Felon is certainly not a perfect movie but it is a generally good, if disturbing, film with an important message about America's out of control police-judicial-prison-industrial complex. The film was made in a New Mexico prison and was inspired by actual events in the California prison system in the 1990s.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

good... but sad and scary too. too much fighting

Amazing film! Its heart breaking what happens to him in the beginning but the pen is no joke! It just shows how crooked some cops can be and how the father will DO ANYTHING to protect his family and be with them once again. Very very good from beginning to end!
