Lock Up is an awesome movie about one man's struggle to do his time, survive and keep his sanity in prison,. Sylvester Stallone stars as Leone, a prisoner who only has a short time left to serve before he can go home and live a happy life as a free man with his old lady. But as always things do not go exactly as planned. A late night transfer has Leone shipped to a maximum prison run by a warden (Donald Sutherland) who has an ax to grind with the star. He also meets a mean, tough and scary convict named Chink Weber (Sonny Landham) who wants to make his short stay in cooler as "pleasant" as possible But Leone has friends of his own in the big house like the young lifer Second Base (Larry Romano) fast talking Dallas (Tom Sizemore) and the big Eclipse (Frank McRae). His old lady (Darlene Fluegel) tries her best to find out why he was sent to one of the most toughest prisons in America. Can Leone survive the rest of his sentence without losing his cool? Why does the warden have a grudge against him? Will I enjoy this movie? Find out by watching Lock Up!
The 80's were huge for Sylvester Stallone. He was making a lot of money and making his studio happy. But the next decade wasn't so kind to the man, but he has over some box office busts to revive his career in the 21st Century. I highly recommend Lock Up because it's a very entertaining movie that I'm sure action fans will enjoy.
