    It's good and entertaining albeit unrealistic looking, but in this instance you don't look for realism, what matters is core message.

    Typical Robert Redford movie. Self righteous, sanctimonious, ... had to turn it off.

    Implausible prison uprising action flick saved by Redford and Gandolfini.

    It doesn't matter that this is set in a military prison, this an unrealistic and idealized view of prison life. It's like telling the story of the prison hostage taking and response at Attica, without acknowledging all of the really bad things the prisoners did to get there message heard. Redford and Gandolfini are solid, and the movie is entertaining with regards to the battle of wills between the two. The prisoners plans are well crafted and not too over the top unbelievable as in some prison escape movies, and the final sequence is worth the wait.

    While it drags on a bit and is relentlessly grim to the point you might not care, The Last Castle's great acting and relatively rousing narrative make it a good, mature thriller.

    A HELL OF A MOVIE .NEVER MIND SCRUTINY. NO DIRECTOR IS EVER GOING TO GET IT RIGHT. TOO MANY MOVING PARTS.! IT DEMONSTRATES THE HUMBLENESS OF A WARRIOR EVEN WHEN HE'S BROUGHT DOWN TO ITS BITTER MEANS . HE FUNCTIONS ON . THE MISSION IS ALL. TO THE LAST CONSEQUENCES. SOLDIERS NEVER DIE ;THEY FADE AWAY BY THEIR OWN HAND. LONG LIVE THE UNDERDOG! THEY ARE THE ONES THAT MAKE THINGS HAPPEN AND NEVER CLAIM IT THEIR OWN. THAT'S HUMBLE TO THE CORE!
