This was actually far better then I thought it would be. Great acting by Steve McQueen who played such a tireless character, especially when it came to the solitary part of the movie.
This is a definite classic.

A very good movie

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was starring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, I was really impressed. Indeed, it is definitely one of the best movies in this genre and, in fact, I do believe it is one of the best movies involving McQueen. I mean, sure, you could argue that the whole thing was barely original but I ... read more

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was starring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, I was really impressed. Indeed, it is definitely one of the best movies in this genre and, in fact, I do believe it is one of the best movies involving McQueen. I mean, sure, you could argue that the whole thing was barely original but I thought it was rather well made and it was definitely a compelling tale. Considering McQueen, he basically gave the same character he always played in all his movies, but, man, he does it so well, he was just really entertaining from the beginning until the end. Sadly, it would be his last great movie and the rest of his work would never be as compelling as it was here. Concerning Dustin Hoffman” read more

"06.05.2015 Steve McQueen on hikinen mies, vankilasta yritetään paeta ja maisemat ovat kauniita. Takakannessa luki, että tällaisia elokuvia ei enää tehdä Hollywoodissa. Se on tosi. "

"day 01- the best movie you saw during the last year Probably the one I can recall the best. Impossible not to, when you have one of the greatest duos in cinema history, Steve "the king of cool" McQueen and Dustin Hoffman. "

"Two of my favorite actors in one of my least favorite movies. This one just didnt click with me. However McQueens incredible portrayal of solitary confinement was both captivating and heart-breaking."
