Loved this movie
This was actually a really good movie, good storyline and good acting with the action scenes being very real. I personally would buy this a+
Its The Rock ..... But Theres a Message Attached!
This movie - based on a true story - orbits the contentious issue of Mandatory Minimium Sentencing for Drug Crimes. This film when coupled with the National Geographic Documentary "Inside Solitary Confinement" or even a couple of TV episodes of Miami SWAT demonstrates some the grossly abhorrent faults in nature of the US Justice system - over politicised, overarmed, overprivatised and overcommitted to a simplistic, unscientific approach to incarceration that has global record numbers of the wrong people locked up and progressively intitutionalised to the detriment of all. Even popular culture media such as Sons of Anarchy has seen fit to replicate the shadowy areas where Narco meets Terrorism and agencies are often confused as to where who are the Good and the Bad Guys. But on a simple entertainment value film premise it is a "The Rock" film and all that entails.
I would say this is a edge of your seat drama/action movie. I loved it
