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.

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 ...

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
