    A compelling tale of real-life events that unfold with a sense of urgency not often duplicated in today's cinema. The only criticism I can fire at it is that, on just one viewing, it can be difficult to learn who all the characters are. 8 years 4 months ago

    A war movie classic, it is quite long and a true story to boot. Despite the length, you're never quite sure who will make it out alive and the various escape plans are quite entertaining. 11 months 4 weeks ago
