Go to Jail, Do Not Pass Go

July 15, 2008


Val Kilmer’s new film, Felon, takes gritty to a new level. Kilmer plays a serial murderer shacked up in the joint with Stephen Dorf. Dorf’s character has been wrongly incarcerated after he defends his family from an intruder, and is inducted into the violent world of thuggery that is maximum security prison. He is faced with having his butt handed to him on a platter on a daily basis or turning into a violent gladiator. This film promises to be darker than your standard family fare, with an unusually edgy performance from Kilmer.
