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.

"Watched: 1/27-28/14 2nd Viewing This is still as great and as much fun the second time around. I just can't stress enough how much I adore this movie. The entire cast gels together to perfection, and there isn't one scene that goes to waste. They are all packed with something. One of the best adventure, comedy, thriller, dramas (?), That I've had the experience of seeing. It's just a blast to watch. Simple as that. 10/10"
