Prison is another all out Korean Action Film, that is a bit far fetched but extremely enjoyable. In fact Well Go USA has been releasing a few of action films from overseas and this may be my favorite yet.
Prison is the story of Song Yu-Gon a cop who was at one time nicknamed "The Grim Reaper" due to his violent nature. After a hit and run he is sent to one of the most violent prisons in the country. Unfortunately he helped populate a lot of that prison when he was a cop. Because if these he gets a handful of beatings in the beginning but nothing he can't handle.
He eventually meets Jung Ik-Ho an elite criminal who runs the prison and even has the warden in his pocket. He runs an assasination and heist syndicate. At night his men leave the prison and carry out these crimes. As there in prison they have the perfect alibi. Song joins Jungs gang and begins doing these crimes as well. Is he doing it to get back at the system, or is there another motive
With a powerful cast and rivating story Prison is a great watch for crime film and action film buffs. Violent action like fist fights, gang beatings, murders, and more set the dark tone that this film embraces. It's yet another great one to come out from Well Go USA. I recommend you go pick it up.
Overall 3.5 out of 5 Stars
