Storyline

Randy commits a crime that would normally get him probation and a hefty fine, but in the "three-strikes" world of justice, he finds himself locked up for 25 years. His cellmate Jake is a congenial yet remorseless lifer who casually informs Randy that he slit his wife's throat because she slept with another man just three months after they exchanged vows. Jake recognizes Randy's fear and offers him advice on how to make it in prison. But it soon becomes clear that Jake has much more than mentoring in mind as he takes Randy under his wing. "Jailbait" sets a darkly cerebral tone, juxtaposing brutality with the unattainable ideal of intimacy in the harshest of psychological environments. For these two men so yearning to be anything but who they are and where they are, power is the goal, and it's never clear who truly holds it right up to the last unsettling moment.

Weird and depressing...
26 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...but I'm a weird and depressed guy so I liked this movie. :-) It kept me interested from start to finish and very rarely do films do that for me these days.

I've never been to prison and hopefully never will go, but I've researched the subject and in my humble opinion, Jailbait is a very realistic motion picture.

I never heard of the flick until I saw it at Best Buy. It looked like something worth watching, so I added it to my Blockbuster que and received it today. There were no special features on it and I liked that because it keeps everything about a mystery, which is why I will not tell much about it in this review because I believe the less people know about Jailbait, the better.

I believe everything should be a surprise for the viewer so that way you can see everything through the eyes of the main character.

So do give Jailbait a watch but keep in mind that it is weird and depressing.
