    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. 2 years 9 months ago

    Having just read the Paul Brickhill's book it was based on, I have new found love for this movie. It is surprisingly accurate, and on rewatch I found a lot of fascinating details I hadn't noticed before. Not only is The Great Escape a thrilling and insanely fun movie (with one of the best casts ever), it is also a tribute to the men in Stalag Luft III. 3 years 3 months ago
