Awful. Cheap. Stupid.
12 March 2015 | by flikeySee all my reviews

Great thing about IMDb is that users can submit reviews. Bad thing is that people directly involved with the film also get to submit reviews. I wonder why anyone involved would want you to see this. It's an embarrassment. So here's the real review. First off, I love prison flicks, I love Australian movies and there are some awesome Australian prison flicks. This is not one of them. The actors are amateurish and wooden. The cinematography is cheap looking. The script is idiotic. A plot is a series of connected events that logically progress to tell a story. This film has a situation instead of a plot. A situation can be fully portrayed in about 2 minutes. That makes this nonsense about 90 minutes too long. Bad directing, bad script , bad acting - it's a complete waste of time.
