Kind of silly....
15 October 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Escape" was a pilot for a TV series that never was approved by the networks and like what was often the case in the 1970s, the pilot was shown as a movie of the week on TV. In the case of this one, I could understand why it wasn't approved...it was awfully strange...even for an action/adventure show.

The film stars Christopher George as 'Cameron Steele'...a man of adventure much like The Saint, James Bond and Mannix put together. This case is a weird one, as the trail eventually leads to a supposedly dead man. Now here's the kicker...the guy has a Bond villain-like lair hidden in an amusement park funhouse! And what's he doing in there with his minions? He's working on creating life from non-life--but not like creating a Frankenstein's monster but by creating a germ-like thing that will potentially destroy all life on the planet! Can our man of action possibly stop this madman?! Well, considering it was supposed to be a possible series, it doesn't take Einstein to conclude that the planet will not be destroyed!

This is an odd one...that's for sure. After all, the likes of Huntz Hall and Avery Schreiber co-star in this! A strange confection....kind of like a movie serial and adventure film that left me feeling a bit baffled at its oddness. Not bad...just odd and a film that makes you wonder what the folks were trying to do here.

If you want to see this film, a very yellowed copy is available on YouTube.
