5.0 out of 5 stars A POWER-house movie!, 23 Dec. 2004
An early Burt Lancaster film, and what a film! i remember watching this when i was 11 years old, as it was one of my fathers favourites.
It tells the story of 6 inmates (of cell R17) serving time in a harsh prison, made all the more worse by a sadistic prison warden called Capt.Munsey, who beats the prisoners with "Brute Force" to get them to do his will. each of the prisoners of cell R17 has his story to tell of the "Outside" where life with their respective wives/girlfriends did them a bad turn, hence ending up in prison, and wanting to get back on the "outside"
The ending of the film is quite explosive and dramatic.
A must for film buffs, and an often overlooked Burt Lancaster gem!

5.0 out of 5 stars one of jack's best, 4 July 2002
This review is from: The Last Detail [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
this film is one of jack nicholson's best movies,made when he was at the top of the pile of box office hollywood actors-chinatown,one flew over the cookoos nest,five easy pieces.
the film is a "buddy" movie and has some memerable scenes- its the story of 2 navy officers taking a navy prisoner to jail but along the way they feel sorry for this guy and treat him to good time before he is jailed.a funny movie with a thought provoking scene at the end. great performances by otis young and a very young randy quaid add to jack's bullish,and foul mouth, but sympathatic character.
all in all a great movie to watch with couple of cans o' beer.
