Classic. Heroic. Thrilling.
During World War II, these allied prisoners of war have escaped from every camp that they’ve been held captive in. So the Nazis build a special camp made just for them. Thought to be impossible to escape out of, the POWs plan a massive prison break, revealed in elaborate detail from the planning to the exciting execution. Thrilling adventure film with real stakes and a cast of some of the coolest men ever (McQueen, Garner, Bronson, Coburn), each given their chance to shine. The tunnel sequence when the lights go out on Charles Bronson is an all-time great suspense scene. And, of course, the score is iconic.
