Read the book and you will realize that this move - and the 1973 one - both pale in comparison. You remember books. Those are the things that contain interesting stories the movie producers seek to destroy.

This is an insulting remake of the 1973 classic Papillon. I don't even want to get into the details because I'm so angry right now. The only reason this movie exists is so that your kids see THIS instead of the original. Back in the 1980's, when I was a kid, we would see all the classics on TV, and it makes you so intelligent and cultured watching those films. The new generations? 50 IQ super hero movies, reboots, CGI porn, and remakes that are shadows of the originals.
Hollywood, you need to stop erasing history. I know what you're doing, and it's not going to work. You're not going to get your global socialist dystopia. You're going to fail to destroy Western culture and history.
STOOOOOOOOOOP. I hate you hollywood. I'm so glad the Indie scene exists to counter your evil.
Btw, Papillon is French for 'Butterfly,' and not 'Escape.'
If you have never seen the original then save it until after you have watched this version first. This is not a bad film, however if you rush off to make sure you see the original before watching this, then you will be constantly comparing it to the original and won't get to enjoy this as much because it is of coarse different. They have made a few changes to scenes :/ and skipped some entirely :( but as far as remakes go they've done a pretty bloody good job compared to some other films and TV series I could mention. Of coarse it's easy to sit back and judge, which is why you should wait to see the original after you've watched this one first, trust me you'll enjoy it more that way. However if you are the type who likes having a good whinge then forget everything you just read ;) but reviewers, don't try and ruin it for a whole new generation, the story is still good. Most young people today are not going to read the book or sit through an "old" movie for that matter most probably either... but they will watch this.
