Good Ideas and Quality Acting Elude "Escapee"

1 July 2013 12:44 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Escapee is the story of a high-security inmate who busts out of prison to go after the young psychology student he's obsessed with. A pretty simple story, for sure, but a classic one.

I'm a fan of Dominic Purcell. I think the man is an intimidating presence while also being badass enough to play a grounded, tough hero. Similar to Joel Schumacher's Blood Creek which is a smart, exciting movie, wherein Purcell delivers, he delivers in Escapee just the same, more or less. Even though the script suffers from some horrific moments of exposition, it's not entirely terrible. However, the movie is fairly by-the-numbers, which might be a problem for some, and it's also a tad ridiculous. The notion that a group of college students would just be lined against the wall while a dangerous prisoner is transferred from one cell to another is completely ridiculous. Granted, I don't »

Blu Review: Escapee

8 April 2013 11:26 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

I love a good slasher movie just as much as the next horror fan. The sub-genre is so hit-and-miss these days. For every Cold Prey or Laid to Rest, we're given 10 more entries that leave you feeling mentally drained by the time the credits roll on them. Anchor Bay Entertainment's Escapee is just lucky enough to fall right in the middle of good and bad in the realm of watchable mediocrity.

Psychology student Abby Jones (Christine Evangelista) makes the mistake of locking eyes with a murderous patient named Harmon (Dominic Purcell) while on a class trip to the local mental institute. Unfortunately, Abby resembles Harmon's girlfriend that he brutally butchered. He escapes from the hospital and heads out in search of Abby, leaving a trail of dead bodies in his wake.

Director / writer Campion Murphy put together the right ingredients for Escapee. The problem is the formula he concocts is overused. »
