Movie Info

Ron Perlman ("Hellboy" and "Sons of Anarchy") is electrifying as a corrupt and cold-blooded sheriff in this contemporary western that delivers a double-barreled blast of action. After two deputy sheriffs lose their jobs because of poor arrest records, they purse an escaped convict to try and win back their badges. But nabbing the convict won't be half as dangerous as facing the ruthless sheriff who is tracking their every move.

Critic Reviews for The Escape of Prisoner 614

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

Writer/director Zach Golden, making his feature debut, does all right by the silly but warmhearted character dynamics and the retro-diner humanism.

April 27, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A handful of fine actors are wasted in the limp comedy "The Escape of Prisoner 614," a period picture that never figures out exactly what it's spoofing.

April 26, 2018 | Full Review…

A pastiche of western tropes too tongue-in-cheek to sell its dramatic intentions, but just sincere enough to smother any intimations of parody, "The Escape of Prisoner 614" never commits to a consistent tone.

April 26, 2018 | Full Review…

This satirical, modern-day Western induces a few mild chuckles but mostly wastes the talents of its cast.

April 25, 2018 | Full Review…

More of an absurdist comedy than an uproarious one, this mostly works because McDorman and Starr play things completely seriously.

June 22, 2018 | Full Review…

... doesn't have the satirical dexterity to generate any substance beyond its slapstick shenanigans.

Audience Reviews for The Escape of Prisoner 614

Kind of a letdown given what I could hope of from a Ron Perlman/Martin Starr team-up, but pretty much exactly as bad as I suspected it might be based on the trailer.
