A classic World War II extravaganza!

"I haven't seen Berlin yet, from the ground or from the air, and I plan on doing both before the war is over."

John Sturges' The Great Escape is debatably the greatest World War II adventure film in cinematic history. Multitudes of film buffs will collectively agree that Sturges' classic action/adventure masterpiece is highly deserving of its reputation, everlasting acclaim and endl... read more

When I first saw this film which was a couple of years ago, I absolutely loved it but after revisiting it, I still really liked it a lot! It is a very entertaining film that is adventurous, quite funny and very intense especially during the escape attempts and when some of the prisoners become fugitives. There is one minor fault I have with this film was that I think it could have been about 20 mi... read more

You'll laugh, you'll cry, this movie will stick with you. What more can be said about a classic movie?
The Great Escape is funny and serious in good proportion. It has definitely aged well, being just as interesting, entertaining and relevant to modern audiences as it was the year it was released. I firmly believe that everyone should see this movie. Everyone.

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2017 (282 movies items)

"9.7. Lähestulkoon kolme tuntia jonninjoutavaa vankileiriltä pakenemista, joka ei kiinnosta pätkääkään. Jotenkin en vain voi sietää Steve McQueenia, joka on jostain syystä kaikkien poikien suosikki. Toki tuo jannu oli kovan luokan huimapää ja teki stunttinsa itse, mutta onko se sitten syy arvostaa häntä aikakauden parhaana näyttelijänä? Tunnari tässä oli mieleenpainuva, mutta muutoin Amerikka voi puolestani suksia vittuun. Voisin vittuiluksi antaa tälle yhden tähden, mutta t"

"15.3. Netflix Tää olikin näköjään sellainen vekkulielokuva, jossa välillä hassutellaan ja välillä muistetaan tehdä elokuvaa. Viihdytys lieneekin tälle pääfunktio, siinä onnistuu."

Movies Of 2017 (175 movies items)

"Can't remember how many times I've seen this, but like the escape itself it's been planned and exicuted perfectly. Intense, funny and emotional journey to freedom with some of the great actors of its time. Best part after the escape, is to watch how they dig the tunnels and plans the escape. Hookingly good. And that main theme is so catchy, that after years Im still whistling it. Shared With Milady"

Katsotut 2016 (235 movies items)

"Katsottu: 4. & 5.6.2016, rewatch, kirjaston DVD Tämä oli yksi lempielokuviani 10-vuotiaana. Nyt tämä ei ihan ansaitsisi neljää tähteä, mutta annoin silti. Monta 60-luvun kovaa jätkää mm. Steve McQueen, Bronson ja James Coburn pakenevat sakslaiselta vankileiriltä. Viihdyttävää ja pirteää menoa, mutta lopussa hieman tylsähkö. "
