The Escapist (2002)

I watched this 2002 movie, The Escapist on Netflix DVD. It stars Jonny Lee Miller (Hackers, Trainspotting, Dracula 2000, Mindhunters, Æon Flux, Endgame, Roger Collins in Dark Shadows, T2 Trainspotting, Dexter and Sherlock Holmes in Elementary, ) as the escape artist. An accomplished pilot, he ends up breaking out of several prisons, to get put in the worst prison, Sullom Voe, so he can revenge the brutal murder of his wife. The film was written by Nick Perry (British playwright and screenwriter).

The Escapist is produced by Jolyon Symonds (Thorne: Sleepyhead, Complicit) and directed by Gillies MacKinnon (a Scottish film director, writer and painter, A Simple Twist of Fate, Regeneration, Whisky Galore).

Other stars are Andy Serkis (English actor, voice actor, motion capture artist, narrator, film director and producer, the voice of Gollum in The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies, Deathwatch, 2005 King Kong, Brighton Rock, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, War for the Planet of the Apes, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Black Panther, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Venom: Let There be Carnage),

Paloma Baeza (a British actress and director of English and Mexican heritage, A Kid in King Arthur’s Court, Sunshine), Gary Lewis (Outlander, Billy Elliot, Eragon), Jodhi May (The Last of the Mohicans, Maggie the Frog in Game of Thrones, The Witcher) and Vas Blackwood (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels).

I like the movie and will give it 3 out of 5 stars. For more information read Wikipedia, IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes.
