Maria de Medeiros,
A New Yorker awakens to find himself in a place called "The Village" run by a man known as "Two". As everyone in The Village is referred to only by a number, everyone in The Village refers to him as Six, despite him knowing that he has another name, and seems to know who he is. He is told he lives in The Village, and that The Village is the only reality there is. Six's mission becomes to find out where The Village is, who Two is, and why he is seemingly keeping him prisoner in The Village (despite Two stating that Six is a free man), and how he can escape to his life back in New York City. Six has to learn who amongst the Villagers he can trust, who include a doctor named 313, a cab driver named 147, and Two's own son named 11-12, in his quest to escape from The Village. Six also has recurring memories of his life in New York City, including an encounter with a woman named Lucy, which may be part of the key to discovering why he's in The Village.Written by
"Be seeing you" is a commonly heard phrase in The Prisoner (1967), this movie, and was also one of Patrick McGoohan's catchphrases in Danger Man (1960) and Secret Agent (1964) . McGoohan's character "Johnny Cousin" (a pot smoking drummer) in All Night Long (1962) uses the phrase also when he says goodbye to the road manager "Berger" towards the end of the movie. See more »
As a fan of the original Prisoner I can't begin to say how incredibly disappointed I am with this "remake". The "plot" is non-existent and makes no sense. It might be good if it had characters that made kept your interest in spite of the unintelligible plot line but sadly there isn't a single character that makes me care about what happens to them. In the original Patrick McGoohan was an excellent actor and portrayed an engaging character. The character of 6 in the original embodied the admirable quality of not giving up in spite of the odds. He was direct, smart and capable. In contrast, this 6 is a confused mamby-pamby guy with the personality of a doorstop. I am especially disappointed that one of my favorite actors, Ian McKellen would agree to appear in this mess. I think Patrick McGoohan is turning over in his grave.
