Great movie to watch.amazing acting of Clint Eastwood in his portrayal of Frank Morris, showing also the abuse done in the prison system based on actual facts. Worth to take time to see this movie, even that leave us to wander what really happened to these 3 men: Did they survive the escape somehow or did they drown in the cold powerful waters.......

Produced and directed by Donald Siegel in 1979 based on the 1963 non-fiction book of the same name by J. Campbell Bruce, this American docudrama depicts the escape of the three men from the infamous maximum security prison.
It is an edge-at-your-seat thriller you should be able to enjoy to the hilt.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”
