Need more of these from our British cousins!
I could understand not liking this movie if someone was expecting
Citizen Kane (and if you were, you should be flogged). For a straight
to video/cable movie, it had great prod. value, sharp dialogue, and a
great supporting cast of Guy Ritchie characters. Throw in some solid
football and you have a film to help you forget the worries of your
day. The commentary by the two Bobs alone makes it worthwhile. Jones is
good, but Statham steals the show in almost all of his scenes. Like the
original (The Longest Yard), it was made to entertain the audience, not
to provoke some deep introspective thought on the existence of God. See
it, rent it, buy it! If you cant discern the heavy British slang, throw
on the subtitles. If you don't have a DVD player, how in the hell are
you managing to read this?.

I'm not a fan of sport movies and I am not able to watch a soccer match without dozing off, but this one got me. A sympathetic cast I know from the Guy Richie's Snatch with lovely variety of British accents, this film features a lively plot, very funny quotes and a good physical humor, elaborate shots, and an interesting range of prison characters. No matter the characters are rather flat, this simplification I was willing to accept, since the story was so good. Even though I may have seen better prison movies, and even some that are similar in plot; the Mean Machine is unmatched in the rather distant, ironical view of the prison world, honoring fair-play and manly virtues. Moreover, I was very happy not to see any homosexual relationships among the prisoners, no matter the actual prison reality. (On the other hand, I liked the bookie, he had a style.) All in all, I enjoyed this film very much. Do not expect food for thought but rest assured this is not a dumb entertainment either.
Great film brilliant .

Should I stay for half-time, or leave before traffic gets bad?
"Mean Machine" was a crisp, "thud"-packed film that didn't fight with
