Upon first arriving at the prison, two separate prisoners make reference to a prison in Austria. They are most likely referring to Justice Center Leoben, which has been recognized as one of the "nicest" prisons in the world due to its modern and luxurious architecture and furniture. See more »
The final scene is obviously a mannequin. As stated in the trivia, the makeup effects were purposefully made to mimic "grindhouse" style, which often used low budget effects like this. See more »

Never a problem with Cuz.
Yeah I like that nigger. Or is it - is it "nigga" with an A at the end, when you're saying it nice?
Don't think someone like you can say that word any way polite.

I have to admit I didn't expect much of a movie with a title like Brawl in Cell Block 99. It's not the most appealing title, that's the least we can say. But it was actually a good action movie with some pretty hardcore violent scenes. Some people will find them a bit harsh to watch, but I didn't mind it at all, I even applaud it. It's gore but also funny to me. So if you read negative reviews about this movie it will come from people that can't cope with violent scenes like in this movie. The story isn't bad at all, even if it was a bit predictable. But since it is an action movie I was not expecting a difficult story. A good revenge story, nothing beats making your own justice. Vince Vaughn has the physique to play his character. His fighting scenes might be a bit slow but they fitted his character perfectly. So if you like me like hardcore revenge movies you will probably like this one as well.
