Okay....All the extras are great...and there are MANY featurettes and interviews to keep you busy for hours....BUT..the main point I want to make is for all of you who don't care about extras and figure you already have this on DVD....you don't...
this transfer is AMAZING!!! it is a real HIGH DEFINITION transfer and STUNNING is what they say on the case and its true! Many DVDs say digitally transfered....and often that just means they pulled it from a previously issued laserdisc via digital output...you have never seen this movie this pristine....EVER!

Too bad they got so many things wrong with this movie. Biggest blunder is there were no Yanks in that camp. Many of the key heroes in the real story were in fact Canadians. Typical Hollywood BS.

The Great Escape is one of my all time favourite films and this 90th anniversary issue is the best looking version of this based-on-fact classic I've seen. It includes all of the same great bonus material as was released on the 2 disc dvd collector's set, plus maybe one more featurette, "Additional Interviews from the Untold Story". Though brief, this segment does conclude with the specific names, nationalities and ages of the "50" men. Highly recommended.

The film is great, we all know that.
The remastered audio and video alone merit the purchase.
My problem is with the way they took a 50-minute long History Channel documentary from some years back and "re-packaged" it as 5 10-minute featurettes. All they did was run the end credits of each "featurette" (which were really the end credits for the documentary as a whole) at what would have been the commercial break on the History Channel broadcast. Then, at the return from the commercial break, they inserted a "brand new intro" to make it seem like we were gonna watch a new featurette.
I guess someone in the Marketing department thought that "5 Featurettes" would read as a stronger selling point than "featuring a 50-minute History Channel documentary."
I swear, Marketing people must think we are stupid.
The end result is almost the same, except of course you have to weed through a few extra minutes of the same credit sequence over and over and over if you want to plow through the entire documentary. It's just a little insulting, IMHO.
But the movie is fun, the "separating fact from fiction" parts are interesting without being derogatory, and we get to see Steve McQueen and James Garner near their peaks.
Great film. Buy it, but take the packaging promises with a grain of salt.

A wonderful classic, which I hadn't seen in years. Only noticed one bad edit during the discovery of the tunnel by the Germans. Don't know if this mis-edit was part of the original movie or if it happened during the "to DVD" copying, but the same scene, a conversation among the American/British prisoners during the search, is repeated. Lots of great acting by well-knowns.

I've seen this movie more than twice and I still love watching it. Awesome cast & wonderful script. Was the sacrifice worth the victory? I would say definitely yes.

war movies ever made. And again, true story, good to see, so we won't forget how horrible any war is. Great acting, great plot, great scenes.
