Not a bad prison action film but I like Undisputed 2 the best. Vinnie Jones is good as he stole every scene he was in and he's still a bad-ass. The MMA fighters were intense and provided a fine performance than I expected.
As far as the fights, they have all the slow motion and quick cuts you might expect, as well as the choreographed pulled punches, but at least they seem to be trying.
"GOOD TO BE KING, BABY!"
A well respected police officer named Danny Bolan (Tony Schiena) is set up after a drug bust goes sour. Pegged as a criminal and locked up in the Blackwater Penitentiary for a crime that he didn't commit, Danny tries to play it cool but deep down inside he's worried, and rightfully so, as he's "locked down" with criminals, (many of whom are mixed martial arts - MMA experts) that he helped put away and his biggest nemesis, Anton Fargas (Vinnie Jones) has the warden, guards, and most of the cons in his pocket.
Fargas runs a cage fighting racket, prostitutes, and everything else you can think of from inside the prison's walls. Naturally, he forces Danny to fight his fellow inmates to the death in cage matches in the prison's basement. (As if trying to clear his name, wasn't hard enough.)
The warden is helpless to do anything and the tough and sexy dominatrix prison female guard (Bai Ling) is more interested in a banging Vargas than cuffing him. BTW, she is unconvincing as a prison guard enforcer (what is she, like 70 pounds?) but when called upon, she will disrobe.
Meanwhile a cutie from Internal Affairs Gwen Bower(Sarah Ann Schultz) takes an interest in Schiena's case (let's face it: the guy's in undeniably good shape and hot to boot. I am particularly curious about that tattoo he has placed strategically) and it's up to her and TV veteran Dave Fennoy who plays Danny's cellmate, Irving, a washed-up martial arts expert to get our hero out of prison before he gets killed in there.
The music is amped heavily in each fight so if you are looking to test your channels with hard music and brutal fights this would be a decent flick to do that with.
