Excellent prison movie.
12 April 2001 | by (Mesa, Arizona) – See all my reviews

Bloodfist III is a credible movie on many levels. It is an excellent prison movie, a legitimate hand-to-hand combat movie, and even a good message movie. It's far better than Stallone's Lock-Up. The fight scenes are much closer to being real than most of Don "The Dragon" Wilson's movies. Most people wind up hurt severely and unconscious after just one of two blows (just like real life). I'd give this one a solid 8.
