Ricky gets arrested for murder and enter one of the meanest prisons in the country. It’s privatized and run by some of the most violent and greedy bastards in the universe. Ricky needs to use all of his ability to fight both the inmates and the evil warden and his companions. Thank God he knows the skills of martial arts.

What a totally crazy and entertaining gore-fest. Based on a comic book, this flick works great on its own. It’s over the top violent, it’s so bloody you have to take a shower after you’ve seen it, and it’s so much cool fight-scenes you double-flip out of the couch afterwards. The great Fan Siu Wong fits his role beautifully. Some scenes are maybe too “out there”, but still one hell of a ride. Watch it!
