Breathtaking, Mind-blowing, Unbelievable!!!
2 August 2018 | by therealjaysmokeSee all my reviews

The fact that this is a true story just gives me the shivers! Well played by Joe Cole, the directing and casting, top notch. I actually thought they were real prisoners until I found out that they all were ex-cons. The acting was that good. One of the few movies I didn't want to end! Very very good stuff.
