"Take me out from the ball game"Reviewed bybenbrae76Vote: 8/10

The script of this unusual war/escape movie was nothing special, and neither was the acting. Not surprising about the latter since half the performers weren't actually experienced actors. However I loved every minute of it, and thought it was great fun and terrific entertainment. Of course there are those who won't quite see it that way and will dismiss it out of hand. And they'd be perfectly sane to do so. Everything about "Victory" (aka "Escape to Victory" in the UK) says it's one to leave well alone.

Even if you disregard the lack of aesthetic qualities, and tut-tut over the reality of it all, it's worth watching if only to see again a few of the great past-masters of what the Brits like to call "the beautiful game" (i.e. soccer). And Sylvester Stallone as a goalkeeper is something to behold.

As far as escape stories go this is about as original as they get, but even here it's possible to see plundering from other story lines, i.e "The Great Escape", "The Password is Courage", "Albert RN", to name but three, and as at least one reviewer has pointed out, the music is extremely reminiscent of the first one.

One of my favourites snippets is that of the Nazi sports commentator, portrayed by Anton Diffring, that stalwart of war movies, broadcasting his gramophone record of enthusiastic crowd applause, when in "reality" the whole stadium was as quiet as the grave.

I think this is one of those rare occasions, if taken in the right vein, when a bad movie can be a crowd pleaser. Forget the war pundits, the realists and the purists. Just enjoy the movie for what it is. Tremendous fun!

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.

This is the antithesis to the "chick-flick" and up there with the great"male bonding" cameraderie movies such as "great Escape" and "The Man WhoWould Be King", and let's not exclude "The Longest Yard". Best scene by farin the movie is Pele's jaw-dropping upside-down kick, followed by Max VonSydow's sportsmanlike and awestruck applause, followed by glares of hatredfrom his German brethren. I can guarantee you that that scene is worth theprice of the admission(video rental) alone. As far as the non-soccer starcast goes, Michael Caine more than compensates for Sylvester Stallone, andthe rest do a credible job, with highest marks to Von Sydow as a 'good guy'on the other side.
