Review of Brawl in Cell Block 99

Whenever I look for books, there is always one that has an odd title and a great cover that catches my eye. Usually these books are pulpy as hell with a grindhouse edge. These books also tend to have some of the most despicable characters you will ever read with even the "heroes" being not very good people. This is like those books and I loved it. It's a brutal movie with the violence being depicted as more bone breaking than over the top gore. Zahler really helps you feel every punch and bone break in this. He does a great job too of helping you feel the isolation of the prison and the loneliness Bradley feels. Even when the setting looks grimy and disgusting, you can't help but feel the atmosphere and be captivated with what is on screen. This too is probably one of the best things Vince Vaughn has done in years. It feels like he is now entering that stage of a comedian's career where they start to do more drama work and character actor work, and so far he is nailing it. The supporting cast is good with Udo Kier and Don Johnson being charismatic performers. If I have one complaint it's that I wish we had gotten a little more with the main antagonist as he just feels like a typical cartel boss. But I highly recommend checking this out as it is one of my favorites this year.
