Movie Reviews

The New York Times - 8/10 by Vincent CanbyA big, brave, stouthearted, sometimes romantic, sometimes silly melodrama with the kind of visual sweep you don't often find in movies anymore.
Variety - 8/10 by Variety StaffThe script is very good within its limitations, but there is insufficient identification with the main characters.
TIME Magazine - 8/10 by Richard SchickelAudiences whose expectations do not exceed their grasp will find it a much more comfortable vehicle for escape than any that McQueen & Co. discover on location.
Times (UK) - 8/10 by Kevin MaherThe narrative is epic and life-spanning...The locations are stunning...and the surreal touches...add to the sense of a highly original art-movie spectacular.
Common Sense Media - 8/10 by Barbara ShulgasserClassic prison-escape movie has intense peril, violence.
Movie Metropolis - 7/10 by John J. PuccioThe narrative unfolds slowly, but the two stars are compelling and cinematographer Fred Koenekamp's photography is striking.
Village Voice - 7/10 by Andrew SarrisOne of the greatest behind-bars movies ever, the result finds director Franklin J. Schaffner making the most of both his sun-drenched locations and his leading man, who squintily acts even co-star Dustin Hoffman well off the screen.
The Spectator - 7/10 by Christopher HudsonPapillon was not a complicated man but his experiences changed him almost beyond recognition, and McQueen does a good job of portraying the survivor, broken in body, but not in spirit.
eFilmCritic.com - 6/10 by Brian MckayAwesome jailbreak film with gritty performances.
Chicago Reader - 5/10 by Don DrukerNo sense of complicity between filmmaker and spectator, no depth, no ambiguity, no production value spared, plenty of running time and pomposity, and a desperate sense of trying to do everything and please everybody.
