Decent story, but it the pace drags a bit in places. Plot - son gets killed, father sets himself up to go to the same prison as the men responsible, seeking revenge. But the movie centers more on one of the suspected killers than it does on the revenge plot. And I did like the scene with Marvin Gaye's song playing on the radio! A good prison movie that might be best viewed in two sittings.

better than most prison movies but not the best. Good for fans of the genre.

Very cookie cutter, low budget movie, where scenes are too long and acting is bad.

[font=Tahoma][color=black][b][u]Movie Or Soft Porn?[/u][/b][/color][/font]

[font=Fixedsys][color=#aeeff9]I think constantly writing scripts based on the violence behind prison doors has finally clogged the mind of Preston A. Whitmore, frying his membrane into two pieces. The first piece only responds to violence, and the second to homosexuality. Seriously, ninety percent of footage showed the actors, naked as the sun, showing their asses like a soft porn snuff film. The other ten percent involves your usual jail house rock film - blood, fists, disputes, and corrupt prison guards. I don't know what is more disturbing, the actual constant showing of asses, or the poor writing and directing abilities of Preston A. Whitmore. [/color][/font]
[font=Fixedsys][color=#aeeff9]Do not watch the movie if you suffer from suicidal tendencies - watching this movie might push a person off the edge. I guarantee this appalling attempt to be creative will give you the strength to go all the way and pull the trigger. [/color][/font]

Fair story. The acting is below par and a film like this needs strong performances. Some okay action scenes, the plot has been done frequently before. Nothing special.

If you value your time and life do not watch this movie. The director didn't know what type of movie he wanted to make. The story is all over the place.

I really only watched this one because Boris Kodjoe is in it! It is actually a pretty decent movie, that keeps you interested.

A single father's only son is shot during a mishandled drug transaction, the two guys responsible were charged only with drug trafficing. He intentionally gets arrested in hopes of taking care of the situation himself.

I think it has a good storyline & some of the characters & situations are unforgettable. I think it also has a strong message behind it when everything is said & done.
