Storyline

Julian Taylor, a Marine veteran and former middleweight boxing champion loses control in a bar fight and ends up serving time for aggravated assault in Retrieve Prison. Not long after his arrival, Julian is introduced to Captain Brown, a menacing, overbearing guard who tags him "dogboy" and orders him to a claustrophobic dormitory called the doghouse. There, Julian meets fellow inmate Willy Owens and learns that the prison's vicious attack dogs are used to catch and kill escaping prisoners. And there's more. With Captain Brown as their leader, a secret society of hunters uses the prison dogs to hunt inmates for sport and money. When Willy finds out about it, he attempts to recruit Julian as a potential ally, but not knowing that Willy is an undercover cop, Julian refuses to get involved. Eventually, Willy finds the evidence he needs to expose the scandal, but before he can act, he's savagely attacked and killed by Captain Brown's dog. Now, Julian and Willy's former colleague, ...

Do you know what you are? A f*cked up guard who kills cons? You maybe able to get away with that in Australia... but not over here.
22 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well Clark Kent is going to need all his skills to stay alive in this one.

Dean Cain ("Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman") is an ex-Marine that loves to fight, and it gets him in prison training dogs to chase after prisoners who try to escape. His buddy Willy B (Richard Chevolleau) we soon learn is trying to find out what's really going on. He is working for the super hot DA Jennifer Dern, played by the super hot Tia Carrere, whom I haven't seen since Wayne's World. Maybe I'll try to find a copy of Zombie Nightmare to see how she does in horror.

But, that's another story, here she is trying to enlist Cain's help to catch the evil Capt. Brown, played by Bryan Brown (Australia, "The Thorn Birds", FX), who has a scam going on the order of Emil Fouchon in Hard Target.

Not a great script, typically "B", but some good nasty-dog-on-man action, and a great pair exposed in the Warden's (Ken James) strip poker game as the hot DA comes running to rescue Cain once she figures out what is going on. Ah, but she doesn't know everything, yet.
