So so good! Old as dirt, you might have to go to the local library to rent it but it is a seriously awesome flick!

I also reccommend Escape From Alcatraz,
wow, I forgot to add that to my top-5. I choose to replace #3 with Escape From Alcatraz. It’s also really old, but it’s so edge-of-seat-type-of-movie!
