This film tells the enthralling, heroic and also tragic stories of the experiences of a group of WWII POWs. Based on a remarkable true escape. It does take some story-telling and film-making liberties, but these are justified by the results: a really gripping tale of the sacrifices and determination of the real men on which the film is based. If you are a war history buff, a 'heroes-against-the-odds' fan, or even just a motorcycle nut, you will love this one. Video and sound DVD transfer quality is most impressive.
