The story of two men in jail who escaped when they were going to be transferred into another place
19 October 2001 | by esteban1747See all my reviews

This is a remake of the famous film of 1958 starred by Tony Curtis and Sidney Poitier, i.e. a white and black men who hated each other but at the end both understood that their reason and means to escape are the same and it did not matter with the skin color. Weathers although not Poitier as an actor was close in his performance to Sidney. I cannot say the same about Robert Urich who was very far to be at the same level as Tony Curtis. Again here color and photography were much better than the version of 1958, but nothing else.
