Prison Break Season 1 cut down into three films by Boon.

A/V: There were a number of rough A/V cuts throughout, which I can forgive to an extent as this is an older edit. A/V Quality was good considering the release date.

In regards to the story, perhaps a few additional scenes should've been cut, a bit of melodrama, unecessary setup, most of Tancredi's scenes, police discussions. However, the majority of what was kept was the best of the show, so no major complaints here. Pace was quite good, but not too high - no cramming of plotpoints. I would say however that Maricruz's brief introduction should've been kept, as we see the cousin but not her, and she's important to Sucre's story. Also, minor plothole: Lincoln shows up out of nowhere at the end.

Overall, it's great watching Prison Break without most of the filler, the conspiracy subplot, and Lincoln's kid. Definitely superior to the original. Thanks to Boon for making this, this'll be my Prison Break go to from now on, I look forward to the next two parts.

What a great achievement! I remember liking the first season of Prison Break (twelve years ago...), but this edit is better. Way better. So much fluff removed, yet it's still coherent and, above all, still thrilling! The video quality is what it is, but the editing is almost perfect. Once or twice there is a hard cut, but that's about it and it does not ruin anything. Audio editing is splendidly done, especially considering the re-arranging and the other reasons stated in the info.

CBB manages to create a fun, tight and exciting movie that is narratively reasonable, considering the amount of footage removed. Highly recommended for everyone, particularly those who want to re-visit PB but find the 22 episodes daunting.
