Actor Charles Bronson is seen in a brief shower sequence (the shower trap cleverly hides a tunnel shaft), but he is not visible from the waist down.


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


It’s too late. I’m a little tired and my neck hurts.

Let’s talk about something fun and exciting.

“The great escape” is another happy prison break film. It’s super good-looking. Hollywood was shot in 1963. It’s old enough. I want to say that this was shot in 1963, not the remake in 1981. There are a group of stars in the latter, but it’s not good-looking.

The great escape is adapted from Paul Brickhill’s work of the same name. It tells the true story of World War II – Allied pilots dig tunnels to escape from the prison camp. The prototype of the prisoner of war camp was the third prisoner of war camp (Stalag Luft III) in Poland, which was mainly used to hold Allied pilots at that time. The Germans were heavily guarded. By 1943, although the prisoners of war had tried to escape by digging tunnels nearly 30 times, they all failed. The great escape records a successful escape in 1944. The organizers tried to make 250 people escape, and finally 76 people escaped. However, only three people finally escaped, 73 people were arrested, of which 50 were secretly shot. (this passage was copied when looking up the background of the film. I didn’t write it. Solemnly declare, hee hee.)

I’ve seen a lot of films about World War II. Every time the German soldiers came out, I was busy looking at the German soldiers’ uniforms. However, I was extremely afraid, especially the scenes of the Nazis and the SS treating Jews. It was terrible. Therefore, when I finally found the 1963 version of the great escape, I took a deep breath and asked myself if I wanted to see it, It’s prison break and German soldiers. It’s not fun to scare yourself. I don’t like horror movies.

Later, I decided to have a try.

Ha ha, then, I fell in love at first sight.

At the beginning of the film, a group of prisoners of war captured by the Allied forces were taken to the German prisoner of war camp before they got off the bus. Just like in La Grande Vadrouille, they immediately made a funny mess. On the first day, the German soldiers caught two Americans and sneaked into the workers’ team in an attempt to escape. There were still four or six in the grass loading car in the back in an attempt to escape. And these naughty pilots also created a group of fun accidents.

The best pilot in the United States, holding a baseball glove and baseball in his hand, whistled bravely. After failing to escape from prison on the first day, he was sent to the confinement room for 20 days. Come out, go on. Anyway, he kept busy escaping from prison, kept being caught back, but never discouraged. I suddenly found out that this American is starring Steve McQueen. Ha ha, I have to watch it. His way of escape is really wonderful. You can find two searchlights in the blind spot of the lighthouse, and then get into the soil. Like a soil mouse, the soil dug out in front is put in the back, and repeat, ha ha, and go out. But outside, there are many Germans and they are always caught back. Go to jail.

The tone of the whole film is relaxed. It seems that the Germans are not so vicious to prisoners of war as to others. There are so many. About 250 prisoners of war live in a house with mutual respect. Prisoners of war also have senior officials layer by layer.

Later, under the command of senior generals, the prisoners of war began to excavate tunnels in an orderly manner. Hei hei, the classic way to escape from prison is to dig tunnels, dig all kinds of tunnels, but the tunnels in this film are quite professional! At the same time, three tunnels were excavated to prepare 250 people to escape. They were supported by boards and a trolley with pulleys. As soon as the rope was pulled, they ran past. It was very professional. The transportation of so much excavated soil is quite professional.

There are all kinds of talents among the prisoners of war. When making tools, a group of prisoners singing songs are covering outside the window. In the rhythm of the song, Ding Ding has just finished all kinds of tools; There are also many people who reclaim the land outside the window on a large scale to plant flowers and vegetables. In fact, it is to accommodate the soil of different color from the ground outside that we transport out in the morning and dig tunnels in the evening. Later, the camera constantly flashed over the land reclaimed by them. In fact, they planted some seedlings like dying shallots and died of laughter; There are also people who specially teach you to draw. When the Germans leave, they are actually pretending. The key point is that the real expert wants to draw 250 passes and train tickets for you. Of course, stealing regular things from the Germans is also a fairly high-level way; Some people work as tailors and use all the materials they can use to make different clothes for everyone according to local conditions, so as to ensure that they can smoothly get into the crowd or escape from Germany after escaping; The best man dug tunnels below. Since he was captured, the man has dug 17 tunnels and was caught every time. He led a group of people to continue digging the 18th tunnel (I don’t remember, too many); There are blowers and other things in the tunnel. They made them by themselves……

After the three Americans were released from the confinement room again, they began to collect potatoes. The lovely lens paved the way. Big baskets of potatoes were transported into the room by the Americans. The British were surprised. Unexpectedly, on July 4, the Americans raised the national flag, carried barrels of potato wine and invited all prisoners of war to drink to celebrate the national day of the United States. That scene was really shocking. Ha ha, potatoes can be brewed? Steve McQueen played this role too domineering and wild. Ha ha, this word is probably inappropriate?

Later, they lacked detailed maps and directions after going out. Steve McQueen bravely ran away like a mouse that night. The next day, he was caught again, but this time, he gave the British head with a sign of victory – he made the map outside!

After an unknown battle, the organized and disciplined air force prisoners of war finally repaired sections of the tunnel, dressed up and ready to go.

Then, after climbing out 76, he was found.

The second half of the film devoted a lot of space to describing the process of 76 people trying to cross the German border all the way. It was very thrilling and interesting. Of course, the most interesting thing was Steve McQueen. He stole German motorcycles and flew all the way along the border between Germany and Switzerland. He was so handsome that I didn’t always remember in La Grande Vadrouille, The large-scale scenes were completed at the German Swiss border. The endless pastoral scenery was quiet and unimaginable. It was the period of World War II in full swing. At the end of the film, Steve McQueen rode a motorcycle over the first fence 18 meters high. I don’t know if it was taken by a double. Otherwise, it’s hard to imagine that he can play like this at an old age. The drama is that he didn’t turn over the second barbed wire. He got entangled in the barbed wire and was caught alive again.

At the end of the film, only a few people escaped. It seems that 11 were sent back and 50 were killed.

The film ends in tragedy, but the spirit lasts forever.

A film can be made in that ancient era in the eyes of today’s children. It’s fucking fun.

I suddenly remembered a question. I’ve always resisted domestic films. It seems that I never thought about why. I just don’t like it.

Now I seem to understand.

Go back to these movies.

In the Shawshank Redemption, if Andy finally fails to escape from prison, the film will fail.

In Le trou, if five people escape successfully, the film will fail.

In UN condamn é à mort s’est é Chapp é Ou Le vent sofa o ù IL veut, if the protagonist fails to escape from prison, the film will fail.

In Papillon, no matter whether the final prison break is successful or failed, the film will not fail, but the last jump completed the redemption of the whole film.

In the great escape, the film is successful regardless of the success or failure of prison escape.

。。。。。。

I didn’t finish it. I don’t know if the nerve is wrong. I wrote these things at night. In fact, it’s not that I don’t want to write all the time, but that I can’t complete the clear logical order. After all, I’m not a professional film critic. I just love it. However, I find that my words are so pale when I want to describe my obsession with the art form of film. Hey, this should be a hard injury.

However, I will continue to work hard.
