While almost complete fiction, it is a very exciting conclusion to the two-parter.
29 February 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is the second part of a completely fictionalized account of Al Capone being moved from his prison cell in Atlanta to his new escape- proof cell at Alcatraz in California. While he really was moved from Atlanta to Alcatraz, the rest of the show is mostly hooey.

The show begins shortly after the train with Capone and other prisoners has left Atlanta. Ness and his men know that an attempt to free him will occur and it will be somewhere near Denver...but they need to do a lot of work to pin down the exact plan. Most of the episode, in contrast to the last, consists of Ness and his team's efforts.

This is a very tense and exciting episode...much more than the first part.
