This movie kicks ass
27 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

Burt Lancaster is awesome in this movie. It's a classic and I recommend it to all who like movies based on real life. I think that the best line in the movie is when Burt Lancaster says: Now this is how we're gonna do it."

I hope they have this at Blockbuster. I haven't seen this movie in 8 years.
