5.0 out of 5 stars Not an accurate account of the story but very good film., 21 Sep 2003
This review is from: Midnight Express [DVD] (DVD)
I love prison escape films like shawshank redemption and especially true prison escapes like Escape from Alcatraz and Midnight Express. This film isn't an accurate account of the story but still a very good film. I would definately reccommend it.

That would take the reviewer into the territory of major spoilers.

Stuart: During various occasions and interviews, screen writer Oliver Stone and writer Billy Hayes have made apologies for the negative portrayal of the Turkish people in the film. An amateur interview with Hayes appeared on YouTube, recorded during the 1999 Cannes Film Festival, in which he described his experiences and expressed his disappointment with the film adaptation. When he visited Turkey in 2004, Oliver Stone, who won an Academy Award for the film, made an apology for the portrayal of the Turkish people in the film. He "eventually apologised for tampering with the truth. You'll find zillions of videos and other references available on the Net about how the movie deviates from the book's accounts of the story, and Oliver Stone's statements about how he over-dramatised the script. This is why its not accurate. Please make some search and learn the truth...

Based on a true story does not imply it has to be entirely accurate, it should be broadly accurate, which it is,like Escape from Alcatraz, which is not entirely accurate either.
