In 1974, a hot-headed 19 year old named Michael Peterson decided he wanted to make a name for himself and so, with a homemade sawn-off shotgun and a head full of dreams he attempted to rob a post office. Swiftly apprehended and originally sentenced to seven years in jail, Peterson has subsequently been behind bars for 34 years, 30 of which have been spent in solitary confinement. During that time, Michael Petersen, the boy, faded away and 'Charles Bronson,' his superstar alter ego, took center stage.

There are good movies about prison and prisoners eg. The Shawshank Redemption, Natural Born Killers, Felon and so on. Everybody has a favorite one, I guess. This movie is just plain wrong from the beginning till the end. Pure violence without the least value added, illogical characters, zero story, just a bunch of shots after each other, like a newbie is trying to make a movie without a concept. Do not waste time on watching this crap, it is not worth the time and the money. I would classify it as one of the biggest failures of prison movies. :( I don't understand how could it get such a high score on IMDb. :)
