The Escapist

The Escapist

Denis Hopkins, a pilot, lives with his pregnant wife Valerie and has a comfortable lifestyle. When a gang of criminals led by the sadistic Ricky Barnes breaks into his home, he offers whatever the criminals want to protect his wife and unborn child, but the evil Ricky kills Valerie anyway. Their baby is saved, and later Barnes is arrested and sentenced to life in the maximum security prison, Sullen Voe. Denis fakes his own suicide, then assaults a police car in order to get himself arrested and sent to prison with the intention of tracking down and killing Ricky Barnes. He does not reveal his true name and is called John "What" by the prisoners and guards. Denis escapes from successive prisons, forcing his eventual transfer to Sullen Voe. When he reaches his objective, Ricky Barnes schedules a confrontation, but things do not quite turn out the way Denis had expected.

Alfin N (kr) wrote: All because of that old, stupid, evil eskimo shaman. But Sarila turned out to be too easy to find.

Benny G (ag) wrote: Beautiful film, with an arresting performance by Denis Lavant .

Paul M (us) wrote: this movie deserved to do much better at the box office. i think it suffered from the cringe factor provoked by the "i want to kill myself" nature of australian film making in the last couple of years. in time this will be seen as the boy's own puberty blues. the filming is beautiful, including some great surf scenes... but it does expose some of the ugliness of young aussie men.

Dany S (us) wrote: Ce n'est pas un mauvais film mais , il y a beaucoup dreure historique. La plus flagrante est que Hitler n'etait sur la premire ligne au poutch que sur les photos de propagande.

Jens S (kr) wrote: Not entirely as original as the first film but doing fine in its self-awareness of sequel rules. In addition there are some outrageously exciting scenes. Too bad the two killers are as chatty as the ones in the first part during the showdown.

Russell H (fr) wrote: Ice Cube is the man.

Gena D (ag) wrote: I think I remember liking this.

Jeff Y (ag) wrote: One outstanding summer classic.

Brenda S (ca) wrote: It's a classic. Very nice adaptation of the original novel.(At least, it's better than that new "Flicka" movie).

Supes S (ru) wrote: Great movie. Well-writen characters,well-paced, and overall a crazy thrill movie. Absolutely an amazing movie

Lucas M (fr) wrote: Dalton Trumbo direction?

Tanner B (de) wrote: Licence To Kill (1989) ??? 007 goes rogue, setting off to find man responsible for hurting personal friend. That same man also happens to be a dangerous drug lord. Timothy Dalton's second outing for secret agent is much more vigorous (and therefore has less old-time Ian Fleming panache), but is completely absorbing; largely benefiting from great stunts, exotic locations, high adventure. A must for action fans.

Paul S (ag) wrote: Unexpectedly good. Unexpected because I'd never heard of it before watching, good because the chemistry between Tom/Iris and Iris/Hannah feels as if these characters are real. Mark Duplass is equal parts sad and funny, and Emily Blunt and Rosemarie Dewitt truly seem like sisters. I was astonished to find that Dewitt was a replacement cast the day before shooting. The scenes between Hannah/Iris feel so incredibly organic, namely their discussion while lying in bed, that I was truly shocked. Definitely recommend.

Sherief Z (kr) wrote: The intentions was very good and promising till the end, but ruined by a distracted screenplay. The dubbing quality was awful and distracted me too. In the same time, i couldn't tell that HD was the shooting format.

Craig Dylan W (br) wrote: Everything about this film misses the mark. Hank Williams Sr. deserved a lot better. His storytelling ability to convey an emotion thru song was among the very best. Perhaps a director who finds a compelling way to portray that on film, will do a better job someday. CDW
