenever it touches on other things like drama, romance, and friendship.
