Based on the international best-selling autobiographical books "Papillon" and "Banco," this action-packed true story follows the epic life of Henri "Papillon" Charrière (Charlie Hunnam), a safecracker from the Parisian underworld who is framed for murder and condemned to life in the notorious penal colony on Devil's Island. Determined to regain his freedom, Papillon forms an unlikely alliance with quirky convicted counterfeiter Louis Dega (Rami Malek), who in exchange for protection, agrees to finance Papillon's escape. This film is a thrilling adventure and a powerful portrait of the resilience of the human spirit, even in the face of utter inhumanity.

    Great Movie. Shouldn’t be over looked . Seen the older version years ago. This is a great version also . With a good cast & great cinema photography. Can’t blame the guy for wanting his freedom.

    Unexpected complementarity between Charlie and Rami; cool to see them break quasi-typecasts from SOA and Mr. Robot, respectively. Excellent, talented actors all-around. Movie ran 15 minutes too long - undisciplined editing - and would have preferred a little more thrill and kill than drama, but they perfected the ‘ole prison shank; it’s a great flick.

    What an incredible story of true survival through real friendship till the end. Talented actors, excellent cinematography and all the people behind this movie should be recognized at the academy award. This should be on the list of best picture, best cinematography, best leading actor and best supporting actor.

    Outstanding movie. So glad I ignored the reviews and rented it. This was the best prison escape movie I’ve seen since Shawshank Redemption, and it’s a true story to boot. Great job!
