Product description

Product Description

Steve McQueen stars in this classic war drama based on the book by Paul Brickhill. During World War II, a collection of hardened Allied prisoners are kept in an escape-proof German camp. Led by Big X (Richard Attenborough), the men formulate a plan for a mass breakout, digging three tunnels named Tom, Dick and Harry. The team behind the escape includes near-blind forger of passports Colin Blythe (Donald Pleasence), claustrophobic Danny Velinski (Charles Bronson) and the independent American 'Cooler King' (McQueen).

From Amazon.co.uk

Rightly revered as an all-time war movie classic, The Great Escape finally gets a long overdue Blu-ray upgrade. And it proves to be worth the wait.

The film itself is a regularly-rewatched classic, although the version that gets played almost on loop on television never looks this good. Based on a true story, it tells the story of a group of prisoners of war, who plan an ambitious breakout from a Nazi prison camp in the midst of World War II.

It's a long, patient, gripping piece of cinema, expertly directed by John Sturges. And what really, really lifts it further is one of the best ensemble casts in the history of film. Where else would you find Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Coburn and James Garner alongside the likes of Richard Attenborough? Furthermore, it's one of McQueen's most iconic performances, and considering the rest of his CV, that's no small feat.

The Blu-ray works hard to pull the most out of the picture quality, and while the 1080p transfer isn't reference quality, it's still very good. Furthermore, Elmer Bernstein's classic score has rarely sounded better. Backed up by an interesting package of extra features, The Great Escape Blu-ray is a fittingly strong disc for an excellent piece of cinema. --Jon Foster --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.
