What we think

First-time director Francis Annan makes use of his small budget with inventive camera work and in the design of meticulous and purposely repetitive set-pieces that are often agonising to watch.

What others think

The film has something pleasingly traditional about it, with tense nailbiting moments, slab-faced guards, and touches of The Great Escape and Papillon.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
Despite an inherently cinematic story and some effective sequences, Escape From Pretoria struggles to transcend a clunky, one-dimensional script.
