What? A prison movie with no shower scene!
31 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw Cynda Williams in One False Move and i was hooked. She is a raving beauty and can act too. Naturally, I grabbed this DVD as soon as I could.

Unfortunately, like Greed, it didn't live up to the potential.

The main problem was the lack of real support for Williams. James Russo (you might remember him as Mikey Tandino in Beverly Hills Cop) hasn't really gotten any better in a lead role. he just didn't display any real emotion in this movie. Yeah, he looked energetic enough when he was getting it on with Williams, but she can inspire the best in all of us. Outside of that, he was just a drunken prison guard who liked to beat on people. I am sure there are thousands of those available for casting.

The back story for Williams was also weak. It was there, but it just wasn't fleshed out enough.

And, the ending. Oh, the ending is a mess. Who in the world could believe that a prison guard with a drinking problem would have enough money to flee to Mexico? What was he going to live off? His looks? I'm not buying it.

Watch it for Cynda Williams because there is nothing else here.
