When Major Karl Von Steiner sees POW's playing football he suggests afriendly match between the guards and a select 11 of the prisoners. Howeveras word of the match spreads, the German high command seize on it as achance to publicly show the strength of the Germans to the world, while theescape committee within the POW camp start planning for a major escape tohumiliate the Germans on their big day.

Well worth seeing simply because of the range of `famous' footballers in thecast and the fact that it is one of a select few films that is based aroundfootball. That is not to mean it is any good – because of course it simplyisn't. The film is a strange mix of POW movie and sports movie. The POWside of it is full of cliché and rip offs of better films, the music itselfsounds like a watered down version of The Great Escape. The football actionitself is saved for the final third. I think the film would have workedbetter if it had focused more on training (al la Dirty Dozen) rather thanopening up the stuff around Hatch's escape. As it stands the game isactually quite enjoyable, of course it doesn't really play out like a realfootball match, but it's very hard to get that in a film.

For all those who say that coming back from 4-1 down at halftime isunrealistic and laughable, I say HA! A few seasons ago I watched Man Unitedwin 5-3 over Spurs despite losing 3-0 at halftime. Even in the past 3 weeksI have seen both Wolves and West Brom come back from a 3-0 halftime loss towin 4-3 against Leicester and West Ham respectively. Of course the longmidfield runs etc are a little unrealistic but the game itself is the moreenjoyable aspect of the film.

The cast are not that great. Caine does almost nothing and seems to havejust been interested in playing football alongside Pele and Moore (whowouldn't!). Pele, Moore and the other footballers all do OK and seem happyto play (but have major problems with delivering their lines withoutsounding a little wooden). However, Stallone is probably the best of thecast. For the most part his performance is pretty weak and he is forced tobe a strong chin in an escape plot, however he also does well with somecomic stuff and seems to enjoy being a footballer!

Overall the film is a very strange hybrid, none of which really works verywell. It is best viewed as a bit of fantasy football where the `Brits' beatthe Germans at football (and everything else) mainly worth watching becausethey can't do it in real life! The sub-par rip offs of other films keepreminding us that this is not as good as it's peers, but it is worth seeingif you are a football fan – even if it's a pretty poor product as afilm.

Any football fans out there? If you haven't seen Escape To Victoryeither at Christmas, when it is usually on at a ridiculous time of themorning, or hired/bought it on DVD then you are really missing out.

There is a fair amount of disbelief suspending that needs to take placebefore you settle down. But, if you can numb your brain to the idea ofMicheal Caine playing professional football or indeed, SylvesterStallone doing the same in goal, you're in for a treat.

As a football fan, it was a real thrill to see the great Bobby Moorekicking a ball in anger and, against the Germans too (remember what Isaid about suspending disbelief).

OK, it isn't the greatest film ever made. But it isn't supposed to be.It's a bit of bubblegum that is just supposed to kill a couple ofhours. A feat the movie accomplishes handsomely.

I defy any football fan not to cheer when the goals go in or to cursewhen the Germans do well. Similarly, try and stifle your guffaws whenyou see Mr Caine trying to look like he knows what he's supposed to bedoing. Is it just me or does he become more cockney when he tries toconvey excitement in any of his roles?? Probably one of England's moreone dimensional acting talents.

If you don't enjoy it, you're missing the point of it. Nobody will everforget horror of war, it's ingrained. That isn't what this film isabout although it does have a stab at giving the viewer a clue aboutthe life of a POW in WWII.

No, the film is about entertainment. And, on that level, it's one ofthe good ones.

I was looking through the action collection at the video store and trying tofind something that might interest my husband and myself, a daunting task. When I picked up Victory, I thought 'why not?' as it has Max Von Sydow whowe both enjoy. The fact that it had Michael Caine was an added bonus. Besides I wanted to know what kind of film could have those two ANDSylvester Stallone. Somehow I couldn't picture Stallone playing footballwith the Europeans, at least not doing it well. I was right. Stallonecouldn't play, but it didn't matter because that was part of the shtick forthe character.

I'll admit that there were a couple of places where the plot was ratherpredictable and places where I simply thought it was completelyunbelievable. However, all in all I would recommend this movie. It's funand, at times, touching.
