Felon (2008)

Written By Awir Aditya on Saturday, August 22, 2009 | 9:48 AM


Genre: Drama/Crime

Starring: Stephen Dorff, Van Kilmer, Marisol Nichols

A simple American man Wade Porter (Dorff) is living the a simple American life with his simple American wife Laura (Nichols). Their simple life becomes thoroughly complicated overnight, when Wade accidentally kills a burglar in their house and is sentenced to prison. Still trying to be the simple American man doesn't help him, when he gets involved in messy feuds with his inmates and is wrongly framed for incidents. His prison term gets extended, which makes things even more difficult for his wife and child. His cell-mate John Smith (Kilmer) is serving a life sentence, and decides to help Wade get his normal life back at the cost of his own. The movie tries to show the happenings within a prison, and how innocent people get dragged in the murderous and crime-filled life of inmates cutting their sentence within. Van Kilmer looks unidentifiable with his buffed physique and thick beard which suits him. At some point it felt as if the movie was trying to replicate a Shawshank Redemption in a slightly different manner, which to an extent it did achieve, but failed to generate the impact that the historical movie had created.

Rating: 7.0/10
