Josh P (ru) wrote: The twisted Wizard Of Oz-like fantasy I never expected. Perhaps you would never see David Bowie in anything like this before. Nor would you expect to see a film both Hanson and Lucas had done together. The plot is INTERESTING. Creature and puppet design looks ABSORBING. My only concern about this film is the difficulty the production had during the making. A few shots begin and end with a very minor flash. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Blake P (de) wrote: "Escape from Alcatraz" is a nifty little thriller, one whose premise is simple but whose effects are lasting and efficient. It is based on a true story, and yet it doesn't bear the characteristics that come along with a film baiting for biographical cheeriness. Rather than appear as moving fiction with an appetite for afterward discussion, it is as clear and brutish as a slice-of-life. All aspects are kept understated, dark, and quiet - it doesn't call for over-exaggerated thrills because its source is engrossing enough to fill the voids of a feature length film. And for its 112 minutes, "Escape from Alcatraz" never seems to stop building, its tension eventually transitioning into ambiguity and staying with us far longer than what we might at first believe. A good thriller, it seems, doesn't have to be big and loud to turn our blood cold. The film also works as a seamless Clint Eastwood vehicle, where his emotionless facsimile speaks volumes and where his anti-heroism fits like a glove within director Don Siegel's unforced traumas. In "Escape from Alcatraz," which begins in 1960, Eastwood is Frank Morris, a hardened criminal arriving on the island bound prison after numerous stays at other penitentiaries around the country. An inmate with a bad habit of ingeniously escaping from lock-up, he is brought to Alcatraz in hopes that the law can finally contain him. This is a prison, the sadistic warden (Patrick McGoohan) reminds him, that is renowned for being inescapable. Get out the door, fine - but what happens once faced with the many miles of surrounding water? But a life of claustrophobia isn't one of Frank's few interests; increased jail time is more preferable than not even trying to execute a nimble escape. Alcatraz presents an immediate challenge. Far-fetched as such a plot is, he enlists the help of brothers John and Clarence Anglin (Fred Ward and Jack Thibeau), finding further support through a sympathetic carjacker (Larry Hankin), a mentally unstable elder (Roberts Blossom), the prison eccentric (Frank Ronzio), and a likable killer (Paul Benjamin) whose two life sentences are the result of self-defense and living in a racially divided world. The odds aren't in their favor, but gutsiness is - and sometimes, unpretentious enterprise can be the most powerful drug in the world. What I like best about "Escape from Alcatraz" is how clipped its scenes of suspense are. A nail-biting escape sequence might act as the film's climax, but small tastes that build up to the performance of the plan, whether they be the slow but steady digging of the hole in the wall with a spoon or the creation of the dummy heads meant to trick night dwelling guards, keep the film flavorsome and enormously stimulating. We're never kept off the edge of our toes. The characters, all individuals who appear more as victims of life than they do criminals, are played by actors who know something about portraying commiserative men. The closing titles inform us that no one really knows what happened to the people that concocted the blueprint of the infamous 1962 escape - no one ever found bodies, and no one ever reported seeing them strutting their stuff on the land they so desperately yearned to see again. But non-fictional bathos holds Siegel's hand like an affectionate lover, suiting his icy style better than Clint Eastwood ever could.

Paul D (gb) wrote: This is an intriguing silent movie, especially as the narrative is archetypal Hollywood. The same type of themes have been repeated again and again through the years, but this at least has the distinction of being one of the first.

Cort J (ca) wrote: This film has an overactive score, it has a good idea and builds the tension well but is missing a final act. If you watch it late at night it will fill the time.

Ben D (kr) wrote: It unabashedly steals from The Matrix, the special effects are crap, the story is simple and unoriginal, and the characters have no relatibillity or emotion.

Alex S (ru) wrote: These Final Hours is an exhilarating, intense apocalyptic movie that succeeds on a physical and emotional level. Keeping a substantial amount of heart, while also providing great thrills backed up by bleak imagery, These Final Hours is worth a viewing.
