The Escapist stars Brian Cox as Frank Perry - an institutionalized convict who is twelve years into a life sentence without parole.

When his estranged daughter falls ill, he is determined he make peace with her before it's too late. He develops an ingenious escape plan, and recruits a dysfunctional band of escapists - misfits with a mutual dislike for one other but united by their desire to escape their hell hole of an existence.

Enjoyed this, nice to see the great Brian Cox in a lead role.
The film was pretty intense all the way with a very uneasy feel to proceedings.
The pace is good and the performances are top notch.

 The twist is all it has !

This film has all the prison cliche that you would expect. Half way through you start to loose the will to watch it .....then it picks up the ending is the best part of the film and its a great twist ! In saying that its not a great film 3 stars only and thats just for the twist otherwise 2 stars !

Whilst brian cox cannot be flawed, the script was poor and the action never really started. It was never nerve wracking like a true escape film and some of the characters were poorly cast. Overall i found it dull and unoriginal.

 painting by numbers

I thought this film was ok. The plot was predictable adn you could see the "twist" coming a mile off.
Its alright, but not somehting i would rush out and buy.

 Disjointed and random

The film started off promising but the style of film was too disjointed and eratic jumping from digging the tunnel and then back to the cells. Plus it had little credibility with prisoners seemiingly to be magically free from thier locked cells to carry out this digging. I was wishing for the film to end
