"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.

"How i view this: another way June 29"


walterwhite posted a review 1 year, 1 month ago

“this if it was wrong to have too much hype But Is a great film

with one of the best performances of all time

one thing in case is that they extended it more being a problem being elongated by doing it with the possibility of being less memorable

the scenes of this movie are good and it even feels good to be of his time and color

one of the scenes that I liked most about the movie was all of the construction of the tunnel

in conclusion it is a great movie worthy of a view

but wait a good time to see it again” read more

" Notes: To be honest, even though I did like it, I didn’t really blow me away though. It is something rather common with a classic like this one, you hear about it for many years, you build up some huge expectations but, somehow, those expectations are not always fulfilled. I guess I should give it a second shot at some point. Still, even though it was slightly disappointing, it remains a really solid and entertaining WWII feature, absolutely. First of all, you had a great cast (Steve McQueen"
