Storyline

Copper Jack Stone purposefully orchestrates a bank robbery in order to be thrown into prison with the notorious Russian kingpin Balam. Balam is more than just a mob criminal; he's a very cunning and dangerous lord who controls the police force from behind bars. Balam lives in prison as a cover for his real power, which is King of the city. His cell is a lavish private room built specifically for him, inaccessible to most in the depths of the prison structure. Even the warden fears venturing into his area of the prison. However, even surrounded by his loyal henchmen and guards in his sectioned off fortress, Balam doesn't know Jack is coming for him to avenge his family, who Balam murdered in cold blood. Balam is tough... but Jack is tougher. Written by VMI Worldwide

Terrible, low grade DVD action film
17 February 2016 | by davideo-2See all my reviews

STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning

Officer Jack Stone (Matthew Reese) was part of an undercover sting to bust a mob kingpin, that went tragically wrong and ended with his wife being murdered. An act of retribution puts him inside, where he has an ideal chance to strike back at responsible crime lord Balam (Chuck Liddell.) But an introduction to seemingly harmless janitor William (Dolph Lundgren) leads him to become part of something much bigger.

If Dolph Lundgren has sway nowhere else, he at least has it in the world of the DVD action film, and so his appearance on the front cover of this latest prison based entry might attract some fans of this type of fare (i.e. me!) But it's nothing but a con, when he actually occupies such minimal screen time, saving face from being part of this cheap looking, low grade, poorly shot, unexciting bore fest.

The main hero of the piece is Matthew Reese, a man who might have had a career in action films thirty years ago, but in these days of CGI, can only make do in tat like this. Liddell has presence as the villain, but the lacklustre script leaves him without any menace at all. As for Dolph, his role has some deeper significance, as a relic of time gone by, his character ambling about much like himself, remembering the days when you could make a career out of films like this.

Definitely not a Riot, or even a commotion. It struggles to even be a mini scuffle. *
