Criminals With Humanity,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Six Against the Rock (DVD)
This movie was an unexpected delight to see. I am not making light of the subject matter, either. This movie is grave in tone but shockingly not nearly as dark as I was expecting.
I freely admit I know nothing about the history of the Rock. I was simply looking for an interesting David Carradine movie to watch...This certainly fit that bill! I admire how this bunch of actors, headed by Carradine, dared and succeeded in showing something rarely seen--let alone with believability--that convicts are still Human Beings.
Longing for home, mercy, dedication, patience, friendship, suffering, and desperation are all showcased here. Without negating the gravity of these men's crimes, they cause you to see them as the 'likable underdogs' (half the outfit for me).
