- Rob Hunter’s review of The Escapist for Film School Rejects includes these comments about the film:
“…First-time director Rupert Wyatt also co-wrote the film with Daniel Hardy, and he shows an interesting eye for both the bleak and dreamlike visuals as well as the alternating narrative threads…Wyatt knows exactly when to switch to the action of the escape itself. Aside from the timing, Wyatt’s edits are also stylistically impressive as locations and events in one thread trigger the move into the other fairly seamlessly…
(Brian Cox) owns the film and his performance alone makes it worth viewing. The remainder of the cast all serve to support him and most do so quite well. One of the standouts is a bulked-up, angry, and barely recognizable (Joseph) Fiennes, and another is Damian Lewis (“Life”) as the menancing Rizza, the most powerful and dangerous convict inside. Both men play hard-asses but do so with completely different styles…The Escapist was released last week on R2 DVD. It’s scheduled for a limited US release from IFC on April 3rd.”
