Trivia

Jim Brown insisted that someone as big or bigger than him be cast as the lead bad guy in the film in order to make his major confrontation with Glover at the end seem like a fair fight. This is why the hulking Ted Cassidy was cast as Glover. See more »

Excellent Prison Flick
13 November 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

First-rate prison crime drama with ample doses of action and humor. Exceptional of its type. Jim Brown stars with a great supporting cast including Ted Cassidy (Lurch from Addams Family) and Frank DeKova (Chief Wild Eagle from F Troop). Roland Bob Harris is great as the sleazy captain of the prison guards who meets a deservedly gruesome fate. Look fast for the legendary Dick Miller in a bit part as a carjacked taxi driver. For sensitive types be warned it's a violent movie with lots of foul language and racial slurs. Despite this, it somehow actually manages to be a fun movie that keeps you engrossed the whole time.
