After watching Prison Break Season 4, I had no desire to watch this 2-hour addition, but I just wanted to complete the circle.
I have read that this was made because the network gave the ok for 2 additional episodes after announcing the show was canceled.
This "sequel" (it covers a short period between the moment the team gives back Scylla and the 4-year anniversary of Michael's death), shows how Michael breaks Sarah out of a woman's prison.
If we just consider that the whole team was given full immunity for getting Scylla back, this edition is utterly absurd and an insult to the show's fans.
I gave it 2 stars because the actors continue to give strong performances, because it is more in line with the fast pace rhythm of Seasons 1-3, and because it tried to give some solace to the many fans who were devastated by Michael's death; by showing that he died honorably, of his own choice, by sacrificing his life for Sarah's freedom.
I am one of those fans who was very upset with the fact that Michael was killed off in Season 4, but I can accept that sometimes there are creative decisions that fans may not agree with.
If Season 4, including this Final Break would have been intelligent, not so full of inconsistencies and ridiculous story lines; I would be more willing to accept Michael's death. I think many fans are disgusted because to add insult to injury, the writers gave us an unrecognizable Prison Break in Season 4 (see my review); and a 2-hour sales pitch to the network for doing a show on a woman's prison, with this Final Break segment.
I feel cheated by the writers, not because they didn't give me a happy ending, but because they gave me a stupid one in this Final Break and Season 4 fiascos, after creating one of the best shows of television history.
Don't waste you money on this, folks!!! It is a total & blatent ripoff!!!
The "Final Break" itself was fun to watch. It adds a bit more to the series, you get to see some of your favorite characters again (I don't want to spoil all the returns) and it's quite interesting to see the little sister from "A League of Their Own" (it's one of those "is that her? wow" type moments). This is essential for fans, will complete your Prison Break Collection and is worth watching.
My complaint though is I can't help but feel a little ripped off. For almost $15, I essentially get the equivalent of 2 episodes (when full seasons of 20+ episodes can be obatained for under $30-$40) with nearly NO SPECIAL FEATURES. All they give you is a couple weak deleted scenes. It would have been quite interesting to at least hear some commentary, or a featurette as to why this disc was created type-of-deal.
The right thing to do would have been to put this on the season 4 DVD. That would have bolstered season 4 sales and been a nice thank you to the fans. I realize that overall this might yield better profits, but it was the wrong thing to do.
