Suspense & Intrigue in a Combat Episode
Jim Marchese from Mesa, AZ USA
16 October 2014
"Evasion" is a story about Lieutenant Hanley's escape and efforts to
make it back to Allied lines with valuable intelligence information.
Captured by the Germans and amongst a group of higher ranking officers,
they make a decision to spring Hanley from confinement because he has
memorized the location of an excellent bombing target which could
cripple German war efforts. During his journey, he runs into almost
every bad bend in the road.
Esther & Bob Mitchell wrote a fine screenplay in that we get a glimpse
of what it's like to move about in German occupied territories in World
War II Europe. We also meet a couple of conscientious kids from the
German youth program and experience the brainwashing potential of a mad
dictator. Intrigue and suspense levels are high during the journey and
the story flows quite well.
Lloyd Bochner is excellent as Major Thorne, a happy go lucky free
spirit who accompanies Hanley on the 2nd part of his escape. Monique Le
Maire is equally excellent as the beautiful Julie, portraying an
ambivalent mistress who finally realizes the evil character she's been
Julie pulls off a memorable ending and gives it a very feminine touch
similar to what we see in a Mission Impossible episode. She reminds one
of Impossible Mission Force character Cinnamon Carter.
"Evasion" was fun to watch; suspense and intrigue made up for the lack
of combat scenes.
