Time Out says

Made for TV, this is part gritty prison movie, part equally gritty fairytale (sympathetic killer obsessively runs to Olympic standard). It's generally upbeat without being remotely wimpish or excessively naive: the walls don't simply fall, and the optimism has to seep through a quasi-documentary context of racism and violence. It's really well acted by pros and inmates, crafted to manipulative perfection; and it beats Rocky every which way. See it, be suckered, be entertained.
