Fairly average prison movie...
29 December 2015 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

While "Wrath of Cain" (aka "Caged Animal") is not the best of prison movies, it should be stated that there are far worse prison movies out there.

Story-wise then director Ryan Combs didn't really manage to procure a particularly outstanding story. The storyline is quite straight forward, running on autopilot most of the time. There was a single surprise towards the ending of the movie, but other than that it was linear and scripted.

Now, I can't claim to be particularly familiar with life in prison, the code of conduct in prisons or the lingo used, but as a movie, "Wrath of Cain" was entertaining enough for what it turned out to be.

Ving Rhames seemed to be running on autopilot throughout the movie, and I think he didn't really put in all that he could have. But in overall, the performances in the movie were adequate all-round given the genre.

Not an outstanding movie by any milestone, but it is still entertaining enough for a single viewing, just don't get your hopes up too high. If you enjoy prison movies you might get something out of "Wrath of Cain".
