Critic Reviews for Akilla's Escape

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (18) | Rotten (5)

  • Saul Williams' 40-year old Akilla Brown juxtaposed with Mpumlwana's 15-year old Akilla fortify Officer's crime drama. Instead of a movie about a drug deal gone wrong, Akilla's Escape is a film about manhood, mercy, and second chances.

  • Terrific performances from poet/actor Saul Williams ("Slam") as a dealer in need of redemption and Thamela Mpumlwana (who takes on two different roles) make this saga special.

    September 30, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The action scenes are never up to the standards of a good crime/action/thriller. Tighter editing and a more fine-tuned script would have helped.

    September 22, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Akilla's Escape is nicely photographed by Maya Bankovic... as the storytelling stays resolutely and ultimately boringly on beat.

    September 18, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A movie that's in love with its technical elements a bit too much, over-reliant on stylish tricks when its greatest power is in Williams' world-weary visage.

    September 15, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Akilla's Escape may only cover one very bad night in the life of a city, but its power will stick with you for days, even weeks.
