Audience Reviews for Convicts

This is one bizzare movie. At least 15-20 minutes of which sees Robert Duval Shooting at a emtey closet swearing there is an escapted convict in it. Avoid this one.

Nicely made, very well acted by the whole cast. Good sound and cinematography. Unfortunately it can be quite boring and moves very slowly. I never really lost interest, but I also did not find it particularly involving.
