The One That Got Away (2012)

My Rating

Movie Info

This is the dramatic true story of Franz Von Werra, the only German prisoner-of-war in Britain to escape and return to his homeland. During the Battle of Britain, his plane is hit and it plunges down onto British soil. Even though the pilot is captured, he is extremely confident and focused on his plan: to escape and return home against all the odds. Starring Hardy Kruger, who was a real-life prisoner of war, as von Werra in his first UK production.

The Brits seem to be in a generous mood acknowledging the dashing heroic feats of their black leather jacket wearing fair-haired pilot prisoner.

...a top-notch suspense thriller, with fine acting from everyone involved but especially from Hardy Kruger, who holds it all together splendidly.

The German POW character played by Hardy Kruger is not terribly different from Steve McQueen's star-making role in The Great Escape - the dedicated escape artist who singlemindedly focuses on getting out of enemy clutches.
