one hell of a movie
16 October 2017 | by moatazbellahnaglaSee all my reviews

just great, crazy movie. not your usual prison movie. completely unpredictable. it feels like the writer was just trying to surprise himself. Vince was just extraordinary. great performance. enjoyed every minute of it. and the ending is crazy too. it's like the writer used a predictable story line to surprise the viewer. just crazy man.
