one of the earlier prison break movies and certainly sets the bar high. Great performance from Clint - clever little bits make it a believable and solid film - holds its own even now.

Description: Frank Morris (Clint Eastwood) arrives at Alcatraz in 1960 after having successfully broken out of several other prisons. He seems to inspire respect or hate just by his presence. A brutish prisoner (Bruce Fischer) ties to kill him when he dosen't respond to his sexual advances; the meticulously chilly warden (Patrick McGoohan) knowing his background throws out a challenge — "No one has ever escaped from Alcatraz"; a black con (Paul Benjamin) gives him all the dope on the power structure; a mild-mannered prisoner (Frank Ronzio) with a pet mouse relates to him like a brother; and an old man (Roberts Blossom) who retain ...

“the story was done well until the escape had good performances

A good direction from Don Siegel

One thing that I liked was the rhythm that I was not fast or slow

with a good rhythm good acting and script

this deserved a look

Movie Reviews (651-700) (50 movies items)

" Escape movie based upon a true story and is filmed at the Alcatraz prison where it all happened so this one has great location work. It has a lot of that stuff that has become tired cliches now but the over-dramatic beginning with the obvious "Welcome to Alcatraz" mixed with a lightning strike at the right moment is too funny to take serious and strikes no fear in either us or in Clint Eastwood. The warden is unsurprisingly a very bad guy that try to make life living hell for his prisoners. Pro"

A good movie

“Since I always had a weak spot for Clint Eastwood, I was really eager to check this movie. On top of that, it was the last movie Eastwood would make with Don Siegel (they eventually made 5 movies together) so the whole thing sounded really neat. Basically, it turned out to be a rather classic and straightforward prison break thriller but the whole thing was so well made and Clint Eastwood was so charismatic, I thought it was pretty damned entertaining. Furthermore, to make this story take place in Alcatraz, probably the most famous prison that ever existed, was a great idea as well. Eventually, even though this movie never got the status of ‘Dirty Harry’, it was certainly not far behind quality-wise. In my opinion, I believe it was slightly missing some depths about the characters and ” read more
