I had watched this when I was a teenager. We watched all the "punk" movies that we could and this was one of them. So I knew what to expect. The slang from the book would have been a little harder to understand if I hadn't of taken Russian as my language in college. But I liked the book, it is just a little scary when the things that are happening now seem like the madness that is happening in the world. It seems like a matter of time before the draconian methods of straightening up the riff-raft that are used in the book become the standard. Although, I think they might use these methods on the masses instead of just the criminals. We are far from having a completely obedient society.
