  • Critical reception

    Sky Movies noted a "Low-budget, but very tense prison escape thriller, with a suitably tough performance from Canadian-born actor Lee Patterson as the jailbreak expert. The suspense also owes a debt to edgy performances from a number of faces familiar in British films, including Hazel Court, John Paul, Billie Whitelaw, William Lucas, Rupert Davies, Dermot Kelly and Terence Alexander. A gripper."
