\"Some men are destined never to leave Alcatraz... alive\"
I've seen several movies on life in prison, several on escaping from
prison, and a few on Alcatraz. But now, they've all been mixed
together, with Clint Eastwood in the center.
The set was as authentic as it could be, it was actually Alcatraz.
The acting was perfect. Clint Eastwood strolled through this movie
naturally as Frank Morris, the inmate who was destined to escape
Alcatraz. Fred Ward was a natural as John Anglin, and Jack Thibeau as
Clarence Anglin, the brothers who accompany Frank in escaping. Larry
Hankin was surprisingly good as Charley Butts, Frank's neighbor who
wants in on the escape. Roberts Blossum was well cast as Doc, the
inmate who survives off painting. Paul Benjamin was very very good as
English, the man of color who seems like the well-educated type. Frank
Ronzio was entertaining as Litmus, the sort-of comical inmate. Bruce
Fischer was good as Wolf, the troublesome inmate. And Patrick McGoohan
was excellent as the Warden of Alcatraz.
The story was well written to fit the true story of 3 men's escape from
Alcatraz. Although it was most likely altered, it is still definitely
one of Eastwood's better movies.

Im really eager to watch this movie.
a strong storyline based on described as unescapable u.s. prison island
with water all around called alcatraz. Clint Eastwood in strong role in
strong film story tries to do the great feat of escaping. The film is
based on true escape from alcatraz which makes film interesting. Well
acted and a good film, clint eastwood's calm and determined role is
memorable. He had become big star around 1964 and was making big films
through 1970s. Patrick Mc Goohan stars in one of his best roles as
hard, stern prison governor with a suspicious, no nonsense approach.
This role type hadn't been seen played by Patrick Mc Goohan before. (he
was a prisoner himself in popular 1960s TV series) There's great
attention to detail and great scenes such as shock mutilation prisoners
workshop scene, fooling guards, making escape tunnels. The film gives
good insight to prison life and routine and shows daily lives of
prisoners inside the prison.
