Its about a man that does a robbery to get in prison so he can take revenge.

Hi! I saw a movie a couple a years ago. It was about a man who would take revenge on someone who had done something against the protagonist and ended up in jail for it. The protagonist robbed a bank to end up in jail so he could kill the other guy, but he didnt end up in the same prison. He therefore escaped the prison and did a bigger crime, but still not ended up in the same prison, he escaped again. And he keep up doing bigger and bigger crimes until he ended up in the same prison, so he could take revenge.

Someone knows the name on the movie i think of?

One of the tags is "alcatraz". Are you positive that Alcatraz is involved in the movie? Alcatraz was the prison where the man was trying to get into?
Yes, I am pretty sure Alcatraz was the last prison he ended up in. It war there the protagonist  took revenge on the other guy.
Any idea when this movie was made approx.? When did you see it?
Not sure :( I saw it for about three years ago, I think it was pretty new then..
