Penitentiary (R2) in March

Arrow Films have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Penitentiary on 9th March 2009 priced at £12.99 RRP. Jamaa Fanaka directs this film which is a combination of blaxploitation, prison drama and social commentary.

Martel Gordone ( Leon Isaac Kennedy) is a Hitchhiker who gets into a fight with a pair of bikers over a prostitute. One of the biker dies and Martel finds himself in prison with the moniker ‘ too sweet’ because of his love of candy bars. Soon, he is a hardened but pragmatic inmate who joins the prison boxing team in an effort to secure an early parole. Standing in his path however is ‘Half Dead Johnson’, a member of the prison’s most violent gang.

There are no extras other than the original trailer.
