This collection of cliches accomplishes the almost unthinkable by bringing the prison genre to a new low.

Nightmarishly structured, the film takes half-hour before Tom Selleck’s everyman, Jimmie Rainwood, gets wrongfully framed by two corrupt vice cops (David Rasche and Richard Young). Then he spends more than an hour in stir before he gets released to seek vengeance on the duo in one of the more absurd finales in memory.

In between, Jimmie gets a lesson in prison survival from the cell-wise Virgil (F. Murray Abraham), learning to do the previously unthinkable to survive the hellish conditions.
