| Slight crime drama
The Jailbreakers is a well filmed but slight tale of criminal revenge that plays like a malnourished predecessor to Arch Hall's The Sadist. Three criminals (including a psycho gunman) are out for revenge against the man who ripped them off, three innocent civilians get wrapped up in the proceedings, and the picturesque ghost town used for filming virtually the whole picture looks great.
