Wade Porter (Stephen Dorff) is a successful businessman; having just secured a bank loan to expand his thriving construction business, so all in all, life is going really great. He is enjoying the American Dream, sharing it with his girlfriend and son. However their dream becomes a nightmare when Wade unintentionally kills a burglar that had broken into their house in the middle of the night on his lawn. He is sent to trial and accepts a deal proposed by the prosecutor, being sentenced to three years in prison.

However, during the transportation, there is an incident in the bus and Wade is framed and sent to the maximum-security wing under the command of the corrupt Lieutenant Jackson (Harold Perrineau - seen in the series - LOST). From this point on, we see a total transformation of a man who is forced into an appalling callous new world where he has no control over his future.

He is introduced to his cellmate John Smith (Val Kilmer) who was sentenced to life revenging the death of his entire family. John befriends Wade and gives him helpful advice on how to survive in a maximum-security prison and further avoiding the pit-falls of the American penal system - rife with corruption, power crazed guards and repulsion.

The story is extremely well portrayed and by the time the credits start to roll, you are left reflecting on how the correctional system has so many flaws and how it manipulates individuals to become their worst, both as inmates and as guards. However, the film also shows that even in these dire circumstances, there are great acts of humanity and compassion.

This movie is powerful and compelling.

 Brilliant

Such a moving film with camera work that makes you feel like you are there living the nightmare! The film stock and lighting used mean that there is grain on the film throughout, but this does not detract from this great piece of cinema. Well worth adding to your collection today!!! Please note - very strong fight scenes!

Wasnt really sure about this but from a slow burner it turned into a cracker of a movie, with a good story from beginning to end. This wont disappoint.
