Trivia

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 »

Goofs

When Bradley is lying on the floor after the first assault on correctional officers, his head changes from lying on his shoulder to lying directly on the concrete floor, between the time a guard is directed to "administer justice" until the guard steps on Bradley's head. See more »

Quotes

Warden Tuggs: 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.

Vince Vaughn is great as the straight talking tough guy forced into an impossible position
16 October 2017 | by silverlight-91083See all my reviews

Vince Vaughn does a great job of portraying a no-nonsense tough guy who doesn't mince his words in this prison drama. I was surprised how much i enjoyed this movie. His character brings to mind characters similar to what Charles Bronson, Clint Eastwood and the like have played. There is a real intensity about this movie and his performance that is lacking in many action films these days. The supporting cast were good also but i thought Vince Vaughn totally carried this movie, which could have been way worse but for what he brought to it. Highly recommended for fans of old school movies of this genre.
