Von Ryan's Express,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Von Ryan's Express [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This flick is a little known suspenseful WW II action movie from the 60's. I would say it ranks below the two greatest classic WW 2 prisoner of war films, "The Great Escape"and "Bridge On The River Kwai", but It's still one of the very best of the genre and my absolute favorite film starring Frank Sinatra. Within a minute after his entrance to the film, you'll forget he was ever a singer and completely accept him as a brash P-38 fighter pilot., ,
The plot moves quickly and the suspense and action don't let up. I purchased the DVD years ago and the Blu ray is definitely worth the upgrade in picture and audio performance if you have a high def flat screen. Highly recommended.
