It is this DVD that makes me glad I bought my DVD player. the transfer was perfect. Here is a movie almost 30 years old and it looked ABSOLUTELY brand new. As far as the story goes, I guess there are a number of films that you can put in this unique genre, that being Prison Escape movies. Most made are alos very good, The Great Escape, Shawshank Redemption, Escape from Alcatraz... Only in its letterbox fashion could I appreciate the effort made to make this film. Great camera angles, super story and super acting. One of the best transfers i have seen visually, but the audio even in Dolby Digital 5,1 is not the best I have heard.

4 1/2 out of 5 stars. Gary
