The prison where Money and The Beast are locked is Corcoran, the same prison as Felon, the other prison film from director Ric Roman Waugh. See more »
Before his capture towards the end, Money internally conceals a capsule containing a razor. Given that following his arrest he would still have had to go through a trial and processing, it's hard to believe that he could have successfully concealed this for the weeks or months this would have taken.

These cops think the more they lock us down and isolate us it strips us from our power, they even think we are a dying breed, they're dead fucking wrong.

It has been a long time since I wrote a review but this movie deserves my time and attention. I definitely did not expect this movie to touch me in the way that it did.
The Pros:- -It is so well edited that I had to recheck the run time of the movie when it ended. Two hours flew past like the wind.
-The acting is great.
-The plot will reel you in and never let go. This is simple story telling at it's best.
-The dialogue will never feel boring and the prison scenes are shot in a way that will leave you in awe.
-The score is one of the best I've heard in recent memory. Reminds me of Sicario, another great film. Some people said it could have been better but I disagree. The score had me wishing I can write music that good for movies. It had a certain twist to it, sounds of flutes or sounds of Arabian music undertones.
The directing? All hail Ric Roman Waugh. I'm going to search for some of his other movies. If half are as half as good as half of this film, I might pass out with glee.
The Cons: There are non I can think of. I wrote this review a few days after seeing the film so that I can write a honest review absent attachment to the film.
Go see it.
