Respected "action" director William Witney did little to enhance his reputation with this barely-passable B-movie in which the color photography is focused but the script is not. It's set in 1918, mostly in the infamous penal colony, and there are the inevitable and seemingly sure-fire ingredients: brutal guards, beleaguered prisoners, harsh punishments, back-breaking labor, corruption, sadism, homosexuality, and lots and lots of beefcake. All those sweaty, sun-bronzed male torsos! Surprisingly, the script creates neither compelling characters nor a gripping story-line out of these ingredients, and the movie simply rolls along from incident to incident with little sense of pacing or structure. What mild interest it's managed to generate tends to dissipate once the escapees are off the island and trying to hide out in a provincial town. Still, the look of the movie is bright and colorful and top-billed Jim Brown and Christopher George infuse it with some welcome doses of male charisma. Supporting players James Luisi and Richard Rust are just as strong but, regrettably, disappear from the proceedings just when they're most needed. (Curiously, one year after the release of this movie, both Christopher George and Jim Brown posed in the nude for Playgirl centerfolds, George in the June '74 issue and Brown in the September '74 issue.) The DVD from Blax is sharp with good color but while the pictures on the case are from the movie in question, the ad-copy on the case refers to the 1935 Victor Jory movie, "Escape from Devil's Island.

I have been after this film since seeing on television in the late 1970s. A nice wide screen print and the cast including Christopher George, Jim Brown and Paul Richards are a their best. Add this to your collection today.

I loved this movie. It was full of jam packed action.Jim Brown to me is the ultimate bad ass. He is tougher than Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger put together.
