Excellent movie not the usual prison movie
I was expecting another prison movie with just more rapes and violence, but i was pleasantly surprised. Val Kilmer is great and Stephen Dorff is great as well. It reminded me a little of The Shawshank redemption and an Innocent man. It shows how difficult life can be for someone whom lives a hardworking and honest life to enter the prison system filled with career criminals and gang members.
This movie encompasses friendships, hardships, and injustices. Even though the circumstances between the characters and the viewers are quite different, you don't feel that far removed from what the characters are going through.
