I have been a fan of all the "Classic" escape movies of WW2 such as the Great Escape! After reading several books on "Colditz" and the exploits of the POW's, I could hardly wait for the movie to arrive. After watching the Colditz story I was very disappointed at the lack of escape attempts outlined in the books such as the "Glider" I also found the humor of this movie very corny. The German guards are portrayed as idiots without a clue as to what is going on which made the move even more unrealistic. The various books written about Colditz are not done justice by this movie.
