While in the corrupt prison, Animal works for the powerful prisoner Kassada, but when he meets the revolutionary Berwell, his view of life changes.

When Animal (Ving Rhames) is approached in the prison yard and told to come and meet with Kassada (Chazz Palminteri) he tosses away the wadded paper in his mouth. The next cut shows him at the table with Kassada and it's back in his mouth. See more »
This a real movie about thug life and the inescapable revolving door trap that is so hard to break. Ving Rhames plays the animal which is not an accurate name for his character ,since his character is no different than a mob boss or a drug cartel kingpin.... this is how you have to be to survive on the streets.. excellent acting by Jim Brown who in real life is a PEACE ACTIVIST.. Ving Rhames does an excellent performance ,, who i think is worthy of an academy award nomination....Chazz Palminteri also performed well as a supporting actor.... this is a must see movie for Kids going down the wrong path in life,, since it shows the consequences of a leading a violent lifestyle....
