Overview

Love blossoms in the even the most cold and unforgiving of places in this frank and startling prison drama from German filmmaker Joerg Amndreas. When young Dennis is arrested for credit card fraud, he is soon convicted of the crime and sent to serve his sentence at a maximum-security penitentiary. As each bleak day gives way to the next and hope quickly fades, Dennis' only reprieve from the pain of incarceration is the loving glance of a handsome, muscular inmate named Mike. As Dennis and Mike struggle to find time for their sexually charged rendezvous, the all-seeing eyes of the voyeuristic prison guards bear witness to their erotic escapades, and the warden shows sympathy for romantically involved prisoners who seek solace in sharing a cell.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Although it has its admirers who seem to believe it as something credible to say about gay relationships, Locked Up is really nothing more than a soft porn feature. It's possible that the filmmakers themselves were indeed aiming for something a little higher, as Locked does have a tad more plot and story than the typical porn film; indeed, director Jorg Andreas manages to imbue the film with some moments that feel genuinely romantic, albeit in a manipulative manner. But ultimately whatever higher ambitions may have been intended get lost in the need to provide "hot" scenes. These scenes, of course, satisfy no one: they are too intrusive and explicit to appeal to those who are here for a real romance, but not graphic enough for those who simply want to see sex in its rawest form. The dialogue is horrible, the plotting is slipshod and the film looks as cheap as it probably is. The cast certainly looks good, but their acting is poor (at best).
