Brawl in Cell Block 99 (2017) Brawl in Cell Block 99 (2017)

Best movie I’ve watched in a long while. Best thing I’ve seen Don Johnson in since Miami Vice. Best thing I’ve seen Vince Vaughn in, period. A violent movie where violence is done right. No time wasted on button-pushing, manipulative cliche characters. No bullshit.
