Plot outline: When three star General Irwin is transferred to a maximum security military prison, its warden, Colonel Winter, can't hide his admiration towards the highly decorated and experienced soldier. Irwin has been stripped of his rank for disobedience in a mission, but not of fame. Colonel Winter, who runs the prison with an iron fist, deeply admires the General, but works with completely different methods in order to keep up discipline. After a short while, Irwin can feel Winter's injustice towards the inmates himself. He decides to teach Winter a lesson by taking over command of the facility and thus depriving him of his smugly position. When Winter decides to participate in what he still thinks of as a game, it may already be too late to win. Summary written by Julian Reischl {} Redford stars as three-star General Irwin, a renowned military tactician, who has been court-martialed and sentenced to a maximum security military prison run with an iron fist by its warden, Colonel Winter (James Gandolfini). Winter can't help but respect the once-legendary general, but that respect turns to hostility as Irwin defiantly confronts the warden on his methods. Their confrontation escalates into war when the general organizes his fellow inmates into an army to take over the prison. Summary written by {}
Comment: STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead*Avoid At All Costs TLC had all the ingredients to be a big major Hollywood release.As it is,it was only ever a limited release film.A flop,in fact.How could this be?Well,all the ingredients are there,but the recipe is all wrong,so to speak.First-and-foremost,Robert Redford is simply too old to be taken seriously as an action hero anymore.In Britain's terms,he's of pensioner age,and it only shows a swelling up in the Hollywood market that somebody much younger could not be chosen to head the cast.The rest of the cast,especially a sincere James Gandolfini,are generally pretty good,but Delroy Lindo is wasted as the commanding superior.The film is also overlong,and at times seems unsure whether it wants to actually be an action thriller or a Shawshank Redemption esque prison drama.**
