Audience Reviews for Riot


It's weird that what started out as a boring movie ended up getting better & better as it went along.My only complaint was that I loved the way it ended but I hated it as well.You'll just have to watch Riot to find out what I mean.I also could've done without seeing the prison party but I guess thats what you do for fun during a prison riot
