Format: DVD
This movie is based on a true story about the 1940's escape of several inmates from one of Stalin's infamous Siberian prisons. The men have been almost de-humanized in the camps and even though their sojourn, on foot, from Siberia to India is marked by death, starvation, fear, cold and heat, the journey allows their humanity to re-emerge. The movie focuses more on the group's survival instincts than on the individuals which, I think, is a reflection of their experience. The ending is nicely done, understated, and allows the acting, rather than wordy dialogue, to portray what the motive for survival was about.

The actors, Ed Harris, Jim Sturgess, Colin Farrell, and the rest of the cast, are excellent. There are no moments of drama just for drama, and the actors rose above most of what I have seen them do in previous movies. Ed Harris is outstanding, as always, and sets a tone of quiet desperation mixed with sorrow and determination. I'm sure making the movie was a once in a lifetime experience for them as they must have endured very dangerous and unpleasant settings in the mountains and deserts in which the film takes place. Saorise Ronan brings a positive and vulnerable energy to the group in her role as the orphan who follows, and then joins the group.

I recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys movies that are historical and based on true events, or anyone who likes good acting and great film THE WAY BACKmaking.

The book was better even though the movie is very well done. It is sometimes difficult for a movie to mirror the book, and in this case the movie left out some important parts of the book such as the camp commandant's wife helping the escapees to prepare for their breakout and the great aid that the firearm provided that they took from the old Tatar hunter.

This is not a true story, but is based on and inspired by real events. The movie takes us from a Siberian gulag in 1940, where human beings have been reduced to survival at any cost, to the escape of seven prisoners, to an incredible journey by foot across formidable winter wilderness, to freedom. We witness the depths of depravity than man can fall to, and the heights of sacrifice than man can make to help another. The filming of this movie was an adventure in itself, I'm sure. The survivors travel through seasons and climate zones, experiencing hardship and tragedy that without this movie we couldn't imagine. I recommend this story to those of us who benefit from being encouraged by the human spirit's ability to persevere through severe suffering.

This movie, while billed as a stunning portrayal of human courage, heroism and survival instincts, lacks a credible plot and character development. Having read the controversial book behind the film, I was hoping that Weir would have worked some of his renowned magic and transformed an unwieldy, disjointed and unlikely tale of a mass escape from a Stalinist prison camp deep in Sibera into a fascinating adventure of discovery and triumph. That never happened, as far as I can see. The film simply followed the book, trying to recreate a lot out of nothing, accompanied by small talk and startling moments here and there. Working against this film is the fact that it isn't what it claims to be: it is not based on a true story so out the window goes any chance of learning something about the truth of history. Like the original author, Weir, the filmmmaker, may be just trying to win the viewers' confidence by wowing them with natural scenery, a fantastic storyline, and a feel-good outcome. Without any serious character development where individuals reveal their true human spirit under great hardship, this movie is a flop. Topping up the cast with big names like Farrell and Harris does little to conceal the fact that the movie is just as poorly conceived and loosely constructed as the book itself. The triumphing of the human spirit has to have a solid story to go with it in order to be convincing.
