Did You Know?


In the opening scene we see Red resting on his bunk looking up at a picture of his wife. Next to her picture is a carving of the last stanza of a very famous poem by the Victorian era English poet William Ernest Henley titled "Invictus", which is Latin for "unconquered". This verse symbolizes self-discipline and fortitude in adversity and has been quoted by many famous people including Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela, Nobel Peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi and US President Barack Obama, who used it to close his speech at Nelson Mandela's memorial service. This poem also has a special significance to numerous famous incarcerated people including Mandela mentioned above; American POW's held in the infamous "Hanoi Hilton" prison during the Vietnamese War are known to have shared it with each other written in rat droppings and Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh used it as his final statement before his execution. The last stanza is: It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul. See more »


When Luc is in on the rooftop with the sniper rifle, as he looks through the scope you can briefly see on the far right side the temporary "No Parking" signs the police posted (with duct tape) prior to filming to prevent people from parking in the spaces with visible parking meters. See more »

It's weird, but still watchable, barely, I mean
4 November 2019 | by Bad-Good-GreatSee all my reviews

But the real problem is the cast, and the worst mistaken cast is Luke Bracey, who played the role, Red. What a terrible actor. The whole movie is completely ruined by this guy, Jesus. He's not into this role and into this movie, and his weird Aussie accent also made him out of the place. His acting is awkward, lukewarm, contrite, forced, didn't even try hard to let himself into that role and into this movie. This guy is the first actor made me curse a lot. I noticed that Tomer Sisley played a bar tender role in it, and immediately thought that he might be the better choice for the Red role. Luke Bracey is a disaster. This guy should change his profession right away, I seriously think any movie he's in it would totally ruin it.

Tomer Sisley is a weirdo actor but a very talented one. He's the one that made this movie barely watchable in an over-the-top absurd way. There were many segments quite funny but the large part of this movie was not good, between melodrama and farce. I just don't understand what's the purpose Red's daughter would insist speaking French only. The dialog between the Red's wife and his daughter was in French, but what's the particular purpose? Then a guy speaking in heavy Aussie accent English also further messed up in a farce style. I don't know why, but even during my writing of this clueless review, I still feel bad about Luke Bracey, the lousy and bad actor in this movie.
