Amazing prison escape story based on actual facts. Clint Eastwood is fantastic in his portrayal of Frank Morris. This is a good tense film!

This was a good movie. The portrayal of prison life was quite vivid and lets us see the abuse that those in authority commit. Unfortunately if you get sent to prison, it's not because you forgot to take the garbage out, especially a prison like Alcatraz where some of the most notorious criminals went. But as we all saw, nothing was able to keep these men from escaping, so the convicts pulled it off even though they may have died at sea since they were never found.

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.”

What makes it even more impressive than it would otherwise already be is that there's very little dialogue (25 pages, maybe?).

This is clearly where the ideas for "The Shawshank Redemption" came from.
