  • Summary: Very gripping film but no idea what it's storyline was! Still watched it right through to end though. I might need to see Scum now.

The American Daddy

Smudgy, LOVEFiLM
4 November 2013
  • Summary: Fairly depressing remake of Scum that follows the travails of three inmates in a violent institution. It is pretty well directed and the actors do a decent job. It's not the original, but it's a fairly good update.

  • Summary: They've tried to remake Scum which without doubt is a cult movie. But this does show how violent these institutions are, this should be enough to make youngsters behave.

Realistic

  • Excerpt: As intense as DOG POUND is, I think it doesn't offer nothing strictly original. Also, it feels a little episodic, and one dimensional. While it's depiction of the rivalry between factions formed within the jail is one of the main focus, the movie forgets to reflect a little MORE of the camaraderie and friendship among cell mates. You can deduce it, but without it, some of the human aspect  that could have awaken a little more compassion from the spectator is absent.

  • Summary: this film is an American take on the British film 'Scum' but unfortunately not as good. this movie is OK but while sum scenes are great to watch the dialog lacks in parts and lets it down.

Nothing new

  • Conclusion: We have been here countless times before (a visit to a juvenile detention centre where the kids are tough and the wardens are tougher) and there is not enough here that stands out as anything different. But it is competently handled (the prison riot at the end is very well done) and Butcher is a striking presence as a young inmate with some severe anger issues.

ALPHA DOGS!

MovieAddict, play.com
29 April 2011
  • Conclusion: This excellent hard hitting drama is based on the British 80's classic Scum, but now is set in the states. This youth correction prison is a tinder box, where a blind eye is turned to the bullying of the weaker and the alph dog will survive. The prison tries to re-build these kids so they don't re-offend, but mainly they are bound to re-offend.

Dog Pound

  • Summary: Vous avec aimé le suspense et le stress de Sheitan ? Alors vous aimerez la nouvelle réalisation de Kim Chapiron !! Ce film est fortement recommandé aux amateurs de films d’action et de thriller à suspense. Dog Pound est un concentré d’énergie, de violence, de défoulement… et de solidarité....
