DailyView: Day 361, Movie 515
Escape from Pretoria tells the true story of one of the great prison escapes of all time, with three political prisoners escaping from Pretoria in South Africa in 1979.
Based on the novel Inside Out: Escape from Pretoria Prison by Tim Jenkin, who was one of the escapees, played here by Daniel Radcliffe, Escape from Pretoria was an exciting prison escape film that showed how intelligence are the most valuable weapons.
Daniel Radcliffe continues to push himself further away from Harry Potter with every film choice he makes. Honestly, I saw more Wolverine in him than Harry Potter.
There are plenty of moments of tension and anxiety that builds up with the movie. Several times when you have that feeling of holding your breath because you are afraid of whether or not the protagonists were going to get caught.
Apartheid is one of the most horrible governments in recent history and to see some of the struggles to oppose the racist, hatred of the evil government. It is a great thing that this government crashed.
