Frank Leone is nearing the end of his prison term for a relatively minor crime. Just before he is paroled, however, Warden Drumgoole takes charge. Drumgoole was assigned to a hell-hole prison after his administration was publicly humiliated by Leone, and has now arrived on the scene to ensure that Leone never sees the light of day. Written by

The brief dance done by Eclipse (Frank McRae) when he scores the touchdown during the football game resembles the "Ickey Shuffle" made famous by Elbert "Ickey" Woods [Ickey Woods aka Elbert Lee Woods] who played fullback for the Cincinnati Bengals in the late 1980s. See more »

Sly Stallone hit gold with this seriously under rated film. This is surely Stallone's best films with Cliffhanger and Demolitian Man following.
There are superb performances from the main man and his supporting characters like Donald Sutherland(the assignment), Tom Sizemore(enemy of the state), John Amos, Sonny Landham(predator) and Danny Trejo(desperado).
The story is gritty and involving, and the best scene is Sizemore's last bid for Stallone's friendship. Watch it and you'll know what I mean.
This a great film. Do not miss it. Rating=4/5
