Ten great escapes

In honor of this week's The Way Back, a gulag-breakout movie, we gather our favorite getaways.

FACE/OFF (1997)
We won't hear any disses of John Woo's deliriously fun mixed-identity thriller, a flick that not only swaps John Travolta's face for Nicolas Cage's (and vice versa), but includes one of the most explosive prison breaks ever to entertain an audience. The floors of this high-security jail are magnetized, so our hero must escape barefoot.—JR
