Excellent B movie

As far as B movies go this is one of the best. I laughed at the funny parts. The Action was great. Its definitely a Quentin Tarintino like film. All 3 are worth catching, this one is the best though. Mr.T makes an appearance in part 2 which is pretty good as well. The Midget smoking crack and kicking some a@@ rules. If you like Oz on HBO, this was the precursor. The prison footage is real raw and nasty. Definitely one to own, not just rent. This movie is probably more for guys than girls. Its one to break out around your friends who probably missed it the first time around. You get pretty pumped up during the fight scenes as well. I guess some of the acting could be better, but you could say the same thing about the Rocky movies.
