The Great Escape - REVIEW

Film of the Day #100/ 300

The Great Escape is one of those rare movies that warrants a recommendation despite being tremendously overlong. A tense, fascinating and action-packed adventure, The Great Escape is based on the true escape plan from Stalag Luft North. Boasting an all-star cast, headed by a terrific Steve McQueen, Great Escape is one of the greatest, most enjoyable WWII adventures Hollywood has made. Bank holidays would be vastly inferior without it.
