I was supposed to love this movie, right? Paul Newman! Steve McQueen! Amazing interior decorating!
I didn't love it though. It was okay I guess. I'm sure I would have liked it back in '74 or if I had seen it when I was 12. But, man, was it slow. It took me many sittings to get through the 2 hours and 45 minutes. And the fact that it won Best Picture proves even more that the Academy isn't just stupid now, it has always been stupid.
Newman and McQueen were great though as were all of the actors - Fred Astaire, Dabney Coleman, Fay Dunaway, Robert Vaughn, Richard Chamberlain. Even O.J. Simpson was fun to see. And some of the scenes of the escape attempts were interesting to watch. But it was just so so so damn long.
Directed by Irwin Allen and John Guillermin
