Allied POWs plan for several hundred of their number to escape from a German camp during World War II.
What an epic film that I really enjoyed! It is such an amazing achievement. A picture that is complete with great acting, wonderful directing and awesome cinematography. Though it has a long runtime, you don’t get the sense that it drags on. Instead, it keeps on going smoothly with great plot twists until it reaches a very satisfying ending. A film that is worth all the hype and a true cinema masterpiece.
