Critic Reviews for The Prison

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

A criminally underplotted South Korean caper that's as disappointingly generic as its title.

"The Prison"...feels like the kind of movie Hollywood will remake in its own image. But adding star power and the English language won't necessarily improve things, as "The Prison" is brutally entertaining just the way it is.

The Prison is a basic concept with a simple execution that keeps the film from being a complete waste of time. Its biggest flaw is that exploring unfamiliar territory seems within the film's grasp, but instead it relies on predictability.

Disgraced cop uncovers a criminal gang in a corrupt prison. Far-fetched thriller from Korea plows familiar ground.
