In the year 2001, many government institutions have become privatized commercial ventures, like the men's prison where young Riki-Oh (Sui-Wong Fan) is sentenced to 20 years for manslaughter and assault.

If you can handle the torrent of grisly violence, you'll find yourself royally entertained by this Hong Kong actioner.
A rather astonishing, starkly stylized blood flood set inside a privatized prison.
A wild martial arts feature that combines a prison movie setting with the sort of gore effects one normally finds in a horror film.
Gore galore but not much more.
You should have been running to the video store before you got to this sentence.
Apart from Ichi the Killer, it is the only live-action film ever to capture the anarchic, excessive, highly stylised violence of manga.
Nam ... delivers an amusing and exceedingly cinematic comic-book phantasmagoria.
