Plot Summary
Upon hearing that Bunker Hill Military Academy will be demolished to make way for condominiums, the cadets barricade themselves inside. With a full arsenal of weapons, the ability to use them and a keen sense of discipline and hierarchy, the kids prove formidable foes of the local police and the parents laying siege to the Academy. But when the National Guard moves in, morale breaks down and the boys slowly start deserting the compound.

Professional Reviews

"[It] works thanks to Becker's understated direction and three strong leading performances." 07/01/2004 p.138 9 of 10
"See this movie if you haven't seen it before. If you did see it in years past, see it again! I watched it tonight with my son for the first time in close to 20 years and it was just as good today as it was back then...And if it doesn't hit you in the gut and make you think about ""things"" for a few minutes, you missed the entire point of the movie. Watch it again."

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
"TAPS works as an uncommonly engrossing story, primarily because the performances are so well done. All of the cadet roles are well acted, not only by seasoned actors like Hutton but even by the very young kids who struggle with guns and realities much too large for them." - Roger Ebert
