Reviews in German: "Ein sehr harter, aber ausgezeichneter Film um die Revolte in einem amerikanischen Zuchthaus. Scharfe Kritik an den unmenschlichen Behandlungsmethoden. Beklemmend, wie das Misstrauen zwischen den Häftlingen geschürt wird." (Falter-Kinos München)
"Höchst eindrucksvoll und mit dramatischen, fast schon dokumentarischen Bildern vermittelte Willkür im Knastalltag" (tele)
