• Escape Route is a low budget quickie with ageing US star George Raft as Steve Rossi.

    Rossi shows up in London, skipping the immigration queue and looking for an old friend called Grand.

    Grand is elusive and wants to stay that way. Rossi is in fact a FBI agent who is investigating a gang kidnapping western scientists and taking them to Eastern Europe. Rossi teams up with the British secret service agent Joan Miller (Sally Gray) to apprehend Grand.

    Raft looks a bit stiff and the romance with his younger star Sally Gray looks a bit ikky.

    The film is ponderous, the title of the movie makes no sense. It is efficient but the plot seems all over the place with no tension or thrills.
