Storyline

A maximum-security prison inmate named Louis, who, 24 years after committing a violent crime as a young man, finds himself on the cusp of release from prison, facing an uncertain future on the outside. He encounters Beech, a newly incarcerated young man who offers him much needed-friendship, though it's not without unfortunate complications. The younger inmate echoes of his older counterpart, stirring instincts within Louis that had long been buried beneath a tough exterior. Written by Tribeca Film Festival

When you got to comfortable with one aspect, you forget the main one.
2 March 2019 | by ariqakbarSee all my reviews

For me o.g wasn't that bad. Almost all of this movie power come from it's background. Which is pretty amazing. I mean you can feel so much strong grip from something that only tell by story not scene. But, they look like wasn't utilize this power and decide to go easy on the main story movie.

They put a tiny laugh in this movie, and it's fun to have that in this kind of movie. The visual sometime may surprise you.

The hand wall scene was unnecessary for me.
