When an American journalist goes to the Pakistani / Afghanistan border to interview Russian prisoners of war, he gets a much bigger story.
9 January 2003 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

What a disappointment. ESCAPE FROM AFGHANISTAN had the potential to be so thrilling and engaging, but since the acting was so flat, it made it unwatchable. The overall filmmaking was mediocre at best. Too bad since it is so topical right now.
