Critic Consensus: Papillon puts its own well-acted, solidly produced spin on a previously adapted tale, although it may not be quite enough to erase viewers' memories of the 1973 version.

Critic Reviews for Papillon
I could never quite figure out why this story was being told again, and I drifted away from its action way too often.
As director Michael Noer struggles to tease a theme out of a string of exploits, Papillon remains as entertaining as ever.
It is an impressively staged and appropriately rain-soaked, mud-splattered, bone-crunching tale, more violent and filled with rougher language than its predecessor, if not quite as powerful or moving.
Director Michael Noer falls short in a number of ways, leaving a sense of missed opportunity.
