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.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: The Last Castle is well acted and rousing for the most part, but the story can't stand up to close scrutiny.
