Fantastic film. Haven't seen it in years, but I remember being very fond of it. Leave it to HBO to come up with some of the most interesting work in the last 20 years or so.

I never knew the back story, so can't vouch for the authenticity of the plot but it was very watchable purely as a film. I thought Samuel L added the most weight to this film and Kyle McLaughlan was also very good. Interesting story but I have no doubt it has been embelished. Worth seeing if yo get a chance.

Not one of Jackson's best but the storyline is gripping.

solidna drama, sto nije ni tesko ocekivati od HBO-a.

kad god na TV ugledate neki njihov film mozete bez problema ostati na tom kanalu i sanse da ce te bas fuliti, ili se razocarati su male.

vec sa bioskopskom distribucijom i onim sto prave velika studija za velike ekrane ne bi bili tolike srece.

Movie I have been wanting to see for over 13 years but no clue as to it's name, luckily to my AWESOME search skills and luck, not only did I manage to find the name of this anonymous film but even a source to view it! Was glad to of found it, solid 4 stars as the ending felt rushed.

I watched this on HBO a week ago. It wasn't like a movie from the 80's. Samuel L. Jackson's acting was good back then and better now.

It's nice to turn on the TV and find something that's not too bad. Although I missed the first 15 minutes of it, I found this interesting enough to watch til the end. Samuel L. Jackson was good.

Not one of Samuel L Jackson?s finer films, but not a bad storyline. Watchable, but not miss-able.

Against the Wall is about the 1971 prison riot in Attica. It starts Kyle MacLaughlin as a guard just in training as the riot hits, and Samuel L. Jackson as Jamaal X, leader of the prisoners. All of this is directed by John Frankenheimer.

This film isnâ??t too bad for a TV Movie (HBO to be exact) and achieves its goal in proving that both sides had their innocents and evils. Good enough to watch if youâ??re just really missing Prison Break or something of that sort.

This is a classic film but one which although good didn't seem t bring as much as I remembered from the first time I watched it. However, worth a watch for sure.

This film gave an intriguing look into the prison system. It's not an uplfting film, but it gives great insight and a true "wake up call" to those unaware of the Attica riot.
