Critic Reviews for The One That Got Away
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.
