Storyline

Senator Whitmeyer, whose grandson was murdered while an inmate at California's infamous Doscher State Prison, arranges for Gulf War vet John Woodrow to investigate the case. Woodrow enters the prison in the guise of a convicted murderer named John Wilson. He quickly learns that the Senator's grandson was killed by a corrupt and sadistic prison guard named Lt. Hopkins. Hopkins discovers Woodrow's true identity and has him tortured with electric shocks but Woodrow manages to escape along with a few fellow inmates. A chase and a shootout ensues in the surrounding desert. Written by dinky-4 of Minneapolis

A very entertaining film
21 August 2005 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Move over, Vin Diesel. Get lost, The Rock. My new favorite action star is Tommy Lee Thomas. Clearly he studied a lot of Clint Eastwood films and he mastered the legendary star's steely-eyed squint and sparse line deliveries. He also seems to have studied numerous fitness magazines, as half of the film finds him running about shirtless (and looking like a million bucks). But he also co-wrote the screenplay and clearly possesses a sense of eccentric humor -- at one point, he and another inmate are engaged in an intense session of Go (the ancient Japanese strategy game) while later in his torture is prefixed with a strange debate that has him advocating "Terminator 2" in favor of Eric Roberts' beloved "Lethal Weapon." This film is very diverting and highly watchable.
