It's hard to see why this prison break remake needs to be almost half an hour longer than French original Anything For Her.
Still, it’s an honourable Hollywoodisation, with Russell Crowe as a teacher whose wife Elizabeth Banks is abruptly locked away.
As she turns suicidal, he lurches towards a rescue bid that checks credibility at the door but sees writer/director Paul Haggis shed the pretensions of previous ventures.
There’s still overwrought moral hand-wringing, but the climactic dash is spectacularly co-ordinated, while Crowe convinces as a bumbler turned cell-breaker.
