An old classic

It is a rather old movie with Burt Lancaster in one of his first parts. It is not bad at all and definitely worth a look, especially if you're interested in the old classics.

Burt Lancaster had one of his first starring roles in this hard-hitting prison drama. Capt. Munsey (Hume Cronyn) is a cruel, corrupt prison guard who has his own less-than-ethical ways of dealing with inmates, enough so that Joe Collins (Lancaster) -- the toughest inmate in the cell block -- has decided to break out. Collins tries to persuade Gallagher (Charles Bickford), the unofficial leader of ... read more

“Burt Lancaster had one of his first starring roles in this hard-hitting prison drama. Capt. Munsey (Hume Cronyn) is a cruel, corrupt prison guard who has his own less-than-ethical ways of dealing with inmates, enough so that Joe Collins (Lancaster) -- the toughest inmate in the cell block -- has decided to break out. Collins tries to persuade Gallagher (Charles Bickford), the unofficial leader of the inmates and editor of the prison newspaper, to join him, but Gallagher thinks Collins' plan won't work. However, Collins does have the support of his cellmates, most of whom, like himself, wandered into a life of crime thanks to love and good intentions. Tom Lister (Whit Bissell) was an accountant who altered the books so he could buy his wife a mink coat. Soldier (Howard Duff) fell in love wi” read more

"10.7. Melkoisen tylsä vankiladraama, jossa kaikki vangit ovat aivan totaalisia spedejä. Hyräilijäpoika on ihan vitun perseestä, mutta lopun mellakkakohtaus upea."

"Burt ei kyllä erityisemmin vakuuta Brute Forcessa, mutta ei toisaalta paljon mikään muukaan. Burt on vankikaveriensa kanssa vankilassa, ja he suunnittelevat pakoa. Yllättävä juoni saa vielä yllättävämpiä käänteitä, kun selviää että Burtin naisella on sairaus johon kuolee jos Burt ei palaa kotiin koska hän EI JAKSA ELÄÄ. Twistit jatkuvat kun kaikkien Burtin frendien rikokset näytetään takaumina, ja kas kas, kaikki ovatkin melkolailla syyttömiä! Yksi toi sodassa ruokaa ja "
