Movie Reviews

Thought Provoking
June Dean | San Diego, Ca. USA | 04/10/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Kiefer Sutherland's performance allowed you to see the human side of a murderer and what contributed to the path he chose. All the characters were believable. No matter what your positon on the dealth penalty, it makes you think."
Best Prison Movie I've Seen!
Disgusted Parent | 07/11/2007

"I usually dont like prison movies or Kiefer Sutherland movies (although I love him as Jack Bauer in 24), so I was pleasantly surprised by how good this movie was! This is by far the best prison movie I've seen. The acting was superb, especially from Sutherland who did an excellent job portraying the two sides of his character: one moment a violent, vile, hard-core murderer who has committed horrendous crimes and would probably do it again if given a chance and the next moment a vulnerable condemned man who regrets his mistakes and would have lived a different life if he could, a man who is the victim of a bad childhood and a foster care/juvenile justice system that failed him. Never has an actor done such a superb job of making me care about a character that my natural instincts were to hate.

I liked that this movie was able to make its point without being preachy or sappy. It did it by telling a good story, with interesting characters and excellent acting. It made me really think about my own views on the death penalty and what makes some people turn bad. I can't say that it changed my views, but it made me think. Most importantly, it makes me really want to DO something to help troubled youth BEFORE they get to the point of Sutherland's character.

Whether you want to be challenged to think or just want good entertainment, I'd recommend this movie highly."
