Trivia

In the interrogation scene Burke Wyatt was going to be tortured shirtlessly, while extremely sweaty. He was perspiring on Warden Golan's shoes, which caused him to be slapped in the face and then tortured with electric shocks to his nipples and armpits. Johnny Messner refused to shoot this scene, claiming it to be homoerotic. See more »

Just not strong enough
24 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw this one yesterday after reading the plot line. I was hoping for something similar to Prison Break but with a lot of action.

This could have been made with a lot more effectiveness. Cop goes into prison as a convict to nab a bunch of crooks who run a fighting tournament and stream it Live on the internet - old wine in a new bottle.

Still it could have been handled better. Weak dialogs and ineffective editing, only shows that very little effort has been spent on the script.

Stunt scenes look powerful but that alone cant lift the whole thing up.

Johnny Messner does a clean job - cannot complain about him.

I was looking for something similar to Prison Break mashed up with some Urban Fight but sadly, the fight was present but the shrewdness of the Prison Break series was totally missing.
