Best Prison Movies

In many movies, we envy the protagonist, but prison movies are not among them. The best prison movies sometimes focus on those trying to escape from prison and sometimes trying to survive.

Best Prison Movies

Lifestyle - Listing

by Birsen Oray

Prison movies describe what happens in a completely isolated living space outside of our everyday world. One of the most important messages that prison movies contain is that not everyone in prison is guilty. Some of the best prison movies focus on the survival and escape plans of those imprisoned as a result of different slanders and plots. If we don't believe those people are innocent, why would we want them to escape from prison in the movie?

Movies about prison can also be called movies about prisoners. The performance of the actors portraying the prisoners also automatically determines the success level of the movie. There are prison movies that left their mark on the history of cinema. One of the best movies in history, and even the best according to many, is a prison movie.

The best prison movies, in a sense, focus on two different groups of people in each prison. On the one hand, there are the prisoners, on the other, the guards and the prison administration. I don't know if there is a rivalry between them in real life, but in prison movies there is more hostility than conflict. The best prison movies are generally in the drama, thriller, and action genres, and each manages to lock the audience on the screen.

In different periods, prison movies telling the stories of prisoners in uniform clothes were made, and this subject still remains popular today. To compile a list of the best prison movies of all time, I reviewed prison movies from the past to the present. I have selected the most prominent among them and listed the best prison movies for you. I hope you like prison movies that tell the stories behind high walls and barbed wire.
