Had read some positive / negative reviews so wasn't sure what to expect.
I cannot believe how emotional this film was! The beginning is good - we find out who everyone is and how everyone got to where they are, nothing especially exciting but well-written and acted. Then the film kicks into gear with the escape.
Honestly, I was actually shaking at one point with nerves because I wasn't sure if they would make it or not.
People criticising films for not being believable should go and watch documentaries.
This film was exciting, had excellent music, was well acted and the positives FAR outweighed any negatives.
Definitely glad I watched this.
