Mean Machine

In the funniest scene in this mildly exciting sports-in-prison movie—a remake of The Longest Yard set in England—the stock psycho gets to pummel the stock idiot; they're demonstrating aggressive soccer moves for their teammates as their coach, a fellow inmate and fallen soccer star, looks on. The coach seems detached, but he's saving his strength: during the climactic match against a team of prison guards he'll have to make a huge leap in character development. Barry Skolnick directed a screenplay by Charlie Fletcher, Chris Baker, and Andrew Day; with Vinnie Jones and Jason Statham. 99 min.
