Kill Bill’s running away with it. Kick-Ass is second. Scream 1-3 is (are?) third. And Tinker Tailor (streaming at no extra cost to your normal streaming package from 30 June), The Guard (from 16 June) and Green Zone are next.
Cell 211 is rooted at the foot of the table. Which isn’t surprising – we asked for your favourites, and loads of people simply haven’t seen this Spanish language prison thriller. Yet.
If that’s you, do yourself a BIG favour, and stream it now. Or sometime very soon.
If you are one of the few who HAVE seen it, please please please comment on this blog – that way, people don’t just have to take my word for it when I say that it’s superb.
Which it is. A nerve-shreddingly tense thriller that makes Prison Break look like a Disneyland ride.
It’s about a keeno new guard in a maximum security jail, who goes in the day BEFORE his first shift to have a look round. He gets caught in an unused wing when the inmates riot and take the prison. All the guards leg it. He’s caught in there, in civilian clothes, and now his only hope of survival is pretending to be a new convict. And never letting on who he really is.
And without actors we know (ie stars who are probably going to make it to the end of the film), the safety net is gone too.
So why not watch the original now, at no extra cost, and join the small but growing army of flag-wavers for this terrific crime thriller. And, if you feel like it, comment here to let everyone know what you think…
