Jim Brown and Gene Hackman give fine performances in Riot
6 February 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

While I had watched this movie previously in the '90s, I forgot many of the details such as a dream sequence of Jim Brown being surrounded by a bevy of young black women in bikinis at a swimming pool or the following scene of the homosexual prisoners dressing up in drag. Quite exciting especially during the second half when the warden returns from his vacation and decides to fire away, his staff being held hostage damned. And, yes, Gene Hackman is also very good as a fellow prisoner who instigated the whole thing with Brown being a reluctant participant. So on that note, Riot is highly recommended. P.S. That Bill Medley song sure is hauntingly effective every time it plays on the score.
