Alcatraz. Only one man has ever broken out. Now five million lives depend on two men breaking in.

Rating: R16 Violence and offensive language


Roger Ebert


A first-rate, slam-bang action thriller with a lot of style and no little humor.

Variety (USA)


This is a pure popcorn picture that benefits heavily from its trio of highly skilled, charismatic leading thesps, an unusual setting that provides plenty of visual stimulation...

Washington Post


A violence-intoxicated, far-fetched, morally corrupt drama.
