But then he's withdrawn from the patrol and gets the order to lead the actor Tom Slade around on their base and explain him everything: The popular star wants to get "the feeling" for his next movie.

A great film with plenty of action, charisma and emotion.
This is an excellent film with two totally charismatic leading actors both exuding personality. The interplay between them is fascinating as it develops. The two characters are totally different and it is interesting to notice what common ground circumstances can cause between two such diverse personalities. The action sequences are exciting and realistic and the prison scenes duly horrific. It is good to see a film not being afraid to illustrate what has become an all-too-familiar real-life situation. The only unnecessary part of the film is the romance which does not, fortunately, spoil the film too much, but it does remain surplus to requirements and adds nothing of value to the movie.
