At the age of nineteen, Claude lands himself in a maximum security penitentiary. His strong will and good looks immediately land him in trouble with Tarzan, the leader of a ruthless prison gang. Claud's talents as a fighter squash Tarzan's brutal advances, but at a high price. Now his life is in danger. Zi zi, a rival gang leader, notices Claude's potential and offers him protection. But in return, Claude must stand up to members of the Tarzan gang in organised fights for control of prison territory. As the battle intensifies, and the fights become more brutal and dangerous, Claude senses himself sinking deeply into Zizi's clutches. In desperation, he appeals to The Phantom, a twenty - year veteran of the penitentiary. But when a horrifying experience experience shakes Claude to the core, will he listen to the Phantom and resist the call for vengeance? # That's what's on the back of the DVD cover, I think the film must have been a B movie, the acting is bad, the fight sequences are ...

21 October 2005 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Released under "Banged Up" (Cert 18) in the Irish/UK markets.

Avoid this made-for-TV tripe at all costs.

Not only does this "movie" suffer from an absence of plot and a liberal peppering of flash-backs throughout (yawn...); the disc production is wholly sub-standard:

A) This movie is *dubbed* into English (not subtitled). B) Colour conversion from NTSC->PAL is awful. (Unless the original was also bathed in a crimson hue?) C) The disc is labelled as "Aspect: Full screen". Unless your TV is capable of manually resizing its picture, this movie plays out-of-aspect. Changing your player settings to 4:3 (PS/LB) are not sufficient to repair the over-stretched (tall) picture.

My DVD store were kind enough to refund my euro4.75. Hopefully others will be as sympathetic!

As for the English-language release title ("Banged Up"); this is surely a pun too far?
