Storyline

Sam Connor kidnaps his young daughters, April and May, sells them to strangers, and accidentally kills his wife when she attempts to intervene. Sixteen years later, April is an out of control outlaw who has come into a life of drugs and crime, while May has grown into a straight laced, refined woman. The plot thickens when April avenges her mother's death by killing her father, and May is sent to jail as the prime suspect. Fortunately, Detective Arman, instantly taken with May, fights for her innocence and tries to get her out before she is taken down by other hostile prisoners.

Uneven, but more depth than you'd expect
11 April 1999 | by UthmanSee all my reviews

Yes, yes, there is the obligatory strip search scene and the group shower scene, but CELLBLOCK SISTERS delivers a little more quality than the typical girls-behind-bars exploit. On the one hand, the revolvers sound like cap guns, and Christi Engel dyspeptically eats the scenery as Warden Smith. On the other, Annie Wood turns in a fine performance as April (the bad sister), sort of a female equivalent of George Clooney, both menacing and appealing at the same time. Apparently she has not appeared in any films since 1995, which is a shame. She seems to have star potential. British actress Gail Harris is competent as May, the "good" sister, but the oversized breast implants hinder her credibility as an ingenue. Unless she's playing a tart, she needs to keep her clothes on.
