Goofs

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.

Quotes

Bottles: The fact is, we all started out as someone's little angel. And a place like this forces us to become warriors or victims. Nothing in between can exist here.

Heavy. Intriguing. Surprising. Worth watching
26 July 2017 | by HexecutionerSee all my reviews

Unexpectedly, this is one of the better films released this year and is definitely worth watching.

Albeit the story-line seems rather dull and predictable at first, I assure you that past the 20min mark you'll be on edge and glued to the screen right to the end.

Some of the acting could have been much better considering the actors caliber but the story-line makes up for the shortfall.

Without spoiling it for you, it will take balls to watch this film to the harsh, brutal and twisted end. Definitely not for the faint of heart.

Would love to see a second installment.
