Wow.. Just watched this gem, and I can assure it is extremely underrated !
8 February 2015 | by ganjafor420See all my reviews

As soon as I was done watching, I immediately felt like writing a review. Which is something I quite rarely do.

I think some of the reviews it's gotten so far are quite unrealistic.

I've watched tons of prison movies. This is by far one of the best I've ever seen!

Don't wanna give anything away, but I will say I enjoyed every minute of it. I couldn't recommend this more if you're into prison films!

I can't possibly understand why it has such a low rating. I mean, the acting + story was spot on! With visuals also on point, how can you complain?

Was shocked when reading through reviews with people complaining about there not being anything new here, and here I was, being surprised at every turn of the movie!

This is quite the gem of a prison movie! It even has a pretty decent emotional aspect! Giving it a 10/10 because this deserves well over 8 in my opinion!
