It's worse & commits the one crime a movie never should: IT'S BORING!!!!!

So slow & talky, the characters are spoon-fed to the audience (CZJ is bisexual!!! Oh! Shocking! Owen Wilson is.....zzzzzzz, Liam Neeson is, er, Liam Neeson), and it just plods along until you just want to spin the disc out the window!

Sorry, but it's still so dull.

Paramount are setting up their own physical operation in the UK again so I suspect stock being run down from the Universal relationship etc.

Warner not even putting the UK title on the packaging of this UK release is giving me serious Forest Whitaker eye

The Sea Wolf, released the same time, is a definite buy for me as is ESCAPE TO Victory.

Music's better as well.


From Wiki....
Music
Nearly all of the film's music score borrows heavily from the first and last movements of Dmitri Shostakovich's Leningrad Symphony, particularly the march theme of the first movement, which is almost quoted verbatim, a practice which the composer Bill Conti would later employ in The Right Stuff with Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto. Shostakovich's Symphony No. 7 has always been associated with secondary meanings within the music aimed at the Stalinist regime's overwhelming repression of individualism and freedom of expression, but at the time of its composition during the war was said to represent the oppression of Nazism. At the end of the film, the last part of Shostakovich's Symphony No. 5 is also used to signify the triumphant conclusion of the story. However, while the music may fulfil the final moments of Escape to Victory's exultant ending explicitly, it is believed Shostakovich wrote the ending to his symphony to imply forced rejoicing under an authoritarian force. More prosaically, the music also pays tribute to Elmer Bernstein’s score for The Great Escape.

I do admire people who go against the grain, so I need to reconsider my position here.

Let's think... erm... nope!

Don't get me wrong,TGE is a classic,but I was brought up on football and Rocky and Carter's team getting one up on ze Germans is just unbeatable.
