Maria de Medeiros,
An American man, played by Jim Caviezel, is kidnapped after a friend invites him to Cairo to speak out about recent militant uprisings. His wife heads to the city after hearing the news, determined to get him back.
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 »
OK, I have not seen the original series, and have to say that I have enjoyed this new version. It can be confusing, however, thats half the fun! (some people also complains about Kubricks the Shining, do we listen to them? ).
As I am new to the Prisoner, I don't find anything wrong with it. Why not it be in the desert? Why should we change number 2 in every episode (as I understand happens in the original version). And this is so much more than a 60s spy buff!
Im going to see all the episodes, and cant wait to find out what the h... is going on!
