exceeds all expectations
6 January 2011 | by (Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico) – See all my reviews

Condemned men await their execution in this death row prison drama which, through the script, acting, music, setting, and overall ambiance brings home the anguish of their ordeal better than anyone's wildest expectations. Mickey Rooney seems born to play this part, and this film will make one want to find the nearly impossible to find Big Operator in order to see how this actor could so totally inhabit the part of a tough and ruthless criminal. Of course we remember his earlier days which amazes us as to how he could so brilliantly portray the character he does in this film. However this is more than merely Mickey Rooney. When the bullets start whizzing all over the cell block, you pretty much have to take your hat off to the director for making such a tough as nails film.
