Papillon (15)


Drama based on the autobiography of Henri Charriere in which a man is framed for a murder and sent to a notorious penal colony in French Guyana.

The critical consensus

Charlie Hunnam is plausible but bland in this unnecessary account of Henri Charrière’s horrific incarceration on Devil’s Island and his daring escape.

Fails to do anything the original version didn’t.

Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 20/12/2018

Charlie Hunnam throws himself into the role of real-life escapee Henri Charrière, but Michael Noer’s direction loses it grip.
