Well done in all aspects.
31 January 2019 | by honestjohngSee all my reviews

I am very impressed with the stories of those who have been "Locked Up Abroad". The interviews and recreations are excellent and give one a view of what can happen if you make a bad decision and think you can get away with it. Billy Hayes was the most prominent many years ago but far too many either never saw "Midnight Express" or simply never thought it could happen to them
