On May 2, 1946, six Alcatraz inmates staged a prison mutiny, capturing the cell house and seizing the attention of the country. David Carradine (Kill Bill, Kung Fu), Dennis Farina (Saving Private Ryan, Snatch), and David Morse (The Green Mile, Twelve Monkeys) star in this dramatization of their incredible battle against impossible odds.
Known as Hellcatraz by its prisoners, the maximum security island prison saw eight escape attempts while in operation. By far, the most dramatic breakout was the daring 1946 attempt. Filmed on location at "The Rock," the film's ensemble cast also includes Howard Hesseman (About Schmidt) and Jan Michael Vincent (Buffalo '66).
Based on true event, it is full good actors which make this a great movie to watch. One of my favorite prison flixs.Published 18 months ago by JP

I did not know this movie existed, until recently visiting Alcatraz, so when I saw it on amazon I had to see it. Not a bad movie.Published on August 9, 2013 by Stephanie
What a piece of crap movie! Low budget, cheesy acting, looks like a film student filmed and wrote it. Prison inmates try to break out of prison and just all get killed at the end. Read morePublished on March 5, 2010 by Nicole A
