Escape to Victory

Time Out says

Unsatisfactory both for fans of star-studded prison escape dramas and for football fans hoping to see cunningly devised tactics from Pele and his squad of internationals (half the Ipswich team in addition to Moore and Ardiles). If one buys the barely plausible notion of a squad of PoW soccer stars escaping from a Paris stadium, one is still constantly reminded by the rip-off music score just how inferior this is to The Great Escape. Stallone comes off best among the familiar gallery of Nazi and prisoner stereotypes.
