Brawl In Cell Block 99 – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Brawl In Cell Block 99 is an insane grindhouse prison film with a career best performance by the often renowned to phone it in Vince Vaughn.  It’s super violent, super brutal yet super fun and sits well in a year that has seen some amazing direct to streaming or direct to DVD films like Shot Caller and Wheelman.  If you like brutal action prison films then Brawl In Cell Block 99 is certainly for you.

Best Bit: Vince Vaughn

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: Bone Tomahawk, Shot Caller, Wheelman

Shot Caller – A Quick Capsule Review

Shot Caller – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Shot Caller is a genuinely great direct to DVD thriller that happily dispenses with a  lot of prison and DTV action cliches, instead utilising it’s impressive cast (including The Walking Dead Star Jon Bernthal, Lake Bell and Jeffery Donovan to name but three) to deliver a taught, tense thriller that delivers some hardcore violence and some brutal story choices.  This is a top notch direct to DVD effort that, if there was any justice in the world, would be playing on a big screen over some of the tat thats been out over the past year.  A must see.

Best Bit: Showdown
