This film doesn’t use explosions or CGI’s to make it a wonderful film. This is one of the many reasons that the film didn’t become a box office hit despite the critical acclaim. Although, it has taken me a while to watch the film I will say this, it is outstanding storytelling. It goes deeper than just a prison movie. It is a great story of friendship, hope, and freedom that are beyond the prison walls. This film is timeless and should go down in history as one of the best films of all time.
