Storyline

Bank-robber Franck Adrien is serving a prison sentence after robbing a national bank. Before he was caught he managed to hide the money but now it's not just the police who are looking for the money. His cell-mate is Jean-Louis Maurel, an alleged rapist/child molester who claims his innocence. When the court finds Maurel not guilty, Maurel promises to look after Franck's family when he gets out. But one day, a man called Manuel Carrega tells Franck that Maurel is a suspected serial killer and that Franck's family is in danger. Franck escapes from prison and police officer Claire Linné and her team take up the chase. Written by curtherzstark

Prey Tell...well
30 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You get just about everything in this movie. Who doesn't like stolen loot, prison scenes, fights, plots & twists, shoot-outs, betrayals, and the unexpected? Entertainment is presented and never lets up after a certain point. Only good movies can cause thriller, tensed up feelings where nails are ripe for the biting and one grips the arm rest. Its a good ride, decent story, exceptional acting and direction is good. It appears everyone liked being in this movie and because of that, we get what we wanted...a solid action flick back. Escape here with a tasty drink, some snack and no texting or distractions. Let the movie have you until it lets go...Well done.
