Ok so there was not enough prison break movies to make a list, so I made a Prison Break and Survival movies list. All movies in this list are shown in the order of my liking, so if you don’t like it make your own list!. Also, there may have been some movies that would have qualified to be in this list additionally, but I narrowed it down to ten movies, sorry.
So I probably have suggested this movie previously in other lists of top ten movies but it remains one of the best movies of all time, and it just simply fits into the category of the best survival movie. A man of high education that get’s framed, doesn’t end in silence. Give him time and he will have justice, as knowledge is power which allows him to break free in a revengeful manner. Morgan Freeman also breaks free because of old age, which he legitimately walked out, but it’s still the best on my list.
2nd: The Hurricane
One of Denzel Washingtons best, a man that became a fighter in a world of racism gets framed and imprisoned. Within the power of his fans, and his knowledge he breaks free and gets revenge in the name of racism, those who wanted him kept behind bars suffered in his breaking free legitimately.
3rd: The Count Of Monte Cristo
One of the best movies with decent actors that I’ve seen in the survival genre, James Caviezel does an awesome job in acting and plays a really good role of being framed and breaking free from a prison that was only meant for people that others were ashamed of, or jelous of. With the power of money, from a treasure he discovered, he has nothing but revenge in the power of his hands.
4th: Con Air
Nicolas Cage has alot of great movies in his past. I wish he would just keep making good movies. There’s some movies hes in now that makes me wonder. But this is about a man that was only protecting the one he loved the most, and during the time of being flown to a different prison he is dealing with the devil of other prisoners trying to break out and hijack the plane. But he stops them and saves the day, so I give this the 5th place.
5th: Law Abiding Citizen
This remains to be one of the top movies I’ve seen in 2010, Gerard Butler remains to be the next Russel Crowe in my books. He not only breaks out of the prison in this movie, but digs a cave into the prison before he gets thrown in. In the end it’s shocking but he did a damn good job of acting, and showed his revenge through his own knowledge and power.
6th: The Rock
So two of the best actors are lined up in a great movie that was made perfectly, no mistakes here. As old as the movie is aswell, it’s quite a masterpiece. About a scientist and or chemistry fanatic (Nicolas Cage), that helps Sean Connery stop some terrorists try to destroy the city of San Francisco and other pieces of land while holding prison tourists hostage (because the prison is ages old and Sean broke out of it a long ass time ago). So it remains one of the top ten movies of all time in the survival genre.
7th: The Book Of Eli
I remember seeing this movie in the making on TV, and I wondered if it really would turn out to be as good as they said it would be. And so it turns out it was about a man who protects a book that is called something other than the bible but, “The Book Of Eli”. He’s got moves no one else can sport, so I give this movie the 7th place.
8th: I Am Legend
Famous for it’s scene of Will Smith driving a Mustang GT500 with a crossbow trying to kill a deer in downtown New York, this movie is about a man that must hide from the darkness of what creeps us out within, monsters that hide only in the dark, and in the midst of the sunlight they hide away. He searches to find a cure and or antidote to return these monsters back to normal humans.
9th: Behind Enemy Lines
It was what was turning out to be an awesome movie where no man ever imagined Owen Wilson being in a movie with guns and action other than his predictable Comedy movie genre within his ego. It was about a man that crashes a jet behind enemy lines, within a place where body’s were planted and the enemy didn’t want the U.S. Army to know about, and he finds it and returns home in the process. Gene Hackman backs him up and makes this movie a definite buy for sure, and after awhile of it being out, a “Behind Enemy Lines 2″ was released, which was another one of those cheesy sequels with no presence of Gene Hackman or Owen Wilson. It’s a shame.
10th: Enemy Of The State
Will Smith does it again, in one of his many movies that he did not fail in, which he hasn’t in any of his movies. About a man that withholds a piece of evidence of an assassination, he must run from the good guys despite them being the bad guys. And Gene Hackman is in this movie not even around to back Will Smith up since he always does an awesome job. And many explosions later, it end’s with a very kick ass ending making it worth tenth place, definitely worth buying for sure.
