Critic Reviews of "Felon"AV ClubOctober 18, 2008
It's still white-knuckle tense, and held together by dozens of small, well-observed moments.VarietyJuly 21, 2008
Stephen Dorff's powerhouse perf as an ordinary Joe trapped behind bars with warring ethnic psychopaths propels "Felon" well ahead of its expose/exploitation brethren while still avoiding the pious learning curves of Frank Darabont's prestige prison dramasNewsdayJuly 18, 2008
Tough, brutish prison drama with an easy windup, but good acting and an uncompromising take on the prison system.New York TimesJuly 18, 2008
Written and directed by Ric Roman Waugh, and filmed at the New Mexico State Penitentiary near Santa Fe, Felon is one of the most realistic prison films ever made.New York PostJuly 18, 2008
A good cast and disciplined direction add some distinction to Ric Roman Waugh's Felon, which is basically the old tale about an innocent man corrupted by a stay in prison.New York Daily NewsJuly 18, 2008
A subplot involving corrupt guards makes the movie even duller than the score that sounds like a rusty squeezebox.Urban CinefileNovember 14, 2008
The plot expands and gets more complex as the story progresses, and the dramatic tension ratchets upReel Film ReviewsOctober 03, 2008
...establishes itself as a gritty, thoroughly compelling prison drama that rarely relies on the various tropes of the genre.NewsBlazeAugust 01, 2008
Dorff, who was last spotted as a scary sexual sadist in Shadowboxer, gives a mesmerizing performance evolving from stunned civilian to brutalized inmate and dangerous prison thug, then transforming into a tested man who rediscovers his own humanity.Boxoffice MagazineJuly 18, 2008
Felon ventures outside the prison walls so often that the audience doesnâ(TM)t get a prolonged sense of the claustrophobia of confinement; the rage being displayed actually dispels the sense of isolation and boredom.TV GuideJuly 18, 2008
Kilmer and Dorff, who was also an executive producer, immerse themselves in difficult roles and the film's overall air of social commitment will surprise viewers drawn in by its exploitation-movie promotion.
