It's still white-knuckle tense, and held together by dozens of small, well-observed moments.

Stephen Dorff's powerhouse perf as an ordinary Joe trapped behind bars with warring ethnic psychopaths propels "Felon" well ahead of its expose/exploitation brethren while still avoiding the pious learning curves of Frank Darabont's prestige prison dramas
July 18, 2008
Tough, brutish prison drama with an easy windup, but good acting and an uncompromising take on the prison system.

A good cast and disciplined direction add some distinction to Ric Roman Waugh's Felon, which is basically the old tale about an innocent man corrupted by a stay in prison.

A subplot involving corrupt guards makes the movie even duller than the score that sounds like a rusty squeezebox.

For a film that seems to pride itself on its depiction of prison-reality, it feels extremely movie-phony.

Directed with pounding energy by Ric Roman Waugh and acted to the hilt by a cast comprising several of yesterday's stars proving their mettle, the movie delivers the thrills and emotion that prison movies require.

The stuff that happens in a tense, taut new movie called Felon is nothing less than electrifying.
July 16, 2008
Felon gives everyone their tidy and expected due but outlines a realistic enough cycle of how a man's life can easily spiral out of his control.
