The Condemned

A great, intense, kill or be killed movie with a possitive hidden message within the plot. This movie includes a lot of blood and gruesome deaths. But if you were to stick 10 Death Row inmates on an island and forced them to kill eachother to ensure a hopeful freedom and a huge cash prize, what would you really expect? A tea party and a game of Red Rover? Nay I say.

This title has:

Too much violence
Great messages
Great role models
not rated for age
