Why do they make new versions of films done so well in the original? The original Papillon gets an 8 rating in IMDB. Well deserved. This flaccid re make gets 6.5. Why did they bother? Has Hollywood just run completely out of imagination to do new stories?

Better left to the originalReviewed bydonduttonVote: 2/10
Do yourself a favor and read the book written by the protagonist. This movie has nothing to do with the original Papillon's story. What a shame! It feels like the director, editor, writers have not even read Charettiere memoirs. Who sold out? I hope the money was worth it.
Another remake of a timeless classic and it fails to deliver. Sure, it has its moments but the McQueen/Hoffman original is far more intense and convincing. Just look at the image gallery for that version here at IMDB; those are convincing enough imho
