ArrowDrome in the PENITENTIARY (review)

CHEERLEADERS' WILD WEEKEND's Leon Isaac Kennedy is in the wrong place at the wrong time and winds up in the PENITENTIARY in Jamaa Fanaka's grindhouse classic.  Set up for a murder he didn't commit, the only way for "Too Sweet" Gordone Martel to get out of prison is to fight his way out in the boxing ring.  When his mortal enemy "Half Dead" Johnson (Ernie Hudson, GHOSTBUSTERS) gets out of prison and targets his family, "Too Sweet" must get back into the ring with the training of Mr. T himself in PENITENTIARY II.  Pick up these two in a double feature disc from Arrow Video's ArrowDrome budget line with commentary on the first film by director Jamaa Fanaka.
