Brawl in Cell Block 99: Tough, Brutal Prison Drama, Starring Vince Vaughn

It’s a challenge to explain why this tough, brutal prison drama, in which Vince Vaughn shows his impressive acting chops, failed so miserably at the box-office?
Was it the slow build-up? Excessive running time (132 minutes)? Release date?
Vaughn is well cast as a man down on his luck, Bradley, a former boxer who loses his job as an auto mechanic, and faces the end of his troubled marriage.
At crossroads, he feels that he has no better option than to work for an old buddy as a drug courier. This improves his situation until the terrible day that he finds himself in a gunfight between a group of police officers and his own ruthless allies.
Bradley is badly hurt and thrown in prison, where his enemies force him to commit acts of violence that turn the place into a savage battleground.
Brawl in Cell Block 99, written and directed by S. Craig Zahler (“Bone Tomahawk”) tells a familiar story in a skillful manner, sprinkled with dosages of humor in the dialogue and brutal, expertly staged fight action scenes.
The film also benefits from the supporting turns of Jennifer Carpenter. Udo Kier, and Don Johnson.
