Escape From Pretoria ★★★½

This is a very by-the-numbers prison escape movie that I really enjoyed. It doesn't take too many risks, but I found the movie to be better than I thought it would be. The acting is all really good, and the movie was filled with a lot of tension (some of it silly though, like the gum scene). The movie's characters are a bit bland, but serviceable to the story at hand.
