The cons were fun.
17 December 2012 | by gabby_bmSee all my reviews

A few minutes into this film, you know it's B-grade quality. I'm OK with that. But that B-grade was really pushing it. if it weren't for the swearing, I would have thought it was a C-grade film.

C... as in Christian. C... as in Cameron

Yeah, the acting was so bad that when the sister was seen holding her father's bible on the couch, I thought it was gonna be PREACHIN' TIME!

I gave it an extra star for not doing that to me- especially after the pathetic fighting I was forced to watch in the first two minutes. Really, I did watch it all the way through, but there just isn't anything remarkably good or bad to write about. This film sat there flopping like a carp in the bathtub.

No. That's not fair. The carp would have been more entertaining.

If you like low-grade prison movies, I'm not sure you can get worse than this one.
