- Click here for “press highlights” for The Escapist including these comments about Damian Lewis’s portrayal of the evil Rizza:
The film punches well above its clearly low budget weight, thanks to some fine acting – notably from Cox, who dominates the film, Damian Lewis’ chilling psycho and Joseph Fiennes’s scarily pumped-up con.

An excellent British crime film with none of the embarrassing ‘cor blimey’ caper of previous Brit outings… Brian Cox is outstanding as an aging screw with nothing to loose, while Damian Lewis simmers as the prison boss…The Escapist proves that British actors and film makers don’t need to rely on SFX to get your blood pumping. Josh Woodfin – FHM
…an impressively pumped up Joe Fiennes, while Damian Lewis is icily threatening as the prison’s calculating big shot. Red
