"I've never been raped."
"We should all be so lucky."
Tom Gries, director of Breakheart Pass, Helter Skelter, 100 Rifles, Will Penny, Journey through Rosebud, Lady Ice, and Girl in the Woods, delivers Breakout. The storyline for this picture is above average for the genre and fun to watch unfold. The script is pretty witty and the characters are interesting. The cast includes Charles Bronson, Robert Duvall, Randy Quad, Jill Ireland, and Sheree North.
"What are you going to do, condemn a man because he was caught?"
I DVR'd this because it starred Charles Bronson, Robert Duvall, and John Huston (in a small role). All three of these men are eccentric, recluse, Hollywood heavyweights and I thought it would be cool to see them in a picture together. Overall, this is an above average action picture that is worth a viewing but far from a classic or worth adding to your DVD collection.
"Rape me. I'll help you."
A fun 70's actioner with a good cast, and an on fine form Bronson performance. The story is as simple as bread and butter that works very well here, and the movie also boasts one of the best bad guy deaths ever put to film. Randy Quaid dressed up as a woman was hilarious. Well worth a look.
also stars Jill Ireland, Sheree North, Alejandro Rey, Paul Mantee and Roy Jenson.
directed by Tom Gries.
Err when exactly is Bronson actually in prison?
Don't take it all to seriously and you should enjoy it, unless your a complete snob with no sense of humor. I do agree that Robert Duvall is wasted.
When Jill Ireland's husband (Robert Duvall) is sent to prison for something he didnt do she hires Charles Bronson to break him out.
Features an excellent score by Jerry Goldsmith too!
