The film Bad Boys(not to be confused with the 1995 film of the same name) is a prison movie starring Sean Penn.It has played on TV a couple of times and I have seen it twice.This is an excellent film.Its up on my list of "favorite prison movies" along with "The Green Mile" and "Life".I have not seen Shawshank Redemption but I have read the novel and it is excellent as well.Unlike those movies, this is a very brutal and violent prison movie.Don't watch it if you don't like violence.The film is about a young criminal named Mick O Brian.One day he gets into a shoot-out with some latino's, when the cops come he drives away but loses control of the car and accidentally kills the brother of a latino gang member named Paco Moreno.He gets sentenced to prison.Paco now wants revenge on Mick so he rapes Mick's girlfriend and gets sent to the same prison as Mick.Its hard to choose who to root for in this film.Both men deserve revenge for what happened to them.While in prison they meet all sorts of prisoners such as Horrowitz, a geek who can make bombs out of normal objects and two strong prison rapists named Tweety and Viking.Bad Boys is a very interesting prison movie and I recommend it to fans of prison movies.
