…The Great Escape is that rare war film that doesn’t fully indulge in assumed nationalism, save for the fact that everyone speaks English. Sturges never touches on the essential hollowness and cruel pageantry of war, but he does the next best thing by depicting an international effort where victory, no matter how short-lived, depends on the cooperation of myriad talents, rather than the gruff can-do attitude of an unbreakable chosen one.

Way too flabby at 168 minutes, but once this 1963 feature gets going it’s good, solid stuff, directed with an unusual lack of rhetoric by John Sturges (Bad Day at Black Rock).
