Trivia

Actor-director John Huston plays Harris Wagner in this Charles Bronson movie. About four years after this picture was made and released, Huston was scheduled to direct Bronson in Love and Bullets (1979). This was going to be the first movie where Huston directed Bronson. Pre-publicity advertisements for Love and Bullets (1979) announced this in trade paper 'Variety'. Huston left the picture due to creative differences with the films' producers having filmed just a few scenes and was replaced with director Stuart Rosenberg. See more »

Not exactly a must-see flick, BUT...
29 October 2000 | by (Eureka CA) – See all my reviews

"Breakout" is a lightweight action film but worth a peek, especially if you're a Charles Bronson fan. It's not one of his best movies but manages to be entertaining, albeit corny, most of the time. If you want to see a great movie with Bronson in it, check out "The Magnificent Seven;" if you want to see a great Charles Bronson movie, watch "The Mechanic."
