Kyle LeBlanc (Van Dammage on fine form) is working in Russia when his wife is murdered. Once the killer is set free on a technicality, Kyle is incensed and takes the law into his own hands - gunning him down. Things don't get better for our hero as he's sent to a prison where a sadistic warden amuses himself by putting on fights between the inmates. As Kyle slides deeper and deeper into the maddened culture of his surroundings, his humanity is tested to the limit and with real screentime development (which is a first for this subgenre), he's forced to reckon with not only his animalistic nature, but also the last remaining semblance of peace within himself. Before its too late.
This SHOULD be a dreadful film: Its direct to video, has a low budget and a story we've seen a million times before. But lo and behold, its truly not. Fused with an amazingly honest performance from Van Dammage and tight as a drum direction by Lam - the film makes you actually feel the plight of the character. Van Dammage is both honest and raw (way before his standout turn in 'JCVD') and one cannot help but feel for his characters' demise as the film progresses... Kudos also to the supporting cast who add layers to Van Dammages' tormented hero. Eric James Virgets and Jorge Alvarez's screenplay evokes the lean masculinity of Walter Hill and Sam Pekinpah - yet never shortchanges the audience with just another 'Kickboxer' clone.Read more ›
After Van Damme is locked up in a Russian prison for the vigilante killing of his wifes murderer he must fight for his life and his sanity. A failed suicide bid inside leaves Kyle (Van damme) only one option but to carry on his battle against corrupt wardens, potential rapists and tough opponents in the prisons fighting tournament. The fighting is great and intense but there is no fancy high kicks (martial arts fans will be dissapointed)and slow motion shots, infact the fighting takes a back seat to the story which moves along at a fast pace with little time to get bored. Overall brutal reality, a good ending and a superb performance from van Damme make this a movie to enjoy by die hard fans and anyone else who fancies watching a tense thriller.
Brief synopsis: A man must survive a prison where hardened criminals battle to the death for the wardens' entertainment.
Picture quality: 4/5
This Blu-ray had pretty good quality in my opinion. No use of DNR that i could see. Strong colours and details. Nothing wrong with it.
Audio quality: 4/5
I remember the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 audio track was good.
The plot is simplicity extreme, Van Damme stars as Kyle LeBlanc, who along with his wife is residing in Russia due to work commitments. His wife is raped and murdered and Kyle is aghast as the Russian courts free the culprit on technicalities and bribery sweeteners. He's not having that so promptly guns down the man and gets sent to a hell hole prison for life. Here violence and sexual assault are the order of the day, with the governor happy to put on brutal fights to the death purely for his, and his friends, entertainment. Kyle is not a violent man but he's forced to become violent just to survive.
Yes it's a pretty formulaic as it sounds, you could run thru about ten prison based movies and find the best bits of them used in here. But it does work because of Van Damme's character.Read more ›

I used to love this movie so much. I.ve bough it recently to refresh my memory. Really good moviePublished 11 months ago by Jonathan
Very little actual martial arts here, which makes little sense given Van Damme is the star. Fight scenes are few and far between, consisting only of bareknuckle boxing. Read morePublished 18 months ago by HairyBumMan
Fans of Jean-Claude Van Damme will not be disappointed with the actor's fine performance in this gritty prison drama set in Russia. Certainly worth the price of admission.Published 22 months ago by William Mitchell
