Storyline

Senator Whitmeyer, whose grandson was murdered while an inmate at California's infamous Doscher State Prison, arranges for Gulf War vet John Woodrow to investigate the case. Woodrow enters the prison in the guise of a convicted murderer named John Wilson. He quickly learns that the Senator's grandson was killed by a corrupt and sadistic prison guard named Lt. Hopkins. Hopkins discovers Woodrow's true identity and has him tortured with electric shocks but Woodrow manages to escape along with a few fellow inmates. A chase and a shootout ensues in the surrounding desert. Written by dinky-4 of Minneapolis

Repeating history
6 May 2003 | by Metal-9See all my reviews

2001 wasn't perhaps Eric Roberts best year. Both Raptor and this came out. Watched Raptor a while ago and really thought it sucked and being Erics worst. But that had it´s share moment of fun and D-standard. This one doesn't have a thing.

Tommy Lee Thomas is the name of the probably worst actor in these days. The story lacks any punch and the whole thing feels even slower than a snail breaking in curves.

The two thing that stands out are Martin Kove and Eric Roberts. You could argue about their effort being good or what but compared to the rest they are above all criticism.

I say thank you Roberts see you next time (and hopefully a better one).
