Pointless and ridiculous
4 December 1999 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

One reviewer commented that the movie didn't know if it was an action movie, or an exploration of the minds of prisoners. That about sums it. There's not much action in this prison escape movie, which spends a great deal of time talking about the greatness of poetry, reading poems, or having B&W fantasies about owning a nightclub where people can read poetry. It's as ridiculous as it sounds. The movie seemed like it was going nowhere, and at the end, that's where it was. You'll be asking yourself at that point, "What was the point of all of this?"
