THE PRISONER * (VHS Release Germany 1992)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì 

The Prisoner
, fresh and interesting, works within the Chinese prison culture to establish its story. Watch for a young Jackie Chan who acts as a supporting cast member in the movie. While it works within a C-grade level range, the film provides cultural insight and easily becomes worthy of its watch.
