Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: It’s kind of fun the way the prisoners sneak things past their idiot captors.

Con: It’s very heavy-handed message fiction, with little else to recommend it.

The scientific elements are way off. For example, the global warming described is far beyond anyone’s worst-case scenarios even for the next several hundred years.
