  1. gld48's rating of the film Papillon

    Saw a long time ago. Can't face it again.

  2. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Papillon

    A bromance and a heartbreaking prison escape film that The Shawshank Redemption melodramatically and eye-rollingly replicated decades later, sans the epic sweep and elegant appeal of this film. Despite having some different situations, the themes are exact: the maintaining of hope and dreams. Yet, Papillon knows how to make it as equally sad as it's uplifting without succumbing to Hallmark bullshit sentimentality.

  9. Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film Papillon

    Good performances but I found it inert and ultimately overrated.

  10. Ethan's rating of the film Papillon

    This is a pretty badass movie and a different side of Steve McQueen.

  11. Cindy Ho's rating of the film Papillon

    A story about dreams: those who give up on them, and those who don't.

  12. Meastro0's rating of the film Papillon

  13. Dombl's rating of the film Papillon

    Dustin Hoffman and Steve McQueen just play wonderful. Also the movie is hard to watch sometimes you just burst out in laughter, for example when they both have to kill the crocodile or when they climb over the wall to break out of the prison. Wonderful!

  14. anarresti's rating of the film Papillon

    The book is quite the tale. Hard to believe that it all happened. But a feast to the imagination of the reader. It captures all your fantasies about freedom and the rewards of not giving up and finding your place. This movie did take it to a higher level, with good actors, fulfiling it. While it does not leave to the imagination, all the gaps and gray areas, like literature does, it does makes it a bit more credible.

  15. Frederico Cintra Torres's rating of the film Papillon

  16. Fabio Nosotti's rating of the film Papillon

  17. Tigrão's rating of the film Papillon

    There's something intolerably sad about the last 30 minutes of the film. That brilliant duet of middle-aged men living on a ridiculous island, maddened by the heat and the life they've lead, still trying to escape. Brilliant.

  19. CafeGradiva's rating of the film Papillon

  20. MS1915's rating of the film Papillon

    Whenever I think Steve McQueen, I think of this film.

  21. -VAHID-'s rating of the film Papillon

  22. Stevan Bjeletić's rating of the film Papillon

  23. David M.K.'s rating of the film Papillon

  24. Algitya's rating of the film Papillon

    Yeah. a triumphant surviving film that left me with lot of memorable McQueen performance and not to forgetting a support by Hoffman that made a kind of Superior bromanceship
