Never thought they could possibly recapture this incredible movie after the original classic with Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman...but they did and brilliantly. The two main actors had such synergism and were phenomenal. The cinematography was beautifully done. Totally enjoyed this movie!

FANTASTIC MOVIE!Reviewed bybobbiekostosVote: 10/10
I went to the theater without any prior knowledge of the story of Papillon. Meaning that I never saw the original movie. I had a blank slate. But I am glad I didn't because the film provided an experience.
Sentence to life in imprisonment for a crime that he did not commit in a hellish place impossible to escape. A man will spend a lifetime trying to escape. What a plot.
A movie about friendship, about destiny and the pursue for freedom, The cinematography is excellent. The color of the film. The set design.
One scene that keep popping into my mind is when the prisoners are first welcome to prison and the warden is telling them about the rules they must follow.
The warden was an excellent antagonist. The choice of customer design made him look like dictator who lack any remorse. Just looking at him you knew he had no empathy for anybody.
And of course the movie executed brilliantly in increasing the stakes as the film progress to lead to a finale that will grab and twist your emotions and even make you cry.
I left the theater feeling alive and yes I will recommend this movie to anybody who likes a good film .
Papillion is one of the best movies I've seen in 2018.
I love this remake. I loved the original.The only things I have issue with on the remake are the exteriors portraying French Guiana. I know this remake was shot in Europe. You'd think with modern technology they could've made it look like Guiana as opposed to Europe. The portrayal of the Salvation islands, especially Devils Island, is so historically incorrect. I still love the storyline. Charlie and Remi were perfect in their roles.In the original, you could feel their plight from jungle diseases and atmosphere. This one just looked like a dreary day in Serbia.
