Why do they make new versions of films done so well in the original? The original Papillon gets an 8 rating in IMDB. Well deserved. This flaccid re make gets 6.5. Why did they bother? Has Hollywood just run completely out of imagination to do new stories?

Better left to the originalReviewed bydonduttonVote: 2/10
Flat characters and unimaginative, choppy direction attempt to tell the story of the friendship of two convicts.
There's a lot of emphasis on a few brutal scenes yet there's scant coverage of the relationships of the characters. But for the most part it's just a visual jumble. The narrative jumps about and spends too long on lingering scenes and nowhere near enough time on characters and the linear story-line.
The effects of years of brutality have almost no physical effect on the prisoners who look like they just hopped out of make-up after a good lunch!
The 1973 version is timeless and a work of cinematic genius. This version will be forgotten in a few weeks.
Our characters years of isolation and desolation were remarkably well balanced with action sequences
Excellent character design and performances
The young director director really had a flair for keeping the subject matter interesting and not overwhelming bleak as one would think
My best film on this first day of Tiff 2017
I think Rami Malek might get a best supporting Oscar nod for this role to go alongside his Emmy - he was brilliant
Dustin Hoffman should take note of this performance
Very good achievement in film.
