| Realistic and intense ...............
When Alcatraz films are compared, "Six Against the Rock", is rarely even mentioned. That is a real shame, because it compares favorably with better known movies like "Escape From Alcatraz" and "Birdman of Alcatraz". The film is realistic and intense, having been filmed entirely on Alcatraz. The acting is totally acceptable, and except for a few brief talky parts, holds interest throughout. As the escape plan comes undone, and the situation deteriorates, the desperate plight of the escapees becomes crystal clear, and their fate sealed. I liked David Carradine's logic, and David Morse's ferocity. Jan Michael Vincent has a very minor role, as does Dennis Farina. Recommended. - MERK
