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.

A very good movie

I already saw this movie but since it was a while back, I was quite eager to check it out again. I have to admit that, the first time around, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was starring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman, I thought I might as well watch it. Eventually, I was really impressed. Indeed, it is definitely one of the best movies in this genre and, in fa... read more

"10.5. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Papillon kuuluu siihen Hollywoodin feel good -elokuvien osaan, jolla on muhun sisäänrakennettuna huomattavan lämpöisä suhtautuminen. Tälle ei muuta selitystä ole, kuin isäni ja tämän isän vastaava, johon olen nuorena jotenkin tarttunut. Ehkä myös Steve McQueenin mahdoton coolius vankilatatuoinneissaan. Elokuvallisessa mielessä Papillonilla on selkeät perisyntinsä lapsekkaan veijaroinnin ja vähän yllättäen sentimentalisminkin kanssa, mutta rehel"

"First viewing - Aug. 2nd I really don't have too much to say about Papillon. The acting is excellent and it's a good story, though the ending felt a little underwhelming. Technically the film is mostly excellent. I don't know that I'd go out of my way to sit through it again, but I'm glad I finally saw it."
