a master piece+++++By davy from the boro from england , 11 Jun 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]not a big fan of tom selleck but boy did he prove he could act in this tale
of police corruptness.
having to learn the brutal prison
life at the same time as staying sane and coming to terms with what has actually happened to him selleck soons adjusts to prison life with a little help from a con (who leaves a great twist of fate at the end). this movie has been about years and still hits the spot, do yourself a big favour and rent it now.

An Innocent ManBy a customer , 29 Jun 2011The beginning of this film had to be the cheesiest i have seen in a film! Typical of Americans who have to do everything over the top! However i love Tom Selleck! This looks like it was probably a made for TV movie and i wouldnt have bothered with it had Tom not been in it, pretty good film though!

Hidden GemBy Nedvadead (86 reviews) from Ballymoney , 09 Dec 2009I took a gamble on this and 2 minutes in I thought I was going to be in for a long ride, but to my amazement I really enjoyed this movie.
RivetingBy Jackie from North Yorkshire, UK , 11 Aug 2006Jimmie Rainwood (Tom Selleck) is framed for a crime he didn't commit by two corrupt cops who raid the wrong address on a drug bust.
Committed to prison for six years, Jimmie learns fast that being Mr Nice Guy won't help him to survive the brutality of the prison and the unwanted attentions of the more unpleasant and dangerous occupants. With the help of fellow convict Virgil Cane, (F. Murray Abraham) Jimmy toughens up and does things he would never otherwise have dreamed of.
Outside, Jimmie's lovely wife (Laila Robins) is fighting the system, and trying to convince the immediate superior of the two cops that they are corrupt and have framed her husband, putting herself at risk when they find out she is making waves.
Paroled at the end of three years, Jimmy sets about setting a trap for the two cops, with help from his wife, the police officer, Virgil, and another ex convict.
There is plenty of action, and in the final scenes a violent and bloody punch up with the main Mr Nasty, (I wish I could have delivered a few myself!)
I found the film quite riveting, my only complaint being the regular use of the 'f' word, no doubt considered a necessity in the vocabulary of guttersnipes, I just wish they didn't use it so much in films these days.
Poor opening but soon improvesBy Alan Parr from Johnstone, Scotland , 03 Dec 2005Reasonable effort from Selleck & co. This is a watchable film, unlike some of the other reviews which go to extremes, I think this is OK, not great, but certainly not crap either. If you persevere beyond the cheesy opening scenes to the point where the cops become involved you will probably find this quite enjoyable. 4 stars
