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.

25 From 73: My Favorite Films of 1973 (25 movies items)

"Some men were just not meant to chained. Particularly, when those chains are a result of a frame-up, which then leads to a life sentence on what is considered the french version of Alcatraz. Cool 60's icon Steve McQueen teams up with new generation 70's actor Dustin Hoffman in this based-on-true-story of perserverance that challenges the strength of the will for freedom against the impervious odds of the infamous & inescapable Devil's Island.

" March 17th I don't know what aspects of the story are faithful to the autobiography the film is based on, but the turn of events in the film's final act really made the film meander, a shame since I thought the first two thirds of the film where solid."
