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.
I gave it 3 stars for the content of this good WWII movie, but the technical rating is no more than 2 stars. It's surprising that with Frank Sinatra and Trevor Howard, that Fox didn't bother to do this film right as it should be.
When U.S. combat pilot Col. Joseph Ryan (Frank Sinatra) is shot down over Italy and later captured by Nazi forces, he does what it takes to survive in the prisoner camp, including befriending his captors. Ryan mocked by his fellow prisoners Von Ryan takes over the commanding British Office played by (Trever Howard) and tries to win over the men to make an all but suicidal attempt to commandeer a German Train to the safety of Switzerland.
Re BluRay. I note some people have responded that the transfer is not that good. I would like to know more about this before I would consider buying the BluRay version.

I saw it several years ago, this time it was as entertaining even though I knew it had a sad ending. Great acting as well as action without a lot of special effects.Published 6 months ago by Ernest Davis
I have seen many of Sinatra's films and this was one that I was told was a must see. Sinatra is OK as a 50 year old action hero. Read morePublished 11 months ago by filmfiend
