Audience Reviews for Breakout

Should've been called Charles Bronson and friends. Chuck, Robert Duvall, Randy Quaid, John Huston and, of course, Jill Ireland star in this really fun flick where Bronson plays a fast talking, con-man, airplane pilot hired by Ireland to break out her husband from prison. Along with seeing Bronson in a fun role this is well worth seeing just for a splatterific scene straight out of Braindead (or Raiders of the Lost Ark for the strong stomached). After watching this I think the Russell Crowe, Meg Ryan flick Proof of Life (which I also enjoyed, gotta love David Morse and Caruso) should've been credited as a remake.

A damn fun prison break flick. The young Randy Quaid is hilarious to see! ;D Just a generally cool 70s flick. Worth seeing for sure.
