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.

Not a lot happens until Animal's Ving Rhames) son (K.C. Collins) is arrested to force Animal to fight for a gang leader (Conrad Dunn).

While his other son, Darius (Vicellous Reon Shannon) is trying to free his brother, a new attorney (Deborah Valente) is assigned the case. Animal has to cool things off on the outside so he can solve the problem inside.

Sure, there are plot holes you can drive a semi through, but it is mindless entertainment with Ving Rhames providing enough excitement to keep you interested.

The ending was predictable...and it wasn't.
