Worth a look ..... better than expected ...............
28 June 2010 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

This almost unknown revenge flick has a surprisingly interesting script, and action both inside and outside the prison ties together nicely. The acting is acceptable from Chris De Rose and Chuck Jeffreys, however Richard Lynch is the one to watch here, as the killer without a conscience. He proves especially nasty, and his performance elevates "Lockdown" to slightly above average territory. The movie drags in places, with some scenes that do little to advance the action. It should be noted that the film features a nice assortment of older souped up cars, including a sharp 58 Chevy. In a revenge movie, the ending can be critical, and here it proves quite satisfying. - MERK
