A very watchable escape movie made in the days when prison movies were about camaraderie in the face of adversity and patiently executed, ingenious escape plans rather than skinheads and buggery. It's refreshing to see Clint acting without the use of his fists and the scenes involving Patrick McGoohan's coldly evil warden confiscating an ageing lifers art materials for his own petty reasons is a highlight. Maybe a little uneventful for the action junkie, but suspenseful and atmospheric with some well written dialogue.

Now this is truly a great escape - for both the viewer and the characters. You will get lost in the atmosphere here, and as Alex so long ago suggested, fans who like Shawshank Redemption should make it a point to check this one out.

I can not help but love this movie. Eastwood puts on a good, smart performance, but the atmosphere is what separates this movie. Put this on your list because if you like Shaw Shank (who doesn't) you will like this!
