Hilarious film with very funny "Shawshank" reference...
23 February 2003 | by amhouseSee all my reviews

Gwangbokjeol teuksa, or "Jail Break", is a terrifically funny film with some great performances, including the lovable idiot played by Sol Kyung-gu who also recently had a very fine performance in the award winning "Oasis".

The film is entirely silly but manages to maintain an air of class. There are also a couple of director's nods to "The Shawshank Redemption" which are enjoyable if not subtle.
