A film that does not work really, it fails and I was liking it to a degree through most of the film. I did not think it was overly great but I thought was an okay escape movie. The characters were not that well developed and non of the acting was that great besides Brian Cox. The reason it feel below okay escape movie is because the ending does not work at all and is a poor attempt to make the movie different and artistic and causes the film to fail.

It's not a bad movie, just not a very good one. Its problem lies with its structure which immediately defuses any excitement, along with bland characters who don't evoke any sympathy or motives for their escape. Its a film you'll forget about the minute its over.
