Every negative comment made by every other person on this website has been true.
The film has a plot that is mildly interesting, but executed with complete amateur ability. The fight scenes are poorly choreographed. The gun fights are boring. None of the rappers - especially Ja Rule - can act. The Seagal character twist was predictable. 49er Six was such an obvious rip-off of The Matrix's Trinity. I mean, jeez, why else would she be dressed like that? On top of the bad acting, the music is awful. It blends in poorly, is repetitive, and makes no sense. Why put rap music in a PG-13 movie? Every 5 seconds the lyrics are blanked out, and it's very obvious whether you've heard the songs before or not. And I like the Crystal Method, but they did the same thing - picked a song with the MF word that is poorly edited. I would wager MF was blanked out 60 times during this movie. Completely stupid.
Last, the writer knows absolutely jack squat about prisons and especially executions. To believe the security in this prison is that bad is pretty weak and insults the viewers. And now that everyone has seen The Green Mile, even those who have never seen a real electric chair know you don't just sit them down and turn it on.
Still trying to figure out why Ja Rule didn't kill Seagal. His friendship was bogus. But this doesn't matter, the film still sucks and is not recommended for anything other than kindling.
