Review
A definite must watch for all prison movie fans.This is one of the best prison movies I have watched so far. Felon has a good plot, good script and great
acting. No nonsense,no bullshit. It's been awhile since I saw Stephen Dorff acting in a decent well made movie.Val Kilmer was simply outstanding in this movie and so was Harold Perineau.The tenacity between Harold and Val's characters was good. What I really liked about Felon is the story and the cinematography. The cameraworks was pretty good and so was the editing. Of course kudos to Ric Roman for his direction. Simple yet effective to capture the viewer's attention. What you got to watch out for are the real life criminals who are acting in this movie. By the looks of some ,you just don't want them as your bunkmate cause for sure they are gonna fuck you up. Worth getting the dvd.
