Watched this after reading the book: it was an ok movie, but lots from the book is missing in this show. I read tidbits and details they just didn't include in the film. Plus, if you follow the movie, it looks like Papillon only tried to escape a couple of times when in reality it was numerous times. I don't know, the film is good, but I kept noticing details and added story facts that were missing...

It's an OK flick if you have not seen the original which is far and away better than this effort.

About an hour too long. First 45 mins was entertaining. Set design and scenery were great. Rami was good, as usual .. Hunnam ..adequate, but forgettable performance. Skip this one...watch the original !!

This remake cannot be compared with the 1973 original . Both Charlie and Rami are too young for their roles, and the makeup does not convince the aging, torture and treatment they went through. Charlie looked like returning from cottage after a long week end, compared with McQueen's posture, walking and talking. Do appreciate the extra ending that adds a lot of explanation to the story, especially for those who did not read the book.

I remember the original film with Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman. This version doesn't have the names and acting chops of those two but it's far better than most remakes and well worth watching.

Just how much can one human endure? A true story. Charlie looked a lot like Steve McQueen in the original Papillon. Way too long.

A good remake but the original version was better. Emotional story about friendship, loyalty and human survival.

I have to watch the original version again. This remake was good. Well acted. I didn't like the sexual content. I am not sure that was in the original movie.
