At the end of the film, when Jacob/Money receives the letter from his son, it's addressed to 'CA Rehabilitation Center' in Norco, California. Indeed, there is a California Rehabilitation Center in Norco; however, it's mainly a rehabilitation center for non-violent, low-level drug addicts--definitely NOT a facility where a hardened, gang-connected, violent criminal would ever be housed.

I enjoyed this movie
It showed a lot of potential with the premise, but it spends most of its time hovering between wanting to be a smart character study of how a businessman can become a ruthless gangster through prison, and a violent action/thriller that focuses on gangs and how they operate. By not fully committing to either, some potency is lost. But is it bad? Not at all. In fact, with a captivating central performance of a complex character from Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and enough interesting ideas to hold your attention (particularly when it comes to the effects and inner-workings of a prison), it's still pretty entertaining.
