Surprisingly GOOD!!! could of been better if it has Popular Actors., 16 June 2006
Author: Liakot Ali from London

Lockdown is a Low class Prison Movie that Entertains Big time. I enjoy watching Black Crime movies and like Prison Movies. I saw the cover of Lockdown and did'nt expect much. I still rented it out, since i had nothing else to watch. Surprisingly, the movie was very good with just a few bad scenes. If you enjoy watching Prison Break and like brutal prison movies, then this is a good choice. The movie shows some disturbing, brutal and harsh realities of American Prison life. It focuses on three friends who get arrested in suspection of murder. One of the friends, stupidly shoots at the police, which is why they get arrested. The acting ain't so professional, with not so popular actors and rappers in main roles. The storyline and direction was however very impressive. For all fans of this genre, i know there have been some crap movie with rappers in recent times, but this is worth the watch.
