    Pump Up the Volume, in addition to presenting an engaging story, has tapped into a universal truth about rebels with causes.
  2. Roaring into the microphone with all the passion he can't put into his life, Slater gives this movie what it otherwise so desperately lacks: a reason for being.
  3. Working within the confines of the teen-age genre film, Pump Up the Volume succeeds in sounding a surprising number of honest, heartfelt notes.
