Movie Reviews

"Hey Pop, the time you hit Hazen in the mouth, was it worth
Roberto Frangie | Leon, Gto. Mexico | 12/14/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Burt Reynolds plays Paul Crewe, a reprehensible character discovering, in a prison, dignity and esteem... You see him, at the beginning of the movie--as a rising star--beating up a woman, stealing her car, drunken driving, insulting cops in a bar, resisting arrest... He's seen so funny when he insulted the miniature cop who's about to arrest him, while the cop's partner is laughing openly...

Eddie Albert was very charming when he meets Paul Crewe at his arrival to Citrus State Prison... Aldrich wanted to play Warden Hazen as the guy who had the veneer of normalcy, the veneer of being a good executive, the veneer of keeping it all together till it starts unraveling... He really was just a despicable, oily, warden type... In one game scene, we see him over and over again, getting up just with that same look of shock on his face...

Ed Lauter (Captain Knauer) is wonderful... He runs the football team... He is a bad guy and he represents everything that is wrong with that prison system and everything else... He changes as a result... And to see that is just so delightful... He's got the classic Ed Lauter's scene at the end... James Hampton plays Caretaker, the character who brings the team all together and pushes Burt's character ahead to win the game...

Ray Nitschke plays the toughest, meanest linebacker in football... Richard Kiel, Bob Tessier, Charles Tyner, Michael Conrad, and Harry Caesar give the film a certain veracity, you almost thing you are in jail...
