Watch Escape!
14 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here's the thing. Yes this movie is getting a lot of press from filming in Disneyland without "their" consent, but it's still a good movie. It's an interesting journey of one mans perversions. Are they real? Are they in his head? The filmmaker explores these issues in a way that keeps your attention. My thoughts are- it could have been filmed in your local park. Where or how it was filmed, isn't the point. The story, direction, and actors is what makes it worth your while! The fact that a small independent film is getting a major theatrical release is important in the current state of the film business. This film gives hope to the up and coming filmmakers who have a good story, vision, and collaboration with production members, that you can still do it on your own.
