According to the article "15 Things You May Not Have Known About 'Lock Up (1989)'" at the website Mental Floss, "each morning, director John Flynn had the producers hand-select 200 of the prison's 1900 inmates to work from 7:30 a.m to 5 p.m. that day. The production reportedly provided the lucky inmates with donuts and coffee each day-luxuries they weren't normally allowed". The actual real-life prisoner extras and background artists were paid a minimum daily wage of US $26 per day. See more »

Great movie,Stallone is back after Rambo's success
I really enjoy watching this movie.Although the movie isn't much famous as Rambo or Rocky series it's a real masterpiece.Stallone gives an excellent performance as Frank Leone- a convict that is pushed too much and not fairily from the prison warden (D.Sutherland) who has a personal vendetta with him.Frank finally achieves in an astonishing way to prove that the warden has set him up in order to escape.There is where his personal drama ends.
It's a drama-action-romance movie that it's worth to see it not only for the good performances(S.Stallone,T.Sizemore,L.Romano,F.McRay) but for the suspense especially in the end.
For me it's just a Stallone's classic one, so take a seat and enjoy this really entertaining movie
