Agree with graybear1’s succinct comment on the film’s relentless violence and Bone Tomahawk (my rating was ★★★★) roots. The comedian Vaughn portrayed a captivating character and his feel-no-pain journey to the brawl reminded me of the half-brother of Lisbeth in the girl series who was also a hulking freak of nature with similar congenital analgesia disorder. An unusual grim antihero action drama in an unexpected place. Stay away if you are squeamish.

Mesmerizing performance by Vince Vaughn in a somewhat different type of role. The same director as Bone Tomahawk (also violent but good), who certainly knows how to get the best from his actors. Pretty good story, though you'll have to suspend belief for some parts. Quite violent so beware if that is something you avoid.

I like Vince, I didn't like this movie. Slow to start, then slow to end. I wonder why he was in it? The other reviews were right, very violent.

Extremely violent- SUPER violent. I'm not sure I can recommend this movie to others without warning them about how graphic the film is- because it is- very very, graphic. The movie is well made and well acted- it has the feel of a comic book mixed with an exploitation film. Interesting if you liked the director's first film " Bone Tomahawk ".

Super graphic and dark. Vince Vaughn is pretty good in this, it feels pretty low budget, but is still enjoyable. It is very graphic!!! Directed by the same director of 'Bone Tomahawk'. Which you should watch regardless.

WOW....Tripin. We felt like someone punched us in the gut. Vince pulled this off. Good watch. Not for the sentimental.

I also agree with the other comments. This is a very violent movie.

I agree with the other review. It had a 1970's grindhouse feel to it.

DO NOT watch this movie if you are eating, have a weak stomach or hate violence. The movie is a bit slow at the beginning but quickly moves forward. Very violent, stomach turning scenes in this movie. If you like grindhouse and/or revenge movies this one is for you.

The redleaf detention center is classified as a maximum-security facility. But there's another term I prefer... one that I think will give you a clearer picture. Minimum freedom. If you make trouble, your minimum freedom will get smaller. So small that it becomes microscopic.
Prisoners are expensive, and we're only too happy to help the state balance its budget by deploying some cheap lead.
