Editorial Reviews

Avery had it all: his beautiful girlfriend, Krista, a young son and a full scholarship ahead of him. But in the blink of an eye, it was all taken away. What started as a night out with his buddies ended with the shooting of a cop and Avery behind bars. He's innocent, but that doesn't matter in a place that has its own set of rules. As Krista works to prove his innocence, Avery struggles to survive the day-to-day hardships of prison life. In the tradition of "Oz" comes a story of what it takes to get by in the toughest place on earth, starring Richard T. Jones (The Wood), Gabriel Casseus (Black Hawk Down), De'Aundre Bonds (3 Strikes), Melissa De Sousa (The Best Man), Bill Nunn (Spider-Man) and rap superstar Master P.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good film March 1, 2004
Lockdown is the kind of film that makes you rethink who your friends are!!! Avery is aman who has a bright future ahead of him, and in the blink of an eye it's all taken from him when he ends up in prison for a crime he does not commit. The film touches on loyalty, keeping the faith, doing the right thing, and a strong will to survive. Master P being the executive producer and an "actor" in the film had me wondering should I bother watching this. I'm a big fan of Richard T. Jones, so I gave the movie a chance. I'm glad I did. The movie had a solid plot, and solid acting. If you are a fan of Oz, you will enjoy the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated August 19, 2003
By KeeKee
This movie was great! It depicted jail life to the fullest. I always tell my son, that by being with the wrong crowd or being in the wrong place at the wrong time can get you in a world of trouble and this movie just backed me up to the fullest. The movie is a must see for older teens and adults alike. It will definately make you think twice about wanting to be a thug or having a "go-hard" attitude. Please see this movie

4.0 out of 5 stars a no limit film.........that actually has something 2 say December 19, 2005
My brother put my on to this movie.Considering the fact that I don't really care for no limit films...thats pretty amazing.Anyway, I was honestly shocked at how good this flick was.Great acting? good script?...sorry, I'm still bugging over the whole no limit film thing. Damn good movie. But this seriously is not for those with weak stomach.It's probably as realistic as the mpaa would allow a movie to be without branding it with the dreaded nc-17 rating. Unfortunately, I've seen stuff like this with my own eyes so this movie kind of f'd me up a little bit. But don't be turned off by it's graphic nature. Just take a few deep breaths and give it a chance. you won't be sorry.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad movie! March 3, 2006
This was not a bad movie. Seeing Master P on the cover made it hard to rent this movie but it was pretty entertaining. Although only half of scenes in this movie were believable. First of all, it was a little hard to fathom the fact that Avery (Richard T. Jones) was an avid swimmer and was pursuing it as a career, but on the other hand it was good to see because it is different than the typical story of the brotha using football or basketball as an avenue to get out of the hood. Second, the way they ended up in jail had to be the worse timing in history, the worse judgment made by a dude in the back seat in history, the worse timing by a dumb dog in history and the worse reaction by anyone who owned a dumb dog that got shot by a cop. The way they went to jail just made them look pretty dumb and made me cringe. And for the people with weak stomachs, there might be some material in here that might make you look away, like the male on male sex abuse, and the shankings were pretty graphic. Other than that, it was entertaining, somewhat realistic movie and the acting was pretty good even Percy Miller wasn't bad. Oh, Can't for get ya boy Clifton Powell, he was outstanding in this one, but heck that's no surprise!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars shocking but brutetly true April 26, 2004
this film is by no means lame.90% of the stuff shown in this movie is true.i seen this on the shelf and thought another jail movie.but it was no ordinary jail movie,with brillant acting by all, this jail movie would be one of the best ive seen.with master p and a short apperence by sticky fingers at the start just gave it even more edge.avary had a great swimming future ahead of him untill the revenge of a sour drug dealer(sticky fingers)finds avary and two close buddys behind bars for a murder they did not its down to survival of the fittest.with a savage rape happening to one of the three in the first ten minutes of being lockdown.this told me i was in for a good movie.but it turned out to be great.a must see.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shocked November 28, 2004
By Zane
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am not so much shocked at the content of this film as I am at how much I enjoyed watching it. True, it was brutal and gave a side of prison life that you would not wish on your worst enemy. What I enjoyed about it was the cast and the unique storyline, something that is usually not found in this type of film. I originally saw a screening of the film at the American Black Film Festival in Miami a few years ago and was equally as captivated with it when I saw it again on DVD. I would suggest this film for those who want a peek into the hard reality that so many live every day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underestimated August 12, 2003
By KeeKee
This movie was great from beginning to end. It is definately a must see/own. It depicted a real life at its best, and gave me a real image into what jail would be like. I took my 16 year old to see the movie, and it really gave him something to think about.
