Storyline

America's most infamous maximum security prison Alcatraz, home to the country's most dangerous criminals, is considered to be an impenetrable fortress. A group of prisoners, led by an armed robber and a gangster, are tired of living under the thumb of the strict warden and his sadistic guards. The inmates formulate an escape plan and on the 2nd of May 1946, their fight for freedom begins as they take several guards hostage and attempt to break out of the institution. But the prisoners didn't count on the Warden's determination to maintain Alcatraz's fearsome reputation. Soon they are facing not only the Warden's officers but the might of a military team led by a tough General who believes in fighting fire with fire. This is the powerful real life story of the Battle of Alcatraz, a fight to the death that only the most brutal and cunning will survive. Written by North Bank Entertainment

Trivia

The story of the film is based on the real life Battle of Alcatraz, which lasted from May 2 to 4, 1946, and was the result of an unsuccessful escape attempt at Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary. Two corrections officers were killed along with three of the inmates. Eleven corrections officers and one uninvolved convict were also injured. Two of the surviving convicts were later executed for their roles in the doomed escape. One of the convicts involved, Clarence Carnes (who at the time was the youngest prisoner in Alcatraz history), did eventually get released from prison in 1973. However, he breached his parole conditions, was sent back to prison and died there in 1988. See more »

Goofs

The U.S. military officer's apparel, "camo" uniform and even his tinted sunglasses are way too modern for a film set in 1946. See more »
