More prison CAMP

"The black character says he's American, but he has the most obvious British accent in the world. He can't speak a word of German, yet the couple seem to understand each other. With all the Black American soldiers in Germany, the director is telling the viewers he couldn't find a single Black American who spoke German (or could take a crash course) to play this role? Further, the black guy is kinda queeny. I don't think he would survive in an American jail. Yet in this film, he is DA MAN, and both white German prisoners and officers are in awe of him. This movie is a watered-down "Oz" written by some German who's obviously worships us brothas. And worse, the English subtitles were riddled with spelling errors. That only added to the campiness of the film."
Fairly HOT soft core prison flick!

"Erotic content good (requisite shower/rape scenes with ample full frontal footage). Dramatic content NOT very good or believable. Do German prisons really allow inmates to choose their cellmates and to set up housekeeping as lovers? Attractive actors. The "special features" interview with the 2 lead actors is very "honest" and worth listening to to hear their views on porn. Apparently the sex scenes are "hardcore" according to the actors, although the scenes appear to have been edited--perhaps for the US release?"
They deserved to be locked up!

"Locked Up opens with Dennis (Marcel Schlutt) going to prison for 2 years for credit card fraud and while in prison he falls in love with Mike (Mike Sale) who is serving 15 year for murder. The supposing dilemma comes from Dennis leaving before Mike's time is up.
This movie is flat out laughable soft porn that has many beautiful faces and bodies and really nothing more. The cells are the size of dorm rooms and have funishing like lamps, radios, televisions and coffe makers to name a few. Some of the prisoners are wearing uniforms and some are not, not to mention I think most prisons would have you remove your piecings both the belly and the penis. The movie only becomes more ludicrous as the two fall in love after having five minute quikies in a cell. Several scenes were diturbing like the guy that was drenched in spit and the shower rape scene. If all this wasn't bad enough when you get to the last scene of this movie, and see how it ends you'll want the writer, director and producer locked up and the key thrown away."
But Is It Art Or Porn?

"German Caucasian Dennis (Marcel Schlutt) gets sent to a German prison for credit-card fraud and falls for Mike (Mike Sale), an African American (?) who is serving a sentence of fifteen years for murdering his wife. What you expect in a prison movie is here: the gang cliques, the drug activity, the violence, the crooked guards and of course more sex than on a Saturday in a New Orleans House of Prostitution.
Although this film is not rated, there is frontal and backal nudity galore, some S & M activity-- for instance, a scene where the bigger, stonger inmates line up and spit on one of their "punks"-- visual masturbation and a gang rape. So is the movie pornographic? You be the judge. Pornography, for my money, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. A supreme court justice once said he couldn't define pornography but he knew it when he saw it. The photographer Tom Bianchi would say that whether or not something is pornographic depends on the artistic ability of the artist. Certainly Robert Mapplethorpe photographed and exhibited in world class galleries images that make some of these look tame by comparison.
Not everybody acts in this film. Some of the men obviously got cast, not for their acting prowess, but for their bodies or perhaps only men with buffed bodies go to German prisons. Marcel Schlutt as Dennis has his moments. The ending, however, is a quite a stretch. This movie probably is one for watching on a cold, winter night."
