Alcatraz (2012)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
03.08.12

Alcatraz (2012) In 1962 all the prisoners were transferred off of Alcatraz, or so the story goes. In the present day a prisoner from back then reappears, having not aged, and he goes after a government official and shoots him. Detective Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones) becomes involved and teams up with Novelist/Alcatraz Expert Dr. Diego Soto (Jorge Garcia of LOST). They figure out who he is but it's puzzling why he hasn't aged. Then they come across a hidden facility beneath the former prison, run by Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill). It's revealed he was a young guard on the island--and was witness to them all vanishing. The fugitive is captured and Hauser has him imprisoned in a new state-of-the-art prison facility. He's collecting these guys from the past--but why?

In the second episode,ERNEST COBB, a sniper appears and he continues what he began in the late 50's. There's a bit more flashback story to him than there was with the first guy. In episode three, KIT NELSON, it's a serial killer of children.

There's not a lot of chemistry between the characters, especially Madsen and Soto. And I find it a stretch to believe that the four-hundred pound Soto would make a good investigative partner unless he just stayed behind a desk. I always try out a new horror or sci-fi show for several episodes before I decide to continue watching it or not. ALCATRAZ didn't make the cut. It's a bit like THE 4400, a bit like BRIMSTONE and THE EVENT, though not nearly as good as any of them. The first three episodes were too much alike, as if they were already locked into a formula.
