After the death of his brother, Mick travels to America to seek Justice. Wrongly convicted of extortion and attempted murder, Mick is sent to Pleasant Hill Penitentiary's notorious death block 13. Seething with revenge after discovering the truth behind his brother's death, Mick's rage ignites an explosive riot as he makes a daring escape from death block 13.
They got a good lookalike (to the OG Charles Bronson)! They got a good premise, they even had a prison warden that reminded me of Cynthia Rothrock, and a few faces I know, and Mick grows in character the longer the movie progresses - even if his acting's not great, but ultimately the crappy special effects are what ruined this for me.
Why they had to do it like that?! The guns looked real, the blood looked alright too, the explosions though... oh man.
But it does go full circle in a good way. They had some punchy one-liners reminiscent of Bronson's old classics, and a tough as nails main character who does him justice. It's still worth a watch. Still entertaining.
I hope I see Robert Bronzi in more roles. Love seeing his presence, even if the movie was subpar. Just need to hone the acting, and raise the budget.
Or do more with less, like in the old days. Bronson all the way.
rated 3/5: not bad
