Oh, there will be blood. Plenty of it. Hell, the title pretty much promises it! Vince Vaughn stars as Bradley Thomas, a man who brings the pain as he brawls fellow inmates in a desperate murder plot to save his wife who’s being held hostage by a drug boss.
After playing a Los Angeles crime boss in the second season of True Detective, Vaughn returns to his darker inner self in Brawl in Cell Block 99, playing a bald boxer-turned-drug dealer with a cross tattooed on the back of his skull. You don’t fuck with this guy.
Of course, someone always does. A powerful drug kingpin is holding Vaugn’s wife hostage and threatens to kill their unborn child, unless he executes a murder contract behind bars. In order to do so, he has to break out of his medium-security block and into the maximum-security Red Leaf prison and from there into Block 99, which is dubbed “the prison within the prison.”
Will he succeed? Go and see the movie to find out. To get in the mood for blood and violence, check out the trailer below:
