Description
An update to the cult favorite series from the 1960s (in which government agent Patrick McGoohan was kidnapped and sent to a remote island known as "the Village"), this 2009 AMC miniseries remake of The Prisoner won Emmy nominations for Outstanding Cinematography and for Ian McKellen in the central role. The original was filmed in Wales; this version was shot in Namibia. Extras include unaired scenes, an interview with McKellen, commentary on two key episodes, and a Comic-Con panel.

"It's a clever and engaging reinterpretation … [with] contemporary tastes and sensibilities—notably, a postmodern fatigue with ideology and big thoughts.... The 21st century adaptation pays only lip service to the human condition, and instead explores a power struggle between two human beings … but the new series still manages to be thrilling."—NYTimes

"A triumph with something of The Truman Show about it … [with] a tension and a claustrophobia that gnaw away at you, making you look at your own psyche."—The Guardian
