A war movie classic, it is quite long and a true story to boot. Despite the length, you're never quite sure who will make it out alive and the various escape plans are quite entertaining.

Having just read the Paul Brickhill's book it was based on, I have new found love for this movie. It is surprisingly accurate, and on rewatch I found a lot of fascinating details I hadn't noticed before. Not only is The Great Escape a thrilling and insanely fun movie (with one of the best casts ever), it is also a tribute to the men in Stalag Luft III.
