Cell Block Girls

The movie begins with four female convicts breaking out of a prison in Florida and in an effort to outrun the police venture deep into the swamp. Once there they encounter a redneck who has escaped from prison five years earlier and sometimes works for a mobster by the name of "Mr. Cabrini" (Ted Cassidy). As luck would have it Cabrini just happens to be involved in a drug deal and in order to exchange the heroine for the money has to go into the swamp with two of his men and the courier. When they get to their destination they discover the four escaped women and things begin to get real complicated after that. Now rather than reveal any more of this film and risk ruining it for those who haven't seen it I will just say that this movie had a good premise but the execution was lacking in several key areas. For starters the character development was extremely poor and this resulted in confusion concerning the identities of several of the female characters involved. Additionally, the movie wasn't edited very well and because of that it had a very choppy feel to it. In short this film could have definitely used some improvement and I have rated it accordingly. Below average.
