Breakout

( 1 )

Overview

This solid, tough-as-nails Charles Bronson action movie may not be one of his most memorable offerings, but it does contains enough suspense and some good acting by everyone involved to make for a entertaining evening. Ultimately the best place to see a Bronson movie is in a drive-in theater. But this DVD should do the trick nevertheless. Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment's disc presents the movie in its proper 2.35:1 aspect ratio (enhanced for widescreen TVs) and remastered in high definition. The picture is ...

Ultimately the best place to see a Bronson movie is in a drive-in theater. But this DVD should do the trick nevertheless. Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment's disc presents the movie in its proper 2.35:1 aspect ratio (enhanced for widescreen TVs) and remastered in high definition. The picture is sharp, colorful, and overall excellent. In fact, this new digital transfer really puts to shame previous video releases. Who knew Breakout could look so good? The disc also contains English and French mono soundtracks. Neither one of them is spectacular, but they do the trick. Ample chapter stops have been supplied, although there is no trailer available.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This Charles Bronson vehicle isn't one of the star's more demanding roles, but it's fairly entertaining nonetheless. Breakout is basically a B-movie with A-movie resources: the plot is old fashioned adventure stuff tarted up with a nice budget and some name acting talent like Robert Duvall and John Huston. The script is a bit wobbly -- the finale leaves some loose ends dangling and the film's caricatured treatment of its Mexican villains isn't likely to endear itself to the politically correct -- but it makes up for these flaws with plenty of action and some amusing characters. Bronson gives an energetic, surprisingly comedic performance as the film's hard luck hero and Randy Quaid and Sheree North add a welcome touch of color as his low-rent partners in crime. Duvall and Huston are rather wasted in their limited roles, but their presence lends some added class to the proceedings. Capping it all off is sturdy direction from Tom Gries -- he manages to gloss over the story's simplistic nature by attacking it with vigor and style, especially during the taut prison-break finale. His efforts are furthered nicely by rich, widescreen photography from Lucien Ballard and a rousing, Spanish-tinged score by Jerry Goldsmith. All in all, Breakout probably won't win Charles Bronson any new fans, but his existing fanbase will find it to be a fun if modest diversion.

    LIFE IMITATES ART

    In 1975, the Michigan Dept. of Corrections showed this film to inmates at Jackson State Prison. Two days later, the dramatic helicopter escape scene was played out in the prison courtyard. It was without the same cinematic success. Life imitating art aside, this is a quickie enjoyable Bronson timewaster. Lots of action and a very viewable Sheri North in lingerie that leaves nothing to the imagination. Good little flick.
