Best prison break films

Add a list or tag with showdown:jailbreak

Sharpen your nail files, distract the guards, dig a tunnel out: this week’s Showdown celebrates the best prison breaks in movie history. Whether innocent or guilty, incarcerated in a POW camp, Alcatraz, a prison colony in outer-space, or a chicken farm, we want your ten best jailbreaks on film. Collect some sheets for your makeshift hot-air balloon and we’ll see you at the border.
