Rather average low budget British crime drama
15 September 2005 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

Gaolbreak is one of quite a few British crime B movies ITV have shown in the last couple of years or so in the early hours. Though not brilliant, this one is not as bad as the TV listings suggested.

Two brothers, along with their mother and some others plan a burglary but the problem is, one of the brothers is in prison, so a way is devised to get him out. This achieved, they plan the heist in the back room of the newsagents the family run. Along with one of the brother's pregnant girlfriend, they achieve their goal.

This movie is made by Butcher's, who made a lot of these low budgeters at this time. Some were better than others.

The cast doesn't have many big names in it and includes Carol White (Cathy Come Home) and Robert Fyfe, who is now a regular in long running comedy Last of the Summer Wine (he plays Howard). Top billing goes to Peter Reynolds, who appeared in sci-fi "classic" Devil Girl From Mars.

Gaolbreak is a good time filler for an hour or so one evening.

Rating: 2 and a half stars out of 5.
