    The Rock

    Stanley Goodspeed, who lives in Washington D.C., is a biochemist who works for the FBI. Soon after his fiancée Carla Pestalozzi announces that she is pregnant, Stanley gets a call from FBI director James Womack. Womack tells Stanley that San Francisco's Alcatraz Island has been taken hostage, along with 81 tourists, by marine General Francis Xavier Hummel who, for years, has been protesting the government's refusal to pay benefits to families of war veterans who died during covert military operations. The death of his wife Barbara Hummel on March 9, 1995 drove General Hummel over the edge, and now he's holding hostages in order to get his point across. Stanley is needed because General Hummel has stolen some VX gas warheads and has announced that he will launch them onto San Francisco unless his demands are met. Stanley knows how to disarm the bombs, but Stanley needs someone who knows Alcatraz well enough to get him inside. That man is former British intelligence agent John Patrick Mason, who has been in prison for the past 30 years without a trial because he was accused of stealing the private files of J. Edgar Hoover. In 1962, John became the only inmate ever to escape from Alcatraz, and he stayed out of Alcatraz long enough to father a daughter named Jade Angelou. Despite his extreme hatred of the FBI, John agrees to help Stanley. When John and Stanley are sent into Alcatraz with a Navy SEAL team, General Hummel's men kill the entire SEAL team, leaving Stanley and John to work on their own to rescue the hostages.

    Undisputed

    World Heavyweight Champion boxer George “Iceman” Chambers (VING RHAMES) feels he’s being sent to prison on a trumped up charge of rape, which he vigorously denies. He’s angry that at the peak of his professional boxing career, he’s being prevented from enjoying and protecting his undisputed champion status.

    Serving a life sentence for a crime of passion in the same penitentiary that will house Iceman is Monroe Hutchen (WESLEY SNIPES). The prisoners consider Hutchen their hero … their undisputed champion boxer. Resigned to spending the rest of his life in prison, Hutchen still harbors the haunting question as to whether he would have amounted to anything as a boxer.

    Also serving the rest of his life in the same medium-to-maximum prison is Emmanuel “Mendy” Ripstein (PETER FALK), whose gangland ties can be traced back to Batista’s Cuba. He’s still well-connected with the State government, the Mob and the prison management. Two henchmen, Al Mazzula (JOHNNY WILLIAMS) and Vinnie Dipolito (JOE D’ANGERIO) have set prisoner Jesus “Chuey” Campos (JON SEDA) to discover if the illusive Mendy had stashed any of his crime money in a secret Swiss bank account. Getting any kind of a direct answer out of the shrewd Mandy is hampered by his use of his age, his rheumatoid arthritis and his convenient bouts of Alzheimer’s.

    In the tension that exists in the prison between these two “champs,” Mendy sees an opportunity to promote one last big fight hidden in the secure environment behind bars. Pulling all kinds of strings, Mendy lures Iceman into the fight by promising him a shot at an early release and that no one on the outside would ever learn about the fight or the outcome. Also, Iceman recognizes that his choice not to work with, or align himself with any of the group gangs within the prison, will continue to make his life miserable and could eventually endanger his life. 

    Getting Hutchen into the ring is harder. He’s a gentler soul, who has accepted his life behind bars. Hutchen doesn’t trust the money promised by Mendy, but the invitation opens his mind to what he might have become as a professional boxer. His one shot at fighting a professional champion. Mendy’s connections soften the resistance of the prison by undercutting Warden Dick Lipscomp (DENIS ARNDT) and chief guard A. J. Mercker (MICHAEL BOOKER). Iceman’s cell mate Mingo (WES STUDI) and another prisoner Ratboy Dolan (FISHER STEVENS) are assigned the jobs of the fighter’s “managers.”

    Iceman’s outside manager Yank Lewis (DAYTON CALLIE) supports the fight if it means an early release for his fighter, even accepting Mendy’s choice for fight’s London rules, which means lighter gloves and calls for a fight to the finish. The warden goes on a convenient vacation, the head guard is forced to be the fight’s referee and an in-prison rap group (MASTER P) provides the pre-fight entertainment. For security, the ring is enclosed in a giant iron cage and topped with circles of razor wire. Bleachers on all four sides are filled with raucous inmates who know they’ll be the only witnesses to this moment in boxing history.

    The prisoners’ creative version of the National Anthem is sung, the inmate coaches leave the ring with their towels and stools, and the head guard Mercker order the doors locked and starts the fight. And at that moment, these two warrior boxers will engage in the purest fight of their lives to prove to who really owns the title of the undisputed champ.
