No Escape

Synopsis: Robbins is sentenced to prison for the assassination of his general officer, a prison you leave only when you die. Since nobody ever leaves the prison, nobody knows what the prison is like. The prison manager realizes this and buys himself an island playground called "Absolom," where the worst prisoners are free to create an isolated barbaric society, and where the strongest men rule...a living hell. Robbins is sent to Absolom after he almost kills the prison manager.

We like to make absolutely certain they

meet the requisite physical demands.

So, just to get that old heart

pounding a little faster...

we thought five minutes

in the pool with Ralph...

our director of aquatic activities.


That's extraordinary.

It's not exactly what we had

in mind, but extraordinary.

I could use a man like you.

A position on my staff, perhaps.

We appear to have an opening.

Think about it-- deluxe rooms,

run of the grounds, free meals...

anyone you can catch, kill and eat.

- How's your health plan?

- That really isn't necessary.

The average life expectancy here

is-- what, six months?

I've been here seven years.

- And what if I say no?

- That would be very disappointing.

Listen, if you gotta go, you gotta go.

I'm not gonna stand in your way.

- I could probably use the...

- I'll stay.

I'll stay.

If you promise to hire

another lifeguard.


You want it?

Get out of the way!

That was a very silly thing to do.

Get him!

Let him go.


- Yes? What is it?

- Sir, transmission from the island.

Code seven.

Prisoner 2675 is alive.

He's at the Insider's camp.

Lower your end!

You don't ever go in there. Ever!

Bring some more water!

How are you feeling?

- Okay.

- Do you want to sit down?

- What's your name?

- Robbins.

This is Mr. Hawkins,

our chief of security.

- I'm known as the father here.

- The what?

"The father".

How'd you escape the Outsiders?

- What difference does it make?

- How'd you get past the traps?

What is this place?

Sanctuary, Mr. Robbins.

Most of the men here came

before the Outsiders got so strong.

But you were the first to ever

be captured by Marek and escape.

Not only escape...

you came out

with a very powerful weapon.

- Yeah, what about that?

- We've taken it for everyone's good.
