Quotes

Butcher, Con: You gotta deal with that situation, or else everybody in here's gonna know you're a punk. Everybody, you understand?
Jimmie Rainwood: No, I don't understand. What am I supposed to do, fight three guys?
Butcher, Con: No, just one. Jingles, the one that braced you. Fist fights are for free men. You gotta get a piece and make a move.
Jimmie Rainwood: What are you talking about?
Butcher, Con: Do him.
Jimmie Rainwood: You're telling me I should kill him?
Butcher, Con: No, I want you to marry his motherfuckin' sister. You better get with the program, slick.

Guilty Until Proved Innocent
27 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Riveting entertainment of someone accused of a crime that they didn't commit and how the system can be tainted or shuffled against you on a whim. The shocking part is there is nothing you can do about it. I suppose that is why it takes 13 years to execute someone in this country too. We want to be sure before we take a life. Good story, acting and plausible more times than not. The characters draw you in and you either hate them or root for them, but sitting still is not an option with your emotions in full play. This movie activates the emotions. There are plot holes, but we trade them for the raw adventure to be found in watching the movie and joining the characters. There are 4 movies that depict life in prison accurately. 1. American Me 2. Blood In Blood Out 3. The Glass House and this one. If you want to scare someone straight, there is the line-up to remind them to behave them selves now or fight for your life later. This movie also reminds us of how power and money can rule and how we end up serving those things. Then, they finish us off all the worst for it. Catch this movie without interruptions, have a snack ready, and be entertained. I did a bowl of home made double roasted sunflower seeds. I recommend this over biting your nails or smoking to relieve the tension found in this movie at times...Bon Voyage
