The prison scenes were mostly shot at Cork Prison which had been closed down just weeks before shooting began. See more »
Early in the film, Gordon goes shopping with his family to the 'Raul Street' shopping center. An advertisement for a local restaurant shows prices for various dishes in Euros, which of course did not exist until 17 years later. See more »
Maze is a movie based on the biggest prison escape in Europe. A prison escape of 38 IRA members, a movie on how they planned and executed it. Even though the entire movie is in prison you really never have a dull moment. I doubt that there was not more tension between the Loyalists and the IRA members, like they portray it in this movie, but all in all it was not really about the hate towards eachother but more about the planning of the escape out of this maximum security prison. The cast was good, all the actors did what they were supposed to do. Maze is an entertaining movie that could have used a bit more violence and suspense to make it a better movie, but it's certainly worth watching.
