Despite a low budget and predictable story line, Lockdown has undeniable power to it, fired by some fine performances and a terrifying portrayal of prison life that rings disturbingly true.

Lockdown makes that excruciating and often terrifying ordeal of incarceration gut wrenching and palpable.

[A] modest yet intermittently powerful film.
