A good movie

I remember it very well, when this movie was released, I was still living in France and I was really eager to check it out. Somhow, it took me almost 20 years to watch it but it was definitely worth the wait. Indeed, I thought it was a really solid court drama and it follows my theory that prisons shouldn’t be only about punishing the inmates, instead, we should be more preoccupied by their reha... read more

A good movie

“I remember it very well, when this movie was released, I was still living in France and I was really eager to check it out.

Indeed, I thought it was a really solid court drama and it follows my theory that prisons shouldn’t be only about punishing the inmates, instead, we should be more preoccupied by their rehabiliation. The funny thing is that this inhumane treatment in Alcatraz was regarded as a form of rehabiliation but it was actually completely the opposite. The other thing I enjoyed was to see good old Christian Slater when he was still one of the most promising actors around. Nowadays, pretty much like Val Kilmer, there is not much left from those good promises. Still, there were a couple of thin” read more

"December 08, 2012 Great movie. Touching story. Great role of Kevin Bacon. It is unfortunate that this whole pathetic shell was fiction and that it was not reflected in reality. If this story was completely true - I would give nine stars."

"8.7.2012 Melko raskassoutuinen, mutta jämäkän viihdyttävä vankila- ja oikeussalileffa. Päähenkilön osalta historiallisia faktoja väännetty Hollywoodin toimesta pahasti sijoiltaan, jotta katsojan sympatiat varmasti olisivat Kevin Baconin esittämän pikkurikollisen puolella, jota Gary Oldman ja muu Alcatrazin henkilökunta kohtelee kaltoin.
