I saw this film recently for the very first time and I think it is excellent. I have seen quite a number of "recent" films that Morgan Freeman has been in and so it was interesting to see one of his earlier ones. The whole cast and production were at the top of their game and it was a fine example of brilliant cinema. It was also extremely well written and although the violence was not excessive it was necessary as it showed the brutality of prison life. It was a rare treat to see James Whitmore who I remember watching him in Gunsmoke.
I am glad I have seen it and I urge you to add it to your library because this calibre of film deserves to be there.
