Movie Info

Representing filmmaker John Frankenheimer's return to the small screen, this made- for- cable- TV reenactment of the 1971 Attica prison riots is jam-packed with political and sociological implications. Seen through the eyes of an idealistic young guard, this movie avoids casting the participants in either strictly good-guy or bad-guy roles.

Audience Reviews for Against the Wall

Fantastic film. Haven't seen it in years, but I remember being very fond of it. Leave it to HBO to come up with some of the most interesting work in the last 20 years or so.

Not one of Samuel L Jackson?s finer films, but not a bad storyline. Watchable, but not miss-able.
