Two bell.

I figure I owe you.

Yo. Did you hear

what I said?

I heard.


Everybody down now!

On the ground!

You! Inmate! On the ground!


Get down!

You heard him!

On the fucking ground!

You're up.

To your left.

On the line.

All right...

Step to the right.

Let's go.



Against the wall.

Let's go.

Lunchtime, inmate.

Eat your veggies.

There you go.

Hey, Roag!


Got the time?

F*ck you care?

You got a date?


Maybe you got

a sister or a cousin?

Wanna get your head smashed?

No, not really.

It's five to 4:

Wise ass.

Hey, Fruitcake!

Let's go.

Two... Three... Four...

Five... Six... Seven...




290... 291...

292... 293...


295... 296...

297... 298...

299... 300.

What the f*ck...

Come on!

You okay?

I got everybody.

I got everybody.

What the f*ck's going on?

We've got a fire, gate two.

All prisoners

back to their cells.

Copy that.

What the f*ck...

We got a runner!

Repeat, prisoner is running!

Let's go, let's go!

Nice look.

Hush's idea.

Nice, right?

How was inside, boss man?

Inside's great.

Everyone's asking about you.

If you weren't out soon,

I'd be breaking into

that motherfucker

and pulling your ass out.

Only ex-con I know gets out,

wants to go back in.

I didn't say "wants."

I said I would.

There is a difference.

Don't spend it all

in one place.

We have an escape

from Bend-water Penitentiary.

Step out of the booth

with your hands in the air!


Put your hands

in the air! Now!

Get them up, now!

Hands in the air!

Put your hands on your head!

Interlock your fingers! Do not move!

Beautiful day.

What the hell is going on here?

Calm down, Warden.

I'm Lester Clark.

I'm the CEO of B&C Security.

You might have heard of us.


All right, well... We're an

independent security company

hired by the Federal Bureau

of Prisons

to test the integrity of their maximum

security facilities nationwide.

This is Ray Breslin. He's my

partner and resident Houdini.


For the last seven years,

Ray has been inserted into

every maximum incarceration

facility in the system.

He is there to ensure that

each and every one of them

is 100% escape-proof.

And apparently yours wasn't,

and he got out.


Okay, fine.

I suppose you're gonna

tell me how you did it?

Think he wants to know?

Doesn't seem like it.

Ray, you're on.


let's start from the top.

Any break requires three

things, knowing the layout,

understanding the routine,

and help from outside or in.

If you know the layout,

the weak side is obvious.

In Bend-waters case,

it's the Secure Housing Unit.

The government expenditure was 17

million dollars building that facility.

It's state-of-the-art.

The only problem is, it's located

next to an unsecured fire garage.

First I needed to get inside,

so I made some enemies.

Once inside, it was obvious

you were short-staffed.

Federal guidelines recommend

two guards are present

when transferring high risk inmates.

You only use one.

Knowing the guards' routine

was the next step.

Thirty seconds into my rec time,

my CO took a smoke break.

For seven minutes every day,

there were no eyes on me.


After I knew the routine, all

I had to do was pick the day

and arrange for a distraction at the

front gate for exactly 4:00 p.m.

But at this point, you were still

locked inside a steel box.

To get out,

you had to have a key code.

You have very

good chocolate milk.
