poorly done script
13 June 1999 | by walker-7See all my reviews

The movie while attempting to portray a death row message and possibly spark debate goes about it using implausible scenes. Firstly no death row would be so poorly guarded or easily taken over. Also the scene with the swat team bursting in is a phony. No swat team could be that slow or inept if they were all the hostages would be long dead. Good acting by Bruce Davison and Joanna Cassidy cannot save a bad script.
