A loving family man with a promising future, Wade Porter (Stephen Dorff) suddenly loses everything when he accidentally kills the burglar who broke into his home. Convicted of involuntary manslaughter, Wade is sentenced to spend the next three years inside a maximum security facility where the rules of society no longer apply. Forced to share a cell with a notorious mass murderer (Val Kilmer) and subjected to brutal beatings orchestrated by the sadistic head prison guard (Harold Perrineau), Wade soon realizes he's in for the fight of his life and must become the toughest Felon of them all if he's to survive the block. For what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. And in state prison, only the strongest will survive.



  • Sooo...

    The best Val Kilmer since his portayal of Doc in Tombstone. And Steven Dorff is amazing showing his depth of emotional range. This is a must see!!!
  • Garbage garbage garbage

    I was hoping for more and I guess if you have a room temperature IQ this would pass for a good movie. But trust me when the critics say this is a hackneyed prison movie they are spot on. Nothing but Hollywood spew trash
  • Most accurate portrayal of state prison

    By Nsudboro
    I downloaded this film because my fiancé spent 30 years in prison and said that this film was the most accurate portrayal of the experience of being inside. I don't suppose you could ask for a better accolade than that.
  • A good guide book for a white man going to prison

    If you're white, and are going to prison, watch this to be prepared
  • a very different movie

    By jwm2002
    Great performances, very engaging, teetering on claustrophobic at times. I initially caught it half-way through on cable and couldn't stop watching. Have since watched it several times.
  • Been there, done that

    I've been in the same shoes as Porter, and when I watched this movie, I found more than 100 ways I can relate and recollect feelings that were depicted in this film. This is by far the best EVER written and produced 'real life prison scenario' film of all time!
  • A 1st-Degree Classic!

    By DungeonDavey
    This movie is incredibly powerful. It makes you think about the meanings of life and family. A spine-tingling performance by Dorff is complimented by the likes of Val Kilmer in this instant hit. If you only have enough time left in your life to watch one movie, this should be it.
  • Great message

  • Felon

    By Panzerdudr

  • Way better than expected

    By ingleland
    this movie could have done well if it had been advertised. Good acting, very realistic. I did not expect this to be very good, i was renting it for the actors. They really made this movie. this is worth buying.
