| Friggin wicked.
If you are reading this, chances are you have heard lots about this film. If you can find it, buy it. It will be worth every penny, I promise you. The gore in this one is so over-the-top awesome it makes "Friday the 13th" look like "Bambi."

Blood and guts abound in this revenge/action film where a dude gets wrongfully imprisoned, then punished for speaking and acting out against atrocities going on inside the walls. Ricky is definitely one of the coolest heroes of all time. With his super human strength, knack for ripping out people's guts, and compassionate nature, he proves unstoppable against an army of corrupt prison guards, mindless gangsters and bosses, and every single person deserving of a broken back inside the prison.

You'll find yourself rooting for Ricky more than you rooted for Tim Robbins' character in "The Shawshank Redemption." Yea, it's that cool. See it as soon as you can. And like I said, don't rent it or borrow it...buy it. You're gonna want to watch this one repeatedly.

9 out of 10, kids.
