Escape can mean many things
23 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie! If you are a Patrick Dempsey fan (as I am), this was a virtual feast. It was more of a romance than an "action" movie. For those who are looking for a violent, shoot-em-up movie focused primarily on a prison escape, I would advise to look elsewhere. This movie is more about feelings and the many different ways to "escape" - from the pain of bad life choices, from a life of sadness, into dreams of a better future. More of an artistic film.

I loved this movie so much I bought a copy and watch it over and over. It was meaningful to me on many levels and I love Patrick with his long hair!
