Dog Pound is guaranteed to frighten, crush and leave you feeling hollowed out to the point where the viewing is nauseating due to its outstandingly terrifying look at the horrors of prison life and it is all held together by its incredibly talented young cast.

A well-meaning but ultimately disappointing and hollow take on a juvenile center focused around the lives of three boys recently put into the system, and what they experience during their time there. For the first half of the film, it is surprisingly gripping and realistically filmed and plotted. However, in the second half of the movie it veers left into "melodrama" territory, where you hardly start to believe anything that is happening and the story takes its lenses off of the boys in the facility and instead makes a hail-mary middle-finger attempt at the correctional officers. The acting is pretty good, about what you would expect for an indie film. In the end though, there are just too many scenes that feel fake and forced, not to mention pretty predictable, and the film never seems to decide what it wants to be truly about anyways.

A decent indie, if a little uneven, cheesy and unrealistic in places.

Was absolutely terrific. Watched it more than once. The absolute hopelessness and depressing atmosphere of this movie is spot on. Adam Butcher played his Character extremely well.

Great movie. Really shows what your actions can cause you to go through. Emotions run high in this movie so beware.

Likeable characters. The problem is that they're placed in a situation rather than a story.

One of the best and most original indies I've seen in a while. I suggest it to anyone.

The ending ruined a pretty decent movie.

Pretty accurate for a 90 day program in juvi... expect for the over the top dramatizations. The riot and beat ups explain why the tables in a real jdc weigh 40 lbs, seats built into tables screwed into the ground, no one allowed to be unattended (and randomly roaming around), and why all the sporks/cups need to be counted and taken back after meals. Besides that and the beat ups and the dickheads (Banks...) this is a pretty realistic summary.

Brutal and Harsh don't begin to describe Dog Pound. A story about a juvenile detention "prison" and its occupants might be a bit exaggerated but the acting done by Adam Butcher as the angry ring leader of the boys is beyond his years.

Um...I was into it wondering where it was going then it ended. Idk. What was shown was OK I guess.

I've seen better fucked up prison movies, but I've seen much worse. This one delivers every cliche you want out of a prison movie, and it's pretty violent. I liked it!

Better remake of '79 Scum.

its a good prison watch but it gets pretty brutal 3/4s of the way through. still up in arms about the ending, it can be taken as a lesson or there is just nothing that changes I suppose.
