Law abiding airplane mechanic, Jimmie Rainwood has his life turned upside down one fateful night. Two bent cops accidentally bust into Jimmie's house rather than the one up the street, and assuming him to be the drug dealer they're after they shoot him. To cover their tracks they frame him as a drug dealer and Jimmie gets a major prison sentence. Struggling to survive in prison Jimmie sets about applying his resourcefulness to the situation whilst his devoted wife Kate attempts to get him freed. Fellow inmate Virgil Cane (F. Murray Abraham) tries to keep Jimmie sane, but can he get justice?

The great part of this film was in the prison when he has to take out one of the prison inmates, and his friendship with a fellow inmate played by F.Murry Abraham, who helped him get justice.
This film will have you on the edge of your seat. The good thing is the Blu-ray it is region free so will play on uk dvd players.
While incarcerated, Jimmie must thrust aside inhibitions and learn how to literally kill to survive. He does this under the tutelage of fellow con and self-admitted criminal, Virgil Cane (F. Murray Abraham), also put away by Parnell and Scalise, though they beat up Cane's girlfriend during the process of the arrest. Eventually, Rainwood is let out on parole after three years. Returning home, he and Kate continue to be oppressed by the two crooked cops, and Jimmie falls back on his hard-won survival skills to break himself and his wife free.Read more ›
Most of the film is about the life of intimidation and persecution Rainwood suffers in prison – until he is provoked into seeking retribution for the abuse he suffers. I found this movie unsatisfactory and unconvincing, though the grim realities of prison life are stark enough. First, his very sweet wife Kate (Laila Robins) doesn’t seem to have much idea about getting a decent lawyer to defend her husband. Secondly, I would be appalled if the police really did make so little effort to establish the true facts of a case against an upright citizen with no record of involvement with drugs. I certainly wouldn’t want to watch this again.
Saw this film years ago but the story is one that returns to your mind. Makes you think that it could just as easily 'happen to you' - albeit more likely ( one hopes!) in the U.S. than in the U.K.
The injustice really affects you and you can totally understand why the Tom Selleck character has to 'change' just to survive and thus becomes the person he does.
For some reason my husband had never seen this film and so we settled down to watch it together on a cold wet Spring evening and both thoroughly enjoyed it.
Doesn't appear dated and all the acting is superb - even the baddies (corrupt Police Officers) whom you absolutely
Great acting, as usual, from Tom Selleck & all the other actors.. so for me, a great film marred by constant awful language.
