    • The Shark Tank: an inisde look at Felon


    A loving husband and father finds his promising future transformed into a waking nightmare when he's convicted of involuntary manslaughter after accidentally killing the burglar who broke into his home in this gritty prison drama starring Stephen Dorff and Val Kilmer. Wade Porter (Dorff) would have done anything to protect his family, and when they were threatened he did what any caring family man would have done. But somehow everything went wrong, and now Wade has been sentenced to spend three years in a maximum-security prison. It's a place where the rules of society have been all but forgotten, and in addition to sharing a cell with a notorious mass murderer (Kilmer), Wade somehow incurs the wrath of the sadistic head prison guard (Harold Perrineau). Now, in order to survive the series of vicious beatings orchestrated for the amusement of the guards, Wade realizes that in order to survive the block and get back to his family he will have to become the toughest felon of them all. But even if Wade does manage to live through this harrowing ordeal, what will be left of that loving family man once he's finally released back into civilized society? ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Two Thumbs Up


      The movie was pretty good. Val Kilmer has always been underrated, in my opinion, and he played another role very well. The situation was realistic and all of the resulting events were reasonable. This was not the typical 'jail' films that is usually filled with 'men in jail' situations and explicit language. This movie addressed not just the prisoners but also about how prison affects the family of the incarcerated person(s). Only a few things were left unresolved and left one wondering about. All in all, a good film.

      Very underrated prison drama. Dorff and Kilmer are excellent. The movie resembles Stallone's Lockup, but it is very good. Early Sony release, but video and audio are good.
