Storyline

Years after being shot by his eldest son Darius and taking the fall for his crimes, former gangster James "Animal" Allen serves a life sentence at Folsom Prison. When a riot breaks out between the Blacks and Mexicans, Animal is transferred to Susanville Prison. While serving his time, Animal learns that his son, James Jr., is framed for murder and the one responsible for calling the shots is on the inside. He is blackmailed and forced to return to his dark past as a fighter in order to save his son. On the outside, Darius, now a reformed man, maintains his relationship with his father and does everything in his power with the help of his lawyer to gather enough evidence to clear James Jr's name.

A surprisingly great actual gangster-drama.
30 December 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

If you already liked Animal 1, than you gotta watch the second movie, but also without seeing the first one this movie is just great !! The Movie is about the big OG Animal who is at prison. (After what happened in the first movie). A lot of fishy business is going on there in cause of the prisons priest and he wants to get Animal involved.

Outside of prison his two sons try to live a normal life without a mother and a dad in jail. And than everything goes crazy because of.... I won't tell.

This movie is a great action filled and thrilling drama (especially thrilling). You wouldn't expect such grate dialogs and actors and this movie has really a great story. And it's just great to watch Animal beating up others while he's on the other side being a caring father, Vyng Rhames is just the perfect actor for this role.

In my opinion one of the best movies of 2007. Just a must-look.
