Screen legend Clint Eastwood (Coogan's Bluff, Dirty Harry) and director Don Siegel (Two Mules for Sister Sara, The Beguiled) re-team for their fifth and final film in this fascinating account of the only three men ever to escape from the infamous maximum-security prison at Alcatraz. In 29 years, the seemingly impenetrable federal penitentiary, which housed Al Capone and Birdman Robert Stroud, was only broken once by three men never heard of again. Eastwood portrays Frank Morris, the cunning bank robber who masterminded the elaborately detailed and, as far as anyone knows, ultimately successful, escape. Patrick McGoohan (Ice Station Zebra, TV's The Prisoner) is a superb counterpoint as the suspicious warden. Filmed on location in Alcatraz, this gritty and realistic reenactment of a true story has all the power one expects of an Eastwood/Siegel movie. The stellar cast includes Fred Ward (Remo Williams), Roberts Blossom (Deranged), Jack Thibeau (Sudden Impact), Paul Benjamin (Across 110th Street) and Larry Hankin (Running Scared). Screenplay by Richard Tuggle (Tightrope), based on a book by J. Campbell Bruce.

    Clint Eastwood, für mich einer der besten Schauspieler aller Zeiten, spielt seine Rolle genial. Der Film ist von Anfang bis zum Schluss sehr spannend.

    Dies ist einer der besten Ausbruchsfilme überhaupt (natürlich neben einigen anderen : Gesprengte Ketten,Midnight Express etc.) Aber die Spannung des Films wird im ganzen Film vorangetrieben; im eigentlichen Knastaltag,der Planung der Flucht und dem Ausbruch selbst. Dazu greift man auf gute Darsteller zurück wie Clint Eastwood ,Fred Ward,oder Patrick McGoohan als Gefängnisaufseher den wir vorallem als Bösewicht in einigen Columbo-Serien kennen. Und wer selbst schon mal auf Alcatraz war(als Tourist) dem kommt das ganze noch realer auf die Linse. Wie die DVD ist kann ich hier nicht sagen aber der Film ist

  • Ein Knastfilm.....
