Frank Leone is nearing the end of his prison term for a relatively minor crime. Just before he is paroled, however, Warden Drumgoole takes charge. Drumgoole was assigned to a hell-hole prison after his administration was publicly humiliated by Leone, and has now arrived on the scene to ensure that Leone never sees the light of day.Written by

When Leone (Stallone) is getting forcefully taken to Gateway Prison, he is shown getting cuffed while just wearing a sleeveless t-shirt. However, when is getting taken outside to be transported, he is wearing another (prison?) shirt on top of that. With his hands cuffed, the guards would not have been able to have Leone put another shirt on because the cuffs would have gotten in the way. See more »
Move it, Ace. That's my spot.
Uh-uh, that's my spot, too.
Any spot in here that isn't yours?
Nope, they're all mine. You wanna use it, you gotta pay.

Not so fast, Ace. I'm not gonna gouge ya. That little thing around your neck? That'll buy ya a spot for the day.

Very under rated Stallone movie, whose storyline accurately fits his acting credentials.
Lock Up I feel is one of Stallone's better movie's. The storyline seems to fit the acting character of Stallone very well. Sutherland's depiction as the Warden "Drumgroole" also was excellent. As always, Stallone seems to epitomize struggle in movies very well. In the movie Stallone is a convict just trying to ride his time out, but the warden makes it very hard on him. John Amos also depicts the caring but hard as nails Prison guard "Micon" very well. In my opinion Lock Up is a Top Level Stallone film, and didn't get nearly the credit it deserved. I certainly would recommend this film. One word that can describe this film would be "EMOTIONAL" If you like a tough, gritty prison movie, then you will certainly like Lockup.
