It's a good movie. Tom Selleck and F.Murray Abraham delivers strong performances.
If you like prison-piece like this one, you better check Michael Mann's Jericho Mile with Peter Strauss, Brian Dennehy and Roger E.Moseley. A tough drama about a marathon champion locked up in Folsom caught up in a struggle with the penitentiary administration. It is Michael Mann's first piece and it is an unbelievable achievement.
