Hi and welcome to this weeks Saturday Night Stay In Movie. Now most of you will know what this is about but I will explain to the people that don’t know what the Saturday Night Stay In Movie is about. It is quite simple, there is two types of people on a Saturday night the people that go out parting and the people that stay in for what ever reason, well this blog is for the second group of people on a Saturday night the ones that stay in for what ever reason. I suggest a movie that you can watch to pass the time, see didn’t I tell you it was simple.
Well this week we are going al the way back to 2001 for our Saturday Night Stay In Movie. It is The Last Castle. In my mind this is one of the most underrated movies ever (but that is just my opinion) It stars Robert Retford, James Gandolfini, Mark Ruffalo, and Delroy Lindo. Retford stars as Lieutenant General Eugene Irwin, a legendary solder who on his last mission disobeyed a direct order from the commander and chief ( the President) and got 8 of his men killed. He was sentence to 10 years in the Castle Military Prison. He just wanted to keep his head down and do his time but it becomes clare that he has and other battle to fight this time agents the warden of the person Col. Winter (James Gandolfini), who is ruling over the prison.
When this came out in 2001 it was meat with mixed reviews and only made 27 million at the world box office, but I think this was due to the fact that 9/11 had just happens a month earlier and the world was not sure what what was going to happen. I didn’t find this film until 2005 when I was looking for a movie to watch in my local extravsion I took a chance on it and Im glad I did I loved it. The acting was top class the story was good and the action was very good. Altho now that I look back at it there was one big hole in the story, How did the prisoners get all the weapons made and hidden while under the watch of the grads. Im sure it was filmed but ended up on the cutting room floor for what ever reason.
Over all this is a good movie that is well acted. I think you will enjoy it. Let me know what you think about it by leaving a comment in the comment box below.
