Ex-football star Paul Crewe (Burt Reynolds) ends up in a prison run by sadistic sports-nut Warden Hazen (Eddie Albert). Strong-armed into forming an inmate football team, Crewe manages to instill an esprit de corps previously lacking in the prisoners' lives. Besides, they now have the chance to beat the guards' football team, headed by the hissable Capt. Knauer (Ed Lauter). Hazen orders Crewe to throw the match; otherwise, Crewe will never get the pardon he's been promised. The football game that follows consumes nearly a third of the picture.

Before getting mucked up in a series of 1980's celluloid trash, Burt Reynolds proved he was a solid dramatic actor with a series of great parts, this one right before re-teaming with Robert Aldrich and co-star Eddie Albert, in HUSTLE. Be you a football fan or not, this is a winner of a film. A great (familiar) cast and witty dialogue that scores on every series.
