Movie Info

Ian McKellen and James Caviezel headline this remake of Patrick McGoohan's landmark British television series. Shortly after resigning from a clandestine spy organization based in New York, a man (Caviezel) awakens in The Village and discovers that he's now known as "6." A desert oasis in which conformity is the key to contentment, The Village is populated by people who seem to have no knowledge of the outside world. Everyone in The Village is designated a number, and the omnipresent 2 (McKellen) is always watching. But while most of the locals seem to thrive on the simplicity of life in The Village, the only option for desperate 6 is to escape at any cost.

Critic Reviews for The Prisoner

All Critics (3)

The opening episode and the closing episode were decent, but everything in between seems to be just fluff to add confusion to the audience via the characters themselves.

Not even the combined forces of Jesus and Gandalf can save this from being anything more than just a passable time killer.

October 24, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

The producers approach the concept with all due seriousness and, for all the enigmatic details, a literalness that loses the dark humor, satirical wit and the allegorical resonance of the original.
