Bradley (Vince Vaughn) is a man who wants to provide for his wife and look after his home. We understand that his wife recently had a miscarriage, and then Bradley loses his job. The two decide to try to make a baby again, and Bradley takes on a new responsibility as a drug dealer. Bradley is a strong-willed character who is willing to do whatever it takes to provide for and protect those he loves.
Unfortunately for Bradley, things turn for worse again. After a drug deal gone bad, Bradley is arrested and sent to prison. Once Bradley arrives in prison, an unknown gang kidnaps his pregnant wife. Bradley is told to murder a particular person in “Cell Block 99”, or else his child will end up being killed while still in the womb. Bradley switches gears and is now unstoppable, angry and passionate, willing to do whatever it takes to save his wife and future child.
Let’s talk about the acting. In the past, I have seen many films featuring Vince Vaughan, both comedic and dramatic. For me, the actor can be a bit hit and miss in regards to his performance. As for his performance in Brawl In Cell Block 99, it has completely changed my opinion on the actor forever.
Vince Vaughn is entirely different and unlike anything I have ever seen in his acting career. It’s also rather evident that he has trained hard for the role and given everything he has to this character. His character is incredibly confident, strong and rather powerful on-screen. Watching him throw fists alone will shock many.
The film is also creative in regards to how it looks and its style. Considering this film was introduced in 2017, the film’s tone and overall look is dirty and gritty, almost like something you would see in a Grindhouse cinemas from the ’70s. This film has gore and effects are rather Brutal, but it looks fake rather than the director trying to make the movie just gross and full of blood.
The film’s plots also progressed at a good pace, and I enjoyed seeing Bradley’s problems and challenge only grow as he journeyed to Cell Block 99. I was invested until the end, as I had to see the mysteries unfold. The film also had my support for Bradley as a character from the start.
Overall, I enjoyed this film. It is a film that feels like a gritty, Grindhouse cinema film. But I’m also excited to announce the film has an outstanding performance from Vince Vaughan which is like nothing I have seen within his career. This film is brutal to watch and naturally comes recommended for Mature adults.
