Not As Bad As Everyone makes it out to be
24 July 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

A lot of disparaging remarks in other reviews prompted me to give a more positive slant on it.Yes i know that the prison break is highly dubious.How did they manage to scale a 10 foot wall from the inside,and there is no barbed wire on top.Also the prison is conveniently close to a dance hall so that the lags can nip in on the run to have a quick waltz with one of the women standing around.By the way since the break occurs on a midweek afternoon how come 2 young factory workers are dolled up to the nines instead of slaving away at the workbench?However once the passion of David Kiernan and a young Carol white break loose nothing can stop them not the crooks or the law.Don't expect a great deal and you wont be disappointed.
