No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
A synthetic pastiche of sci-fi, action movies (borrowing feely from the superior Mad Max movies), and routine prison drama that's a sensless, incoherent mishmash that even a reliable pro like Liota cannot salavage.
A throwback to the energetic sci-fi films of yesteryear. Frantic and Fun.
A watchable futuristic prison flick. Decent B-movie thrills.
Martin Campbell's generally an underrated action director, but this is just okay, not one of his finer efforts
