This action drama is set in an affluent, conservative neighborhood seeking protection for its high school students. A company known as "The Sentinels" is hired to guarantee security at the school. However, the men in this company are more Nazi than Himmler, and they are soon bullying and abusing the students they were supposed to protect. After the editor of the school paper gets involved in resolving this bad situation, he enlists the help of the former girlfriend of Sentinels leader. The two eventually begin to figure out what needs to be done.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Dangerously Close is more than just a stylish shocker. It captures the ugly underside of a new teen-age obsession, forcing us to marvel at its ferocity and shudder at its possible consequences."
‑ Patrick Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"Unfortunately, the adolescent world created within the film extends to its conception."
‑ Nina Darnton, New York Times
"Dreary and instantly forgettable."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"It surely does not contain any socially redeeming value."
‑ Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune
"This movie lacks the courage to admit what it is really about."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"The movie revels in the kind of sadism it criticizes."
‑ Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer
"The direction is slick (occasionally too slick) and the acting adequate, although none of this can save the film once it begins to go astray."
