Tension and thrills in 'The Escapist'

Director: Rupert Wyatt

Cast: Brian Cox, Damian Lewis, Joseph Fiennes

Brian Cox is always worth watching, none more so than in this seat-gripping tale in which he plays con Frank Perry who devises a terrific plan to get out of jail in order to make peace with his estranged daughter.

The action is set chiefly in the escape tunnels and is conducted at a high level of tension and thrills … by a cast that is collectively excellent.

A great escapist film that will keep you involved to the end.

Star Rating: 5/5
