When the prison bus backs away from Redleaf, there is no audible back-up signal. A vehicle this size would certainly be equipped with a loud beeping alarm, as required by United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations. See more »
I suspect that Amnesty International would frown upon the contents of this room. Cell Block 99 is the prison within the prison. You will stay down here until you're sorted out. Or carried out.

A cut version was prepared for broadcast purposes in the UK. 44 seconds of "stronger, sadistic violence and injury detail" were removed to secure a 15 certificate. According to the BBFC, it reduces the level and detail of violence across the two climactic sequences and removes an earlier arm break. The theatrical and video releases are uncut with an 18 certificate. See more »
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.
