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

Some of the production got locked-in during the filming of Lock Up (1989) when the inmate count numbers didn't add up at the end of the day so a number of cast and crew got delayed in the prison until around 7.30 pm at night until the calculation was correct. 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
