Storyline

In Germany, twenty-something Dennis Tormann is serving a two-year prison sentence for credit card fraud. This term is his first ever behind bars. He is placed in one of the toughest cell blocks ruled by an inmate named Lutz, from who he tries to stay clear. Among other things, Lutz, supported by one of the guards named Muller, deals in drugs. Kevin Letarski, a young, slight inmate who is Lutz's whipping boy, befriends Dennis and tries to show him the ropes of prison life in their block. Although inexperienced with men, Dennis is attracted to Mike, a black American inmate in another cell block who is half way through his fifteen year sentence for murder. The attraction is mutual, and the two begin a relationship. Despite knowing that Muller, Lutz and his thugs do not like this relationship as it keeps Dennis out of their sight, Mike and Dennis, with Kevin's help, do whatever they can to spend time together while staying clear of Lutz's sadistic ways. Ultimately, Dennis has to decide ... Written by Huggo

Stupid, more stupid, Locked up
19 June 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

The challenge to bring a homosexual love story to the big screen, which ends out being interesting and catchy, for not only a limited gay audience, is a task no many production companies can lift; "Locked Up" is no exception.

Already from the beginning, when Dennis (Marcell Schlutt) arrives in prison, the border between drama and porn is crossed - he has to undress in front of two uniformed macho men. Standing in nothing but his low boxers, one of the guards command him to take "It all" off - so he does, and it leaves you with the question "Am I watching a gay porn movie from Germany?" But before you can crab the DVD-cassette to find out, something that seems like a social realistic story starts; or does it?

Dennis' inmates are quickly introduced; they are all standing in groups in the hallway outside their cells, looking like "We have to talk about something and be rough". The so-called leader presents himself to Dennis, giving him a small lecture in behavior and the must of having a toned masculine body.

The love story between Dennis and Mark (Mike Sale), who by mysterious reason is digging dirt outside Dennis' window, does not work at all. Their "coffee-love-sex" sessions in the prison breaks are both ridiculous and stupid. At no point you get the feeling of attraction; it's simply laughable - especially the scenes where we see them live together in a double cell with carpet, curtains and toilet.

To sum up; more then one hour of stupidity, bad acting and soft gay porn cinematography. The only plus, so to speak, is the extremely funny interview with the to actors.

A random German gay porn movie - just without visible sex.
