This was actually far better then I thought it would be. Great acting by Steve McQueen who played such a tireless character, especially when it came to the solitary part of the movie.
This is a definite classic.

"day 01- the best movie you saw during the last year Probably the one I can recall the best. Impossible not to, when you have one of the greatest duos in cinema history, Steve "the king of cool" McQueen and Dustin Hoffman. "

"Two of my favorite actors in one of my least favorite movies. This one just didnt click with me. However McQueens incredible portrayal of solitary confinement was both captivating and heart-breaking."

"Steve McQueen as Henri Charriere Perhaps Steve McQueen's greatest role as the Devil's Island prisoner 'Papillon'. If you haven't seen this movie, you really must. Dustin Hoffman as Louis Dega "

The Cinephile's Film Journal: 2012 (330 movies items)

"Watched: 5/13/12 1st Viewing Thoughts: A wonderfully acted, creative, well shot and trippy prison break film, though not as memorable or powerful as 'The Green Mile' or 'The Great Escape'. Nevertheless, 'Papillon' is a damn good watch, and not one to pass up. Its very underlooked, but I recommend it to all. "

"15.2. Teknisesti tottakai pätevä, mutta kovaotteisissa vankilakuvauksissa on yleensä se ongelma, että sen vankilan kovuuden tajuaa jo puolessa tunnissa. Papillonin tapauksessa sitä vain hierotaan katsojan naamaan, ja minulle tuli siinä kuudennentuhannennen vanginvartija hakkaa vangin pahuuttaan -kohtauksen aikana jo sellainen olo, että leffa aliarvioi katsojaansa. Tämän takia 150 minuuttia tuntuu enemmänkin kolmelta ja puolelta tunnilta. Lopussa tuleva seikkailuosio on tottakai leffan"

"Ostin Papillonin joskus vuosituhannen alussa, lienee ensimmmäisen kymmenen elokuvan joukossa jonka hankin. Tuntui silloin tolkuttoman pitkästyttävältä ja kärsii edelleenkin pituutensa vuoksi, mutta McQueenin ja Hoffmanin taistelu suolla krokotiilin kanssa muistuttaa, että joskus sentään maailmanluokan tähtiä laitettiin oikeisiin töihin. Miellyttävän ryönäinen ja ahdistavan hiljainen teos."

Movie Quotes (69 movies items)

""- I'm innocent. I didn't kill that pimp. You couldn't get anything on me and you framed me. - That is quite true. But your real crime has nothing to do with a pimp's death. - Well then? What is it? - Yours is the most terrible crime a human being can commit. I accuse you of a wasted life. - Guilty." "Someone once said that temptation resisted is the true measure of character.""
