Brad Davis (The Player, Chariots of Fire) and John Hurt (Contact, Alien) star in this riveting truestory of a young American's nightmarish experiences in a Turkish prison and his unforgettable journey to freedom. Busted for attempting to smuggle hashish out of Istanbul, American college student Billy Hayes (Davis) is thrown into the city's most brutal jail. After suffering through four years of sadistic torture and inhuman conditions, Billy is about to be released when his parole is denied. Only his inner courage and the support of a fellow inmate (Hurt) give him the strength to catch the Midnight Express... and escape his living hell.

This has got to be one of the classic movies of the 70s.Besides being based on a true story it shows how gruelling it is to be encarcerated in a Turkish prison with a cruel warden who is completely ruthless in company with crooked solicitors who are only interested in money and not working for the benefit of the inmates.Brad Davis is excellent as the drug peddler and John Hurt is brilliant as his prison confederate.When Brad Davis finally escapes you realise the stroke of luck he had and the simple one in a million chance in a lifetime of pulling it off.Although the film was apparently shot in Malta you would not have realised this as the locale is typically Turkish.All in all a brilliant movie with excellent acting and the transfer to Blu Ray really does Midnight Express justice and is much much better than the VHS version I owned yesteryear.I would recommend this movie to anyone to watch bearing in mind there are a number of graphic torture scenes but this is not gratuituous violence but an insight into what goes on in prisons all over the world.In my book definitely 100 stars.
