Association football plays a central role of the film. A team of Allied prisoners of war (POWs), coached and represented by Englishman Captain John Colby (Michael Caine) (who was a professional footballer for West Ham United before the war) agree to play an exhibition match against a German team, only to find themselves involved in a German propaganda stunt.

"Katsottu: 1.3.2012 Syltty pelaa jalkapalloa Michael Cainen ja Pelén kanssa. Samalla yritetään paeta keskitysleiriltä. Ihan kiva idea ja toteutuskin on menevä. Jotain tästä kuitenkin jäi puuttumaan. Ehkä se keskitysleirielämä ei aivan vastannut realiteetteja. Liian puhtoinen kuvaus omalta osaltaan vähän vesitti teemoja. Noh, lopetus oli onnistunut, joten kyllähän tämän kerran tai toisenkin katsoo."

Escape to Victory

“Association football plays a central role of the film. A team of Allied prisoners of war (POWs), coached and represented by Englishman Captain John Colby (Michael Caine) (who was a professional footballer for West Ham United before the war) agree to play an exhibition match against a German team, only to find themselves involved in a German propaganda stunt.

Colby is the captain and essentially the manager of the team and thus chooses his squad of players. American POW Hatch (Sylvester Stallone) is not initially chosen, but eventually nags the reluctant Colby into letting him on the team.

Colby's superior officers repeatedly try to convince Colby to use the match as an opportunity for an escape attempt, but Colby consistently refuses, fearing that such an attempt will o” read more

Mustanaamio7's Movie Diary - Year 2011 (713 movies items)

"12.4. 2011 One of the last works by John Huston combines elements from escape and sports films. In the plot Allied POWs prepare themselves for a soccer game against the German National Team. Meanwhile, British officers and the French resistance are arranging an escape plan for the prisoners. "Victory" praises solidarity and sense of honor, but the director mostly resorts to recycling old cliches from different genres. It is also a little too unrealistic to be taken seriously. At least the cast "

Based on a true story - Yeah Right! (12 movies items)

"The Film: Allied prisoners of war must play the Germans in a game of football (soccer) - during the match they hope to escape to victory, but the need to win at all costs sees them play to the end. The Fact: No British, Americans or even Pele took part! It was a 100% Ukrainian team, whose players were spotted by the Germans and were invited to play against an army team - the Ukrainians won. The team then played a series of matches against German teams, emerging victorious in all of them. In t"
