This movie is one of only two pictures starring Charles Bronson which use alliteration rhyming his last name with the picture's title. The words BRONSON - BREAKOUT share the same first two letters: "B" and "r". The other movie which also did this was Breakheart Pass (1975), interestingly, made by the same director (Tom Gries) and also made in the same year. See more »

I would recommend this file just so you could see a very young Randy Quaid dress up like a Mexican prostitute, but this film offers so much more. Its an excellent prison movie. The acting is very good, especially from Bronson. This is the perfect late night file.
