Prison Break Revival Is Full Of Mindless Action, Sloppy Storytelling, & Ugly Islamophobia! See The Sentencing In Our Review Roundup!

Filed under: TV NewsWentworth MillerNostalgia

no title

Fans of Prison Break may be excited for the return of the popular FOX thriller… but according to the critics, Season Five should have stayed locked up!

Just like its first run, the Prison Break revival offers high-adrenaline, loosely-plotted action involving the convoluted escape of a frighteningly gloom prison.

Unlike its earlier seasons, however, the new episodes embrace its mindless action while trying to convey an important message — which, due to cartoonish portrayal of Middle Eastern characters, comes off vaguely Islamophobic.

Although critics were happy to see the return of Wentworth Miller as riddle-minded escapist Michael Scofield, most couldn't get past the obvious glare of his unexplained resurrection after dying in the original run.

And while the easily digestible action was found to be entertaining, most critics felt the show's commentary centering around the very real conflict in Yemen was highly misinforming — and couldn't be airing at a worse time.

Ch-ch-check out our review roundup (below) to see the critics' harsh rulings!

Scary!!! But at least it sounds like he's going to be just fine!

Even if it doesn't look it…

Actor Dominic Purcell was injured on the set of Prison Break this week when a set piece made of iron fell on top of his head, breaking his nose and causing a serious head injury.

Purcell and the Prison Break crew were filming in Marrakesh, Morocco, at the time — and his injury was so severe he had to be airlifted to Casablanca for hospital treatment!

Fortunately, according to the latest reports, it appears that he will make a full recovery — and the show's production schedule was not halted or impacted by the accident, save for the initial pause when the injury occurred.

20th Century Fox, the company producing the revival of the famous Prison Break show from a few years back, just released a statement to Deadline about the accident, too:

We didn't see this coming, but we're totally on board!

Reboots and remakes are all the rage it seems in 2015, so FOX went ahead and decided to bring back yet another one of its former hits.

News broke on Thursday that Prison Break would be joining 24, The X-Files, and Heroes as the latest series to be brought back for a mini-series event.

But that's not even the best news — because both Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell are set to return for the 10-episode order!

[ Video: Watch The First Trailer For DC's Legends Of Tomorrow! ]

Original creator Paul Scheuring is already writing the episodes and you can expect to see Prison Break Part II either Summer 2016 or part of the 2016-2017 season.

We bet having Prison Break and DC's Legends of Tomorrow to film is making Dom and Wentworth pretty happy right now!

Will U be tuning in??

Mexican Drug Lord Escapes Prison Shawshank Redemption-Style — And Authorities Are Desperate To Find Him!

Scary stuff here!

Authorities in Mexico are in the middle of a massive manhunt to find Joaquin Guzman, a very powerful drug lord, who has broken out of prison… again.

Guzman, known as El Chapo, went missing sometime before a routine check late Saturday night at Altiplano prison in south central Mexico.

Allegedly, El Chapo escaped through a hole in his cell which wound through a mile-long tunnel to freedom, almost as if plucked directly from the film Shawshank Redemption.

The only difference is, Guzman isn't an innocent con, but rather one of the world's most powerful and dangerous drug lords. He initially escaped from a prison in 2001 by hiding in a laundry cart, and wasn't caught again until 2014.

The United States Justice Department isn't playing around, saying of Guzman's Sinaloa Cartel:

Convicted Murderers Escaped Maximum Security Prison Thanks To Their Insane Shawshank Redemption-Inspired Plan!

no title

This is such an unbelievable story!

Two prisoners from escaped from Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York in a scheme that seems like it's straight from the movies.

In fact, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo actually said that 49-year-old Richard Matt and 35-year-old David Sweat's escape was more intense than any fictional prison break he's ever seen!

Apparently, the two convicted murderers were inspired by Shawshank Redemption when they used power tools to cut through two walls, two pipes, and a chain-locked manhole early Saturday morning… Wow.

Plus, they took a play straight out of cartoons by putting makeshift dummies in their beds as to not raise suspicions while they booked it.

And as if their escape wasn't startling enough — the pair left behind a rather racially charged note for the guards:

Wentworth Miller Comes Out As Gay & Snubs Russia's Anti-LGBT Laws, & We Love Him For It!!!

wentworth miller russian smack down anti lgbt laws st petersburg film festival gay

Role model alert!

Wentworth Miller doesn't limit his heroics to our TVs — the Prison Break stud is a hero in REAL LIFE too!

Folks from the St. Petersburg International Film Festival recently extended a personal invitation to Wentworth, hoping he'd attend their prestigious event, but the now openly gay actor wasn't having it.

He made it clear that he has zero intention implicitly condoning Russia's horrendous treatment of its LGBT community!

Wentworth wrote the festival organizers a scathing response, saying he was "deeply troubled" by the country's anti-LGBT laws and that he won't be visiting that part of the globe until they make a few changes!

Not for a million Rubles! Not for a billion Rupees! Not even for a trillion rice cakes!

He revealed:
