Plot Summary

Robert Redford stars in this action drama as General Irwin, a respected three-star tactician whose career ends in disgrace when he is court-martialed and sent to The Castle, a maximum security military prison. Irwin quickly butts heads with the facility's autocratic warden, Colonel Winter (James Gandolfini), who runs his command with an iron fist, even killing prisoners when he deems it necessary. Irwin rallies his fellow convicts into a rag-tag army and leads them in a revolt against Winter, an action that the warden is ready to repel by violent means. Mark Ruffalo, Robin Wright Penn, and Delroy Lindo co-star in this Dreamworks production, the third feature film from one-time film critic Rod Lurie.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The themes that ring out most loudly in the end -- some men are just born leaders; others do best if they just conform -- are numbingly retrograde. – Stephanie Zacharek,, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Bizarre, confused, sanctimonious manure. – Michael Atkinson, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The Last Castle is not as simple as it looks, though its appeal is simple. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 18, 2002

Fresh: An intermittently witty script and Rod Lurie's assured direction triumph over the cornball factor. – Jan Stuart, Newsday, Jun 24, 2010

This is absolutely a fantastic movie its thrilling, its emotional, and the maker finally came up with a good thing to make a movie about. The scene at the end is especially good. To briefly describe this movie I would say it is about a general who faces challenges in destroying the cruel leader of the prison and triumphs in the end.


This movie was just great, do I need to say anymore.

No way

Redford's acting is good, yet the plot/ script is ..well just awful.Try the Shawshank Redemption, if your Looking for a movie w a prison story.
