I was really surprised in the quality of this film. I thought it'd be a very low budget affair, but instead it had great acting and a cool script. Bravo!

"Lockdown is the kind of film that makes you rethink who your friends are!!! Avery is aman who has a bright future ahead of him, and in the blink of an eye it's all taken from him when he ends up in prison for a crime he does not commit. The film touches on loyalty, keeping the faith, doing the right thing, and a strong will to survive. Master P being the executive producer and an "actor" in the film had me wondering should I bother watching this. I'm a big fan of Richard T. Jones, so I gave the movie a chance. I'm glad I did. The movie had a solid plot, and solid acting. If you are a fan of Oz, you will enjoy the movie."

"This movie was great! It depicted jail life to the fullest. I always tell my son, that by being with the wrong crowd or being in the wrong place at the wrong time can get you in a world of trouble and this movie just backed me up to the fullest. The movie is a must see for older teens and adults alike. It will definately make you think twice about wanting to be a thug or having a "go-hard" attitude. Please see this movie"
A no limit film.........that actually has something 2 say

"My brother put my on to this movie.Considering the fact that I don't really care for no limit films...thats pretty amazing.Anyway, I was honestly shocked at how good this flick was.Great acting? good script?...sorry, I'm still bugging over the whole no limit film thing. Damn good movie. But this seriously is not for those with weak stomach.It's probably as realistic as the mpaa would allow a movie to be without branding it with the dreaded nc-17 rating. Unfortunately, I've seen stuff like this with my own eyes so this movie kind of f'd me up a little bit. But don't be turned off by it's graphic nature. Just take a few deep breaths and give it a chance. you won't be sorry."

"This was not a bad movie. Seeing Master P on the cover made it hard to rent this movie but it was pretty entertaining. Although only half of scenes in this movie were believable. First of all, it was a little hard to fathom the fact that Avery (Richard T. Jones) was an avid swimmer and was pursuing it as a career, but on the other hand it was good to see because it is different than the typical story of the brotha using football or basketball as an avenue to get out of the hood. Second, the way they ended up in jail had to be the worse timing in history, the worse judgment made by a dude in the back seat in history, the worse timing by a dumb dog in history and the worse reaction by anyone who owned a dumb dog that got shot by a cop. The way they went to jail just made them look pretty dumb and made me cringe. And for the people with weak stomachs, there might be some material in here that might make you look away, like the male on male sex abuse, and the shankings were pretty graphic. Other than that, it was entertaining, somewhat realistic movie and the acting was pretty good even Percy Miller wasn't bad. Oh, Can't for get ya boy Clifton Powell, he was outstanding in this one, but heck that's no surprise!!!"
