Movie Info

Set in a futuristic prison, this made-for-cable television actioner chronicles the attempts of a pair of prisoners to escape. It is a nearly impossible feat as all of the prisoners wear special radio collars. Each prisoner's collar is attuned to that of another. Should the two linked collars get more than 100 yards away from the other, they will blow up. To make it even more difficult, prisoners are not supposed to know which of the hundreds of inmates is their match.more

Audience Reviews for Wedlock (Deadlock)

not a bad "defiant ones" homage (as they say in hollywood. in the army they call it "requisitioning". in the hood they call it "jackin' yo s*#T". i love this planet!) star chemistry carries this chase for the mad, mad money all the way to love, honey!

Very good marks to this high-tech update of The Defiant Ones, which pairs Rutger Hauer and Mini Rogers (both superb) as convicts linked by futuristic collars necessitating their remaining in close proximity... at the risk of impromptu decapitations.

Stolen Diamonds... Inmates In a prion bound by electronic device's that will blow their heads off if they get more than 100 feet apart ... A prison warden that loves plants ..
Great Idea Poor Outcome!! If I recall The Inmates In Running Man Had to wear the same Explosive Device On their neck??
Its An Ok Little Movie Nothing amazing ...
