Movie Reviews

Film Threat - 9/10 by Mark BellOn top of the tried-and-true prison genre formula coupled with the misfit gang formula, Rupert Wyatt's "he Escapist flips everything on its ear by playing out in two timelines simultaneously.
Village Voice - 8/10 by Jean OppenheimerA taut thriller that ends on a note of unexpected grace.
Portland Oregonian - 8/10 by Shawn LevyHollywood used to make a fair number of films like The Escapist (sigh: remember grown-up dramas?), and it's a satisfying variation on a once-familiar theme.
The New York Times - 7/10 by Jeannette CatsoulisShapes a standard prison-break drama into a metaphysical study of freedom and reparation.
Los Angeles Times - 7/10 by Robert AbeleIt makes for an unexpectedly welcome form of dramatic escape: the character study breaking free from a hoary old movie genre.
The Hollywood Reporter - 6/10 by Stephen FarberAll of this mayhem keeps us watching, but it would be hard to describe the experience as pleasurable.
New York Daily News - 4/10 by Joe NeumaierThe splintered viewpoints help with the monotony, but from the taunting of new inmates to the cell-block sadist, we've gone through all this before, right down to the final twists.
New York Post - 4/10 by Kyle SmithIt all leads nowhere. There are pull-the-rug-out endings, and then there are pull-the-floor-out endings. The Escapist leaves you standing on nothing, like Wile E. Coyote, wondering why you bothered to come this far.
L.A. Weekly - 3/10 by Scott FoundasAll might have been forgiven were it not for a needlessly Shyamalanized ending that deserves to earn Wyatt at least 25 years for grand-theft cinema.
