3.0 out of 5 stars Fine Escape Movie December 20, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
Riot is a good action film about Jim Brown and Gene Hackman staging a riot in prison in order to allow a distraction so they can escape through underground tunnels. Brown and Hackman are great in this and the suspense of the last 30 minutes is killer! I rank this one up there with Escape From Alcatraz. A must see for all fans of escapism movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie July 19, 2011
By L. Ross
Riot was filmed on location at the Arizona State Prison in Florance, Arizona. Prison staff and inmates were used as extras during the filming. Warden Eyman played himself and did a great jod at it too! I have been waiting years for this to come to DVD. This is a great movie and well worth the price.

A lot of the movies I special order from Amazon don't live up to the memories I have from childhood. This one, however lives up to it and surpasses it. Gene Hackman does his usual excellent job as an untrustworthy, yet highly intelligent leader of a prison riot that is being used as a diversion for a planned prison break.

But it is the riveting, yet underplayed, performance of Jim Brown that makes this move an edge of the seat thriller. Originally trying to keep things from getting out of hand by protecting a brutal guard, he finds himself more and more named the leader and mastermind of the riot, first by the inmates, then, to his dismay, by the warden. (Played by a real warden who is every bit as tough and believable as you might expect.) It's not just a movie about a prison break, it's a movie about leadership and command and how they can be thrust upon men and women.

Why this move has never been replayed on cable in the last few decades escapes me, since the setting and story are timeless. As a matter of fact the only thing that gives away the date is a couple of police cars in one scene.

I won't ruin the ending, but believe me, you'll be surprised and not let down.
