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?
