I Feel Bad Dominic Purcell Agreed To This
5 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film hardly deserves a solid, serious review. We have Dominic Purcell as a man who is locked up and one day sees a student on a field trip and apparently becomes obsessed with her. He breaks out ,and begins tracking her down.

Now, first of all, I feel bad that Purcell is involved in a "prison break" film, because he should really be trying to move away from such things. But anyway, he is the best part of this train wreck of a film. The plot is convoluted, it just seems to go where it wants... they could have had a violent psychopath killing people or a teen slasher, but it seems like they wanted this and something a bit more intelligent -- a combination they were not ready to pull off.

This is not the worst film I have seen this year, and probably not the worst film I have seen this month... but I would strongly advise people to watch just about anything else.
